View Full Version : Speech starts at what age?
Hello :wave: For the 5th time, If this thread doesnt work this tim im giving up!
Little G is almost 5 months old. He has started to make speech like sounds so clear you'd believe he had been talking for months.
First time He pushed to bottle away when Jase was feeding him and made the sound of "Daddy no"...We both heard it clear as day.
Second time Jase was putting him into bed and G looked straight at him and made the sound of "dad".
I know these were flukes - But Heck - They sounded so real!
All this has prompted us to wonder...
At what age to babies start to talk?
I was at kindermusik yesterday and the teacher asked me how old Eliza was as she says's mama very clear she also says dada and baba to my DP she also says kiss which sounds more like kisshh and tries to kiss you she's 6.5 months she started saying mama dada at around 5 months but all babies start yacking on with vowels at that age they don't associate it with the person/thing though. Lately though Eliza reaches out for my DP saying Dada and then as soon as he has her she reaches out for me saying ma ma lol
Lol - he he he...
I talked to my mum about what he said - she think im trying to make him grow up quick...
I do realise it was a fluke.... It was just so clear!!
My friends little girl was saying about half a dozen words clearly at 7mths. I was in total shock about it.
DD is saying mama dada buba and gaga as clear as day and she started saying that around 5 months old
DS was saying dada, baba, gaga at 5 months as well :)
He has his whole yibber feast all the time... just aahhhhhhh and ooooohhh and wwweeee and such... But lately he trys real hard to mimick words we say...
And the kisses too - he trys to mimick them!
ohh yes now every morning we get hugs and kiss's and she has started to hand us her toys when she's playing with them back and forth we go lol:D:rolleyes:
he he he he...
G understands words and such - We tell him up and he straightens his legs to stand. We say "do you want us to pick you up?" and out stretch our arms, and he puts out his...
I know he is clever - how can i encourage more of this to help with with his speech?
Summer started saying dada at 5 months as well ;)
It's so gorgeous when they start blabbering on isn't it :D
My DS son saying "what's that?", "who's that?", "what is it?" at around 10mths.... People didn't believe us when we first told them that he was stringing words together until they actually heard it for themselves.
His first word was Dad or Dada and then came the famous "what is it?" sentence that he still says one hundred times a day and he is now almost 16mths. He waffles so much gooblydock but is still yet to come away with anymore words. I even struggle to get Mum out of him (it's usually when he's tired or sick).
I thought that he was going to be a really early talker however the words seem to have slowed down, maybe he jumped the gun with his sentence and now decided that's enough for the time being, lol!
At around 10-12 months Porsha started saying things like 'whats that', 'whos that', 'woof', 'whatzz up?' (DF taught her that one...she sticks her tounge a-la how they do it in the commercial).
However, I am yet to hear her say mum!
My DD said her first word the day she turned 7 months old - "Bub". The following day started saying "Dad" and then about a fortnight later started to say "Mum".
She has only started to say them in context in the last week or so (so pretty much since she turned 8 months). For example; she'll be tired and wanting to be boobed off to sleep but daddy is holding her, she'll reach out to me and say "Mum-mum-mum". Or she'll be in bed going off to sleep and roll over for her cuddle with daddy and he's not there, she'll open her eyes, look around and call "Dad-dad-dad" until he comes and snuggles her.
It's the most beautiful thing when you know that your baby understands it all and is calling out to you:yes: :hugs:
DD is 6 months old and she says "bububububububub" and "mamamamama".. you get the deal. Last week, my husband and I SWORE we heard her say "pink", but thats probably just a fluke.
This week she's said something that reeeeally resemble "heylo" (hello)...
