I agree with the other ladies. I would not worry about this, I would just enjoy these terms of endearment.. not unless you are worried about a speech problem or something..but other wise not a problem

I agree, as long as your child can say the words Dad and blanket, it doesn't matter if she uses terms of affection forever.

My parents got divorced when I was 6 year old. My dad wasn't around after that, so I never went through the progression of changing from Daddy to Dad. When I speak about him in general conversation with my family I still call him Daddy (I'm 39 y/o). But when I talk about him to others I say "my dad". So it really depends on the circumstances. Hell, I still slept with my teddy bear up til a few years ago.... maybe I have issues... lol ;-P

Why do you ask?

My friend's son called his father 'dada' sometimes at 10 years old. It was just what he'd always called him. There really is no 'age limit' here. My 13 year old daughter sometimes calls her favorite blanket her blankie... nothing wrong w/ it.

If you mean what age can they actually SAY the words correctly.. I would think by 2-3 for the most part.

There's not set age. My daughter is 5 and still calls her blanket blankie.
