Adopted child and natural child birthdates trigger red warning

I am adding sources and get a red warning banner for every time I edit or
add a source for Maltby-141.  He was a nephew of the his adoptive mother
according to existing profile notes.  Therefore he has a birth date of July
1851, and has a "natural" sister with a birth date of June 1851.  This triggers
the warning because the closeness of the dates.  How should he be listed
to turn off the warning?

I still need to change the LNAB but am waiting to see how to do it.

Presumably he should have both parents flagged as non-biological, in case that makes a difference.

Plan B is to remove the exact birthdate from the box.  Put it in the bio and put an approximation in the box.  Try "about 1851", if that doesn't work, try "about 1850".  Or leave it blank.

Plan C is to connect him as a nephew.
Plan A doesn't make a difference. Same scenario on my tree. I just noted on the "unlisted" profile that he is adopted

Yes I get that also on adopted family member of mine are birthdays are less than 5 months away. At this point there is no way to stop the triggers of the warning to my knowledge unless you was to disconnect him from the family tree and put notes in family members profiles saying he is connected.

If you would like to change the listed LNAB on this profile you would have to adopt the profile you can see that via the profile front page after that you will be listed as the profile manager and the ability to edit LNAB will be available for you
