My son said Dada first at around 10 months and Mama at around 11 months. He never babbled! he was a quiet baby. He's 2 1/2 now and has a very large vocabulary but he is a little unclear still at least to everyone else aside from me. I know what he's saying about 90% of the time.
My daughter has been babbling since she was 4 months. She's a talker that's for sure! She started saying Mama when she was hungry at 6 months. But now at almost 10 months she hasn't said it for a few months. She says "Ga DA!" when she's finished a bottle. I think in baby language it means "all done". She also started repeating "bababa"s and "dadada"s back to you. She's a noisy girl it's so cute :)

My son is just gone 9 months and has been saying mum mum for about a month now (although I am not sure he is referring to me although he seems to say it when he cries for a bottle). Totally opposite to you I heard the first dada last weekend which I am thrilled about because his dad looks after him during the day and it would be really nice for him to hear dada!

My daughter's 10 1/2 months, and she can say A LOT of words. However, her social skills were faster than the normal. (Smiling, talking, etc) However, her motor skills are slower than the norm. She started saying dada by 5 months, and mama around 7 months(a lot of time she says naanaa. She has trouble getting the "m" sound. She looks right at me puts her arms up and says naanaa, that's how we can tell she's trying to say mama). Now she can say: dada, mama, grandma, grandpa, hi, bye bye, all done, cat (she usually says it with a "t"), Simba (which is the cat. She says that with a t also. She says Timba). She can say a few other words, but I can't think of them right now. All babies develope differently. Usually a baby will be quick in a certain area, but slower in another area. I've heard of 1 1/2- 2 yr olds not saying much. My neice, whose almost 17 months, doesn't say as many words as my daughter, whose almost 11 months. I wouldn't worry. Just keep talking to him, and he'll get it. We talk to our daughter a lot, and within the past week, she tries to repeat everything we say. Granted, it's not all clear, but it's the same syllables, and it's right after we say something, so we can tell that she's trying.

HE watchs baby einstein and your baby can read everyday since he was about 4 months old. He was doing well then the progress reverted. I am going to call about a hearing screening today and go from there.

he will start to talk when he is ready. my daughter started early, i have her watch sesame street and elmos world and such that encourage talking. after about a year and a half if he isnt talking he may need speech therapy. all children are different

D-sounds and B-sounds generally come before M's and N's. My first said "mama" around 11 months and she was pretty quick linguistically.

at 9 months she said dada, I believe right before she was 10 months she started saying mama (infrequently).

My daughter will be 9 months at the end of the month. She started saying mom mom mom about 2 months ago. She can also say dada, nana, and baba.
I have other friends who's babies are older and aren't saying mom yet, don't worry it will happen.
