alot of babies speak the way they do because to them it sounds the same :) My son if you listen to him puts the same inflections into words that we do, rises and falls of the pitch of his voice to mimic how we say something... They get more than they let on :)

Baby babble is very common...it's their own little lnguage and way of talking while they're in the processof learning how to talk. Don't worry, you're doing fine at teaching her. So long as you don't use baby talk back she'll naturally pick up on the words! They all learn at their own pace. You can also help her by putting on baby's first words dvd's for her...they're great for while they're in their high chairs eating snacks or while you're cleaning up! I love them!

My DD won't stop talking, but it's all gibberish..I'm also concern that I'm not teaching her right...where is she picking up all these non-sense words and making her own convo out of it? The only words I can pick up from her are "mama" when she wants me, and "uh oh" when she drops something...

My daughter also mostly babbles, although she does say a few words, and also understands some simple phrases. It takes time!

My son, Breydon, says quite a few words, but he uses a lot of signs too. If you has time to listen he has time to talk. He babbles and when you say "What did you say"? he will babble the same thing again. i think he puts his words in a sentence but he just cant get the words to come out.

Alanna says 3 words distinctly- she started saying dad- when she was 7 months then mama when she was 8 months and wolf- wolf- for our 3 dogs a few months ago- she runs around- mom-mom- or dada continuously- and na-na- and mumbles a lot- so i think other words are soon to follow:)

Our daughter can say many words like moma, nana, dada, apple, juice, spongebob (big one I know but he's her favorite), etc. And she can form sentences when she wants to. But her dad is her primary care giver so he teaches her new words everyday. I've also been having her watch the Leap Frog DVD's that teach words and letters. Since then she's gotten much better with her speach.

My son also babbles, he will say ma-ma and da-da but other than that...it's a language all his own. Our daughters were very vocal and talkers from an early age, just remember they all do things at their own pace and he will take off in no time! :) I think half the time our son doesn't talk because his two big sisters anticipate his every need, so he doesn't have to vocalize...very challenging to get them to stop so he will talk! LOL

My daughter says mom and she knows the meaning, well, she knows its a word that is meant for me because she reaches for me when she says it. She knows dad, but only when she has to say it LOL when he's being a turd to her she has many times said "DAD!"

She says "EYES" and points to our eyes (thanks to spending 2 days with my mother!) and she sais "Pup" and points to animals..lol



She was born Dec 25th, 08



Oh she also says "WOW!" with her mouth in an O shape its so funny!

My 15 month old says "momma" when he is upset, 'dada" when he is happy (to anyone) and "ow". He babbles a lot and makes the cutest hand gestures, like waving "bye" and shrugging.

Eli says a few words, but like most said nothing too extraordinary. He can say Mama, Dadda, Miyah, stop, and he loves to say HUH! Anytime we say his name, he will reply with HUH. LOL

Anyone noticed how the girls seem to be outsripping the boys here? They do say that girls often start talking earlier than boys - clearly starting as we mean to go on!
I too have a babbling boy, constantly chattering but not a lot of comprehensible stuff, just Mamma and Dadda and Nana, and still the little traitor says more Dadas than Mammas!

my son was born 24 dec 08. he started talking when he turned one. and now, hes a little chatter box. my husbands family are italian speakers and the paternal grandparents only speak to him in italian. he comprehends them and will act upon instructions given to him by them and that goes with english too. he says mama and papa, his newborn sisters name (aliya). he imitates his grandparents by grabbing a mobile phone and has a monologue with himself. Its all mostly gibberish and a string of words he knows.

My daughter talks a lot too. she is even starting to put small sentences together, like "we go" or "who is it" stuff like that. Crazy how fast they grow! I wouldn't worry till he's older, like 16mo. some babies just dont feel a need to talk. I have a niece like that, she didn't start talking much till almost 18mo and still rarely talks and shes just over 2. but when she thinks no one is listening you can hear her talking to her dolls over her baby moniter. lol. Maybe he will be stubborn too. :-)

well if you think about it girls are more verbal so, they are more likely to talk or develop verbal skills before boys on average. my son says a few words but its not very clear but i know what he means by the key sounds and the context like thank you is tanku. girls are communicators, my daughter was saying alot by the time of her first bday, olle had tubes and then he started speaking more clearly but he does express himself more with motion and physical activity. but i would listen and see if you hear a sound that is repetitive and ask him to say it again and he could very well be saying something and just not able to annuciate that sound yet..if not his babbling is how it all starts...in one day it could all click, at this age week to week, everything changes so fast, youll laugh when you think back about how worried you get about something.

my son talks ALL THE TIME! But I attribute it to his big brother. Noah says a TON of words and definitely lets me know when he wants something. Eli (my oldest) didn't talk much until he was about 18 months-and then it was just words not really sentences. But when he did start talking...he hasn't ever stopped. He even talks in his sleep!!!!

Kaya says about 60 words including English and Chuukese. She only puts a few together though, like "all done" and "happy birthday". I read that boys tend to be a little slower at picking up language than girls, though, so don't worry. By 13 months, only 7% of boys could say more than 10 words, according to a BabyCenter poll.

I didnt realize it until recently that some of the "babbling" my daughter was doing, were actually words. She says Ma (for mama), Da (for dada), Hi, Bye, she says "dow" when she wants to be picked up or put down, and she also day "t" for kitty. When I show her something and say what it is, she will repeat it, in her own way...theyre still so young though. Everything else she has learned seemed to happen over night, so Im sure the talking thing will come before we know it!

Domanic (12-16-08) can say some words like-

mom, dad, ball, dog, that, here, thank you, cookie, baby, bye, my, uh-oh, no, nana, anna, night night, there

mostly he just enjoys babbling on in his own little baby talk...every baby learns at their own time. Although my son may not talk as much as other babies, I know he understands and that he'll eventually learn. Right now enjoy the peace of comfort of not completely understanding what's being said...soon we'll all be asking our little ones to please be quiet for a minute...lol

My little one says quite a few words like mamma, daddy, iz, jake, bus, lorry things like this, but he can not put a sentence together. He does babbles things, but we haven't a clue what he says bless him. Hang in there he will start talking when he is ready.

When my daughter Chloe was 10 months old I must have spent her whole bath time one day trying to teach her to say 'Duck" but she wouldn't. That night when we were driving to the store and I was busy talking to a friend she sat in the back seat saying "Duck... Duck..." Go figure!

Kathryn babbles like there's no tomorrow, but I'm not sure she has said her first word. When Daddy comes home, we always say "Look, it's Daddy! Hi Daddy!". She'll repeat "dadadadadad" but we have no idea if she's put two and two together as yet. But as they always say, each little person discovers things in their own time and in their own way.

My son says DaDa, daddy, dad,mama every once in awhile, whats this, yes, no, and hi. Sometimes he will say kitty,and dog dog dog. So he is talking a lot compared to other kids he's around. He's starting to repeat things,randomly. He ask what's this a lot. I wish he would say mama more, but when I ask him to he just laughs at me and says dada.

My son Blake will only say DADA and sometimes mama. But when asked to say them he laughs at us. I think maybe it is a stubborness thing right now. Or he is just too busy investigating everything and knocking everything over, that he is too busy to worry about words. Plus he is the youngest out of 3 although they are all 3 years and younger. Is your son the first? Or only child? ect? My oldest also didn't start using words until a little later as well. All in all i think all kids are different and do things at thier own pace. If he is using hand gestures like you said, and smiling and interacting, then i would say you have nothing to worry about.

My son, Charlie is 14 months old (xmas eve 08) and he has been talking for quite awhile now. He says around 40-50 words now and has been able to form sentences for several months too. His favourite sentence was "daddy did it" - poor da got blamed for everything even when he wasn't around lol. He now says "what you doing?" and "are you okay?"

His latest words over the last month have been "car, star, sex (made his big bro very happy) and a multitude of others.

The only word my daughter says is Momma. she can say dadda, she just doesn't. she's great at pointing things out when you say "Where is ...." She just isn't saying anything yet.
