My son is Ten months old and knows how to say a few words. He knows to call me mama and his father dada, and just learned to say Hello verbally. But those who haven't heard him say it, can't believe it. Any other mom out there whom’s baby is talking/saying words and know what it means?

OH dear!!! I only get a whole lot of babble! mumumumum and dadadadad and bub-bub and a whole lot of talking which means heaps to him, as he often giggles to himself. I hope the fact he isn't saying all those things doesn't mean there is a problem...

My daughter was born May 3, 2009 She has been saying dada and mama since she was 5 monthsish, but since 9/10 months has said Dadt(she puts a t sound to it haha) and Mom. My daughter started at 10 months saying hello and hi Duck, dog, ball! She started closer to 11 months saying Papa (my dad) and Nana (my mom), and bye. She has also been saying Whats that? since 10 months. She tries to say bubbles. My daughter signs more, hi and bye, food, and that is about it. We started baby signing when she was first born and she has obviously preferred to speak as oppose to signing. We still do signs with her, as she will one day appreciate it, and maybe in her toddler years will find it easier to sign or sign and talk.

yes, my DS said "hi, momma" to me when I went to take him out of the crib the other morning. He's also said "I go" when trying to crawl on my lap. he says dada, more, again and "ooga" for my older DS, Luke. He's always talking to me, and I have no idea what he's saying but sometimes I can catch something. I guess that makes up for the teeth JUST deciding to show up this week.

My daughter was 11months yesterday, she can say (& know the meaning) Mama, Tata, deda, Baba, Be-be, Batz, uh-oh, je-je, Hiiiiiii & Tank-you. The reason those words sound off to some of you is because we are teaching her to speak 2 languages - Czech & English. So far so good - atleast that's how I learned. The other night while we were bathing her I put some bubbles in her bath and we kept repeating the word bubbles to her - and suddenly out of know where she said the word perfectly! We we in shock, it was amazing!

My son is 10 months and says the following: Mum, Dada, Gruhgruh (Grammy), dog/doggy, cat/kitty, duck, quack, book, up, "go car", luhluhbuh (lulluby - he sings it like the song), baba (bottle), head, hi/hello, dis (this), shakes head no and nods yes...when he can't say a word - he mouths is over and over till he can do it! Like with "quack" for the longest time he would move his mouth when we would say quack - we called it the "silent quack" Then one day out came the word!

Yes, mine says mama, dada, baby, hi, bye-bye, yeah, hey!, doggy. He knows the word kitty but hasn't said it correctly yet, that's a hard word I think. He'll be 1 at the very end of May.

My son is 11 months and says Mama and Dada and the beginning few letters of some words: Da for dog, Moo for moon, etc. But he knows and uses sign language for about seven things (milk, more, cheese, book, finished, come, drink, eat), which makes life less frustrating for all of us!

Mum,dad,bub,nana,jay,dora,yes,no,dog,cat,more,poo,hello and bye. all kids progress at different stages, its just up to them. he will learn in time :) so try not to worry. my little girl is advanced though, had to have numerous tests done. but in other areas she is still a bit behind but that doesnt bother me. try not to worry, as i said, alot of kids take their time, then all of a sudden, boom, you cant stop them talking :)

Kim no worries! All babies develop differently! I have twin little girl who were born on May 1st and only make the dada sound that I actually count as talking, but I don't think they even know what they are saying. It will come in time! No worries!

My Daughter is now 11 months and she is saying mama, dada, hello, bar ba, when the phone rings she says hi, oh. She is too intelligent for her age. If someone tells her hello she waves her hands to say hi.

My daughter was born May 29th. She says Dada, and sometimes Mama. Everything else is babble. She claps for herself all the time (so cute). She is also walking, so i guess the talking will come when shes ready.

My son will be 1 on May 15th and he has said dada and mama like a few times, dada more than mama, but he mostly just says bubba (for brother) now and uses it correctly most times. We work with him all the time with mama and dada and he just laughs at us. he says uh-oh and a few other sounds and will mimic a lot of sounds. I'm not to worried, except my first was speech delayed, and we always worked with him and read to him as well. I hope he's just being stubborn and only wants to say things when he wants. LOL

My Evie knows how to say, mama, dada, bababa (Bottle), bubba (her brother), papa (grandpa) and uh oh. It's refreshing to hear her talk so early since her brother didn't start talking until he was almost 2.

My Son was born May 28th and is such a character. He said 'daddy' properly few day ago and pointed at his dad same time. I almost fell of my chair! Otherwise he says 'dada' when he is playing and 'mama' when he is upset. He also says 'there' and points. Oh, and he wispers when the lights are turned off. ;)

My 11-month old daughter can say Mummy, Daddy, bath, bubble, cuddle, ta, hello and bye bye. We've been really surprised that she's saying words this early (and in context)! She's our 3rd daughter, and our older daughters didn't say any words apart from Mama and Dada until 14 months. But by 18 months, they'd each learnt to say between 280 - 320 words!

My daughter turns one May 7th. She says Mamma & Dadda correctly, says baby and points to her doll or the flashcard baby. Shes says buhbye and doggie. We have 3 dogs so she knows that one pretty well. Whenever she sees a dog she'll say it too. My friend had a baby on the 18th of april so her lil one is a lil older and i had asked her if her daughter was talking yet and she said babies dont talk til 18 months which isn't true. Every baby walks talks and everything else on their own time!! Oh and she def. has her own language which is hilarious to hear :)

My son doesn't say much either and he will be a year may 7th. They say often girls talk sooner but it all depends. My son say's Dada, Baby ( but does he know what it means?) and Baba. That is it but he deffinetly talks all the time in his own language.

My little girl isn't saying any words yet, she babbles 'mama' and 'hiya' but really it's just noise she's not talking. She does understand when you say simple things to her and she can sign a handful of words (which I was told was meant to help them talk sooner! not in her case lol)

To everyone else who's baby isn't talking yet, don't worry! It's not unusual and they will get there when they are ready :)

My daughter will be 1 on May 12th. She has been saying mama, dada and dad (with a T on the end) since she was 8 months but she is just now understanding what they mean and who they refer to. She also says "hi, hey, and hot". She knows what hi and hey mean but not hot. We always clap for her and say "good job" when she does something good so now whenever somebody says "good job" she claps. It's adorable.

My son was born on 18th May and says mumma, da da, ta ta, pa pa, na na kind of words. It really sound wonderful to hear such words from him. But he understand many words such as look towards fan, AC, lights, TV if we ask him where is the fan, AC etc.?

My 10 month old daughter says NOTHING. Not "mamma" or "dadda". I'm worried. My twins (now 7 yrs old) were saying so much at this age. I will be mentioning this at her next doc appointment.

My daughter was born on May 25, and she says mom or mommy, dada, boo (and plays peek-a-boo with a blanket), bye (and waves), hi, 'men (and folds her hands for prayer), kitty (for our cat, but all other animals are kitty too), and she says "sock" the way her sisters say "sock". I think it helps that she has twin 2-year-old sisters that talk all the time.

No, no problem. I was waiting for someone like you to post something like that. My son will be a year on May 3 and he just started saying dahdahdahdah. No mama yet and i thought the other day he tried to say bubba. That's it besides giggling and sounds. So, I think we're fine :)

yes, my little guy just turned 11 months but about 3 weeks ago started chatting it up. He's like a little parrot saying things we almost cant even imagine (ie. do dat-do that, awh da-all done, dah-stop too funny) sounds like hes an early talker or at least thats what my friend who is a speech therapist said. Keep up the good work and bring on the chatting....lol
