my baby Love will be six months old in two weeks time... she can now talk some syllables.... her first word? dada, de, daddy (sounds like that).... though i am a bit jealous coz its not mama or mommy, i am very proud because at this early stage she is able to call her dad... and i am soo happy to see my husband's face gleaming everytime he hears our daughter calling him... what a proud father he looks! what was your baby's first word(s)?

I have three kids. The first word of my first child and second child is also dade. I think the sound of M is a little difficult for them compared to D. However my third child spoke the sound of M first so my earlier conclusion is not proven. hehe. :)

It was music to my ears when I heard my child saying the first word as mama. Now at 18 months, my baby can even say mommy like she's a big kid already. She is able to copy words from her brother and sister and I am amazed at how fast she is developing. I am glad to know that you are Filipino too. :)

I think my baby's first word is "didi" or "dede" which means his asking for his milk. He was just barely two or three months at that time when he said that. At first we didn't believe that he was really referring to his milk but whenever he's hungry he says that word together with a loud wail hehehehe. It's still long before he could say "mama". Oh how I really wish his first word would have been "mama" but I have no complains. He's healthy, lively and very witty.:)

My daughters first words were hi there. I was in the habit of every time some one came up looking at her to tell her to tell them "Hi there". A complete stranger almost fell out when she said it to him. It took me by surprise too. She also said "Nina", my sister's name, before she ever said mama.

My daughter first word was dada. He's not around so it didn't really mean nothing. But I read somewhere that the majority of babies first word is dada because it is easier for them to say. She is 21 months now and she still can't talk all that good. She knows how to say a few words, not many, and one of them is mama.

My daughter's first word was Mum, she started out with just mmmmmmmmm, but then it went to Mum & things associated with that & then after a little while she started to say Dad & such. For a while there, she forgot she could even say Mum coz it was just Dad all the time! I think i said Dad first as a baby too but it's got something to do with some kids finding it easier to say the letter 'D' - she'll say Mum eventually.

wow! as a mom it feels so good if you hear your child calls you the first time... :D.... i guess your right saying the sound of "d" is easier that "m".... to add, in filipino, "dede" is similar to asking for a bottle of milk... lol.... thank you for posting
