How long was Jesus in Egypt as a baby?

The bible does not say exactly how long. It does, however, say that they returned at the death of Herod, which was in 4 BC, the same year that we believe to be Jesus's birth year. This means that they must have stayed in Egypt for less than a year. However, the story of the flight into Egypt is probably just a story, written in order to link Jesus to Moses. It probably didn't actually happen. (After all, if all these infants were killed in search of Jesus, then how could the Nazareans be angry with Jesus because he had grown up as just another child?)
