Following is a response from Senior DHS Stata Specialist, Tom Pullum:

For the early surveys that do not include b16, there is no foolproof way to merge the PR and KR files. You can come close, using the sex and age of the child, but this will not always work, because there are genuine matches in which the age of the child is different in the two files.

Users may be able to suggest something but within DHS we have not found a reliable way to do this.
