Just a question... my 1 year old loves babbling but he recently started saying a word that sounds a lot like bitch. I don't think that's what he's trying to say, but I can't think of anything else he would be trying to say. When he says it it comes out like "butch" or "bash" or "batch" I'm just wondering if anyone else's toddler says something similar and what it means to your child??? I don't doubt that my son has heard the word bitch before, but it's not like it's used all the time around him. I think he's trying to say something else, but he says it so often that I don't know what it would be. Any suggestions????

I THINK I KNOW WHAT IT IS NOW!!!!! IT JUST DAWNED ON ME!!!! He's been going in the bathroom getting his own toothbrush out of the cupboard (it's the only thing we keep in that cupboard) and I think he's saying "BRUSH" but it's coming out like "beech" or "bash" I always tell him to "brush his teeth" and every day (about 3 or 4 times a day) he gets his toothbrush out and brings it to me to put baby toothpaste on it... he just brought me his tooth brush now and said "beesh" I'll bet it means brush!!! (let's hope so anyway!) :-) Thanks guys for your input!

I don't think it's beach, because we never really say that.... now he's going around saying "baish ba ba-ish, ba ba" he plays with a little "baby" named "Bob" and he always says "ba ba ba ba" when he wants "Bob" so I don't know if his "besh" or "batch" is coming from "ba ba" or not... I don't know. I definitely don't laugh when he says it, I just ignore it.

u should say beach and show him the pictures, wait a while and then say bitch just to c. my lil bro is 7 now but he started talkin around one, his favortie word was bitch, but he pronoounced it bish. so it could be beach or it could b bitch. just run a lil test to b sure. and if it is btich start diciplining him every time he says it so that he knows he should b saying it.

thats probably what he trying to say, so dont laugh. bcz if u laugh ull encourage him to continue to do it. and watch what u say around him so that he doesnt pick up any new words.

That's a good one! He may just like the way its sounds/feels rolling off his tongue! I wish I could help more.
