    Default First words?

    What was your child's first words, and how old were they?
    I an eagerly awaiting DS's first words, am curious of the average age and word content...

    mishh, my DS is 15 months and doesn't say much at all. he says ta ta for goodbye, ta for thanks (confusing sometimes lol), mum, dad and nanna (I think). He understands a lot more so I guess it'll happen eventually.

    Same with my DS, he is nearly 15 months and only says about 5 words. Although last night he did say "hi dadda", was very cute.

    First word was mama around 9months.

    Yeah DS was a babbler so real words took a while, can't remember off hand exactly when it was, it's written in the book. But I think the first one was "bub". I do remember mum was before dad though!!
    But now 17 months he says so much with new words every day! The lastest is "la-la-na" which is banana

    First words were mum at about 9 months, dad a few months later and duck at 13/14 months. Not much more till just recently (17 months) and he comes out with new words daily.
