my son is 8 months and says Mumma now and again although he had said what sounded like dada once! Used to sound like he said Mumma when he was upset and very young but was never sure if I just heard what I wanted to hear lol! x

my daughter started saying dada around 7+ months and associates it with her dada- even says it when she sees a picture of him. she has been saying mama too but doesn't seem to associate it directly with me but it's hard to tell!

my daughter born 3/7/09 started saying ah first when she was 5 months then it was mmma the month after now shes more vocal with ahh for everything she sees and when shes talking to people or the cats at home and mmmama, nnna, ppa and dadadadada, but i notice she does that sometimes when she talking to herself lol...when she started saying mmma i put her palm up to my mouth and repeated mmma mmma so she could feel the sound of the word mama or nana or papa...

my son was only 4 months old when he started saying dada... he didn't say mama until 6 months old - to this day he does not say mama that often, but my husband says that when I'm gone he says mama loud and clear. He is now saying baba and I believe that he is also trying to say bath as well.

Liam said MaMa at 4 months, DaDa at 5 months, and NanNan at 6 months. nothing new since then (he is 8 months) dont worry, every baby is different. He is learning who MumMum and DadDa are, as I learned the other day when he came to me whingey saying DadDa, and I said, hey, you want me, gotta say mummy , and he switched to Mumma straigt away!!

my daughter says mama...no dada and i wish she would soon lol. She said it around 6 months. My son said mama first as well and it was around the same age. There is a myth that if your child says mama first your next child will be a girl and if they say dada first it'll be a boy...like i said my son said mama first and we had a girl and now she says mama first so we'll see lol

My son started saying "kitty" shortly before he turned 7 months, and Dada wasn't far behind at 7 months exactly. Still no sign of Mama, but I know it'll happen eventually. Maybe he just doesn't say it because he knows I'm there whether he calls for me or not.
