We have a child and he was born January 29, 2018. I am under the impression that he counts as a dependent for the previous year, but TurboTax won't accept his birthdate.

If he was born in 2018, he is not considered a dependent. In order to be considered a dependent he would have to be born before December 31, 2017.
