I think she started saying Dada before mama which I didn't quite get as dad was hardly around..but apparently they mostly start by saying dada. She must have been about 9 months at the time. She didn't say mum till much later, maybe 15-20 months They do not stop saying it once they can say it clearly though and you'll start wishing they could stop calling you for just a little bit..

They could make the sounds of mama and dada from about 8 months maybe a bit earlier but actually calling us mummy and daddy (or similair) and knowing what they were doing oooh they had to be at least 12-14 months maybe even a little older youngest was 12 months but her speach is pretty incredible and always has been x

Hi Jaicharu, It's true! a happy feeling every time a baby discovering new things :)My daughter first word is "mamamam" when she was 6 month old. My hubby got a little jeoulous thing because our daughter always saying "mama" when she's crying and needs to be held she always say "mamama", when she looks at me she calls me "mama" when she wants to be fed she say "mama" most of her talk is mama..", but now she can not say "didi" to her dad.. She's now 11 month and more words are added. Thanks Mom! have great day ahead...

well my son...on his 2nd day in this world he is already murmuring..like "ah..ah..or eh..ehh" and he's already curious and started looking each one of us.. He first call me "ineng", i think he's 3 or 4 months..yeah really..it's true...He started to call me "mama" i think when he's 6-7 mos..and now he's 16 mos old he can say a lot of words..like "papa,mami,dadi,tatay"..But still he can't stand on his own and still can't walk..maybe that's why he is verbally advanced..
