It's probably just paranoia, but hey.. Mom's are pretty good at that. My daughter(Who is now 6) Was saying all sorts of things by 9 and 10 months. She said ice cream, and multiple people's names, and certain favorite objects. And she was only ever really around me (so of course I felt like I must be doing something right) But now my 9 month old son, who is constantly around his sister, his dad, his aunt and uncle, grandparents and myself, as well as my daughters best friend, can only really say DaDa. Everything is dada. He definitely associates it with his dad, but then uses it for everything else too. He has only said mama a handful of times while reaching for me, and it usually comes out as nana. I'm trying really hard to expose him to the attention on words that I gave to my daughter, but am I doing something wrong? Or is he maybe just too distracted by everyone else talking that he just hasn't tried it himself?
