My ds started to say mamama around that age too but he always turns his lips inwards when he says it he looks so cute.Dh took him swimming the other day and I watched from the balcony and everytime ds looked at me I saw him mouth mamama hes 9.5mths now so maybe he actuatually knows thats me now! Hiya and yeah are another favourite but we havent had a dada yet.

if you can hear mama then he is definitely saying it, that is good and well done to him , my DS said dada first and i was gutted but that is usually the first word cos it's easier to form apparently??

I love these first milestone they hit it's so much fun isn't it?

apparently (sadly for us mums!!) dada is usually one of the first words babis say. Usually because it's easier to say...welldone to those of you who's babies said mamama first..Hope our dd does .

IIRC, DS1's first word was "dog" and DS2's was "duck" - don't know what that says about our family

At aged 8 weeks I wiped DS's chin and he said 'Mgoy' which is Cantonese for 'Thank you'. I was so impressed, not only can he speak, he can speak Chinese, and he's polite. He's never said it again though.

"cack cack" for the noise a duck made at about 10 months.

mamamama at 8 months, closely followed by dada and..........teeth. Bizarre. Now 11mo, he says teeteeteet (tree), bah! when something is tasty and dooey (dog). he very occasionaly says yesh and hi.
Damn cute, isn't it!

DS is 11 months and has been saying muma and dada since he was about 8 months, he can now say nana, no, bag and ta.

Adda were my DS's first words. At 12 months Adda is now Daddy and I am Baarpuff!!

DS was about 5 1/2 months and he said Mama.

DD was later, around 8 months and she said Dada.
