what was your baby's 1st word?

everyone says they always say "dada" 1st but I'm proud to say my son said "Mama!" lol. he can says baba too.

he has yet to say dada and my husband is a little hurt by it. lol. I'm hoping he'll say it soon.



edit: every time we say "dada" to him he ends up saying "abba abba" so i think that's his word for dada. but technically we're not going to count it until it sounds like dada (or we're really sure that's what it is)



he also just said bye bye today.

My son has always been more of a mover and doesn't seem to have much interest in talking. I was a little concerned because he wasn't even babbling. I said something to my hubby about it around 8 - 8 1/2 months and a couple days later he started babbling a bit. He said mama, dada and baba that first day (I'm not sure which came first). He still doesn't have much to say, unless he is upset, hungry, tired, etc and he says ma ma over and over again. He occasionally says baba and whispers dada.

my daughter's first word was "mama". That was so amazing to hear her say it until she learned to say "dada". Then that is all she would say for months! Her first word was at 6 months old.

I can tell you for sure dada does NOT mean daddy. My baby girl has no daddy and her first word was dada.

Mine hasn't said a word yet. She is just starting to stand on her own for a few seconds then will sit down or fall down on her bottom. I'm hoping the first words are "Momma" since she is always wanting me instead of daddy.

Cael has been saying Baba now for a month or so. And Mama came next...being that the mouth is shaped the same for both M and B sounds. Dada hasn't eventuated yet...I don't think its personal. I keep saying to Greg (husband) that its because he's overseas and Cael is giving him the guilts. Sweet payback and all that.

My son has been saying "mom mom" since he was about 4 months, and he's still calling me that. He just recently has been able to call his daddy "dada". He calls his grandma "mama", he says "unto" for uncle. And he loves to say "no". :)

My eldest said "Mum-mum!" during a visit to the Early Childcare Nurse at 4 1/2 months. Then on Christmas Day said "Dada" for the first time. That's how we woke, my husband was stoked!!

My baby (9 months tomorrow) said "Dada" first. Now says dada, baba, sasa, gaga, kaka, gaka (my eldest thinks she's says gherkin!). She hisses, growls and pretend coughs!

LOL My kid cant talk yet! he just babbles. In fact, I think it's 'early' for 9 month olds to talk, so you should all be quite proud!
