My son turned 2 in January and is able to chat in 2 and 3 word sentences, to both children and adults, however he calls me ‘nana’ instead of ‘mama’. We practice good modelling as a family and my husband and I, along with our 6 year old daughter, will correct him, but to no avail. He has the ability to pronounce the ‘M’ sound, eg Moo, Milk, Mine, but when I ask him to say ‘Mmmama’ he replies ‘Mmmnana’. Should I be concerned?
My daughter was saying mama before she was one and speaking clearly by his age, hence the concern (mainly regarding his hearing). My niece who is a year younger than my son is also speaking more clearly.
