My son said dada first at around 6 months, then started saying mama a little while later, my husband started working third shift and going to school full time so I"m around my son more so now he says mama all the time, I just love hearing him say it =)

Alexie's first word was dada. That is still her favorite thing to say. I sware she likes to tease me. I know she can say mama but only says it on rare occasions. Ba ba is another favorite word of hers. Recently she started saying nite nite when she is over tired. How cool is that.
I am not home fulltime as well. I am actually gone 10 hours a day, five days a week. This is my second child and with my first I remember worrying about her not knowing me as well as my sister-in-law who watched her, but she does. I worried that I would miss all the firsts and I didn't. I did miss some, but I caught her first steps and heard her first word. I am still mama, no one can replace mom even if mom is not there all the time.

Awww, yay! My daughter has started saying mama at 9 months, but I'm not sure if she really associates that word with me. She says it pretty indiscriminately! She babbles so much I wonder if I'll be able to tell when she is making words on purpose. :-)

My 8 month old son said mama first. He said it the first time probably 2 or so months ago. Now he only says it when he's starting to cry lol..He says dada and baba all the time. He's also been doing the N form and saying na na na. (just experimenting with his sounds, I guess. We don't have a "Nana" for any grandma's names-and we only get to see them twice a year). He makes a little motor boat sound too lol..blows raspberries..just started clicking his tongue. My older son who is 3, said dada first. So I'm glad I got a mama first out of my 8 month old :) Especially since everyone says they say dada first!

Both my kids said mama first. My may baby, Rylie, is saying mama constantly and if someone else tries to pick her up, she pitches a fit yelling mama and reaching for me. She is constantly raising her arms up and saying "eh mama eh mama. Mamamamamammaamamammamamamamma" lol. She doesn't say dada to her daddy at all. Every baby is different though. As long as they are making noise, they are on the right track for now!

My daughter started saying mamamamama as babbling at around 6 months but we didn't think she was really saying mama. But we noticed she usually says it if someone else is holding her and she gets fussy so we weren't sure if she knew I was mama.
Anyways, by now we are certain she knows who mama is lol as she calls me a lot. And she calls daddy - baba
Oddly enough she hasn't said the D sound yet
Although she can say R and F and S so it's strange :)
I can't believe my baby is talking! It's too fast! :-(

He does babble in D form. He has not said mama in two days so we will see if he will say it again soon. He has been saying myGrandmothers name Ida that passed away years ago which kind of weird. He looks at my husband and said dada but then looked at his bunny and said dada last night.
About 2 months ago my baby girl said hello, to her little catapillar toy. She then started to tell everyone hello or hi. quickly moved on to saying baba, but the other day she was trying to get down (she pulls herself up but can't get back down) and she was stuck, and she started calling me "mama, mum, mum, mum" the other day she waved to my husband and told him "bye-bye", he's really annoyed that she won't say dada!
