Can we not add deceased children who are not our children?

I'm trying to add my nephew, who passed away at birth. It keeps giving me an error that I cannot add a child under 13... But he's deceased...

If this is the child of someone living, then I would assume that only the parent can make the addition.

Even though the child is deceased, though? I was able to add her deceased daughter, who passed in 2005, but not her deceased son, who passed in 2013.
I have added the privacy tag to your question so that someone who knows more about how the restrictions are set up can see it and respond.
When did you add the deceased daughter? Was it before 25 May 2018? (in which case of course you could).
I added her yesterday, she was born in 2003 though. I guess my point though, is that I thought if the person was deceased it didn't matter how old they were?
So, if she had lived, she would be 15 i.e. over 13.  Would the nephew be over 13 if he had lived?
No he would not. But if he’s deceased, I’m a bit confused as to why it matters?
It matters because the parents should be the ones to decide whether or not they want this information to be posted.
