My little guy is a major babbler too. He said mama mid dec then dada 3 weeks later. He since refuses to say mama anymore! I dunno if he knows I want it badly and thinks i am funny or what. He says ga, nana, and other noises but no mama! Yours will talk when he is ready. My first son didnt talk til 8-9 months either. Now he wont shut up! Also when they are mobile, learning to crawl, eat, ect, they concentrate on that and not speech. My 1st was tested and thats what the therapist said.

Mia is 8.5 months and a total chatterbox like her mummy. Mia said mumum at about 4 moths but only when distressed not with intention. She said dada not long after along with buba and a few other sounds. She said dadad when she's happy with something and she also says nanan but hasn't linked it with anything yet.
She first said mama with intention 2 weeks ago when she was sitting in her high chair and put her arms up at me and said "mumumum" when i walked in the room.
She now says "no no no" and shakes her head or pulls away. We also have 2 cats and Mia can say "ca ca ca" when she sees them and has just started making a "t" sound so hoping she puts them together soon.

Don't worry. June has been pretty advanced in just about everything, but she hasn't had any words. She definitely babbles, and says baba and dada, but they're just sounds, not words by any means. Each to their own time!

Isabella never stops babbling but her only real "words" are mum (which i seem to hear constantly) and dada. some of her main babble sound like words but i know they arent for example.. digga digga, golly golly, ah good good ..thats what they sound like anyway lol its very amusing to listen to

my little girl was a talker from the beginning but i think a lot of that stems from watching her older brother who is a big chatterbox. she says da-da a lot and started at 5 months but she is still working on ma-ma. i talk to my kids a lot - hey, they are the people i see the most of everyday! if you are exposing your child to language i would imagine your little one is absorbing it all.

da-da are my babies first words so far .....such a daddies girl. Look your baby in the face while playing and make the sounds you want him to mimic. Babies are little copy cats so eventually they will repeat what you teach them . That is what we did ...we would hold our baby and say da da da da da lol she would laugh but now when she sees daddy she says da da..... She only says ma ma when she wants to nurse and it sounds more like meh meh haha!

He just started saying "baba" when he's tired now and he wants one. He also started to say mama, dada, and yaya along with other new babbles. But they don't seem to be directed at anything like baba is. It's so cute to hear him when he really gets babbling! Thanks for the comments! :)

Ivy says Da Da. She's been saying it for about a month now. She's just becoming more chatty now. My oldest was always very chatty, and it's difficult to get her to be quiet at 2 1/2. Ivy has a hard time getting a word in edgewise I think :)

Judah is very talkative. He too has babbled alot. He says ma or mama, when he is distressed and army crawls or just holds his arms up for me. He says da, dada or da-dy when he is playing with my husband. He's been saying HI, HEY since about 5 months.

Madelyn has always been a talker...she's babbled a lot from day one...she said mama first when she was 5 months old then dada and baba....she will be 8 months on February 29th and says mama, dada, baba, gaga, boo boo, wawa and screams and babbles a lot...she loves telling huge "stories" :) my nephew however is exactly a year older than her and if I remember correctly he didn't start saying much until he was around 9 months....I talk to my daughter and tell her everything I'm doing while she's awake...we have conversations all day :) and I have since she was born....people look at me like I'm crazy in the stores but she is very advanced and smart and I feel that talking to her all the time helps that out...but every baby is different and some babies just don't have much to say and don't really want to say much..I wouldn't worry about it too much as long as your baby is cooing and babbling and everything....like I said my nephew started late and he is 19 months old now and can say quite a bit and is very smart also :)
