“einen Tag alt” – Why is it “einen” not “ein”?

I’m studying numbers and age expressions, and here is the sentence I don’t understand: > Dieses Baby ist einen Tag alt. I thought *ein Tag* is right but it wasn’t. Why? I assumed that because I think that *ein Jahr* is in nominative here: > Sie ist ein Jahr alt.
