More of a curiosity question really, how old was everyone's LO when they said their first word? DD is nearly 8mo and still not babbling many consonants, no mummummum etc. She seems to have slowed with her talking and hasn't really brought out any new sounds for a couple of months. She has all vowels but few consonants just g and h really (she hums mmmm while eating but only then.)
I know all babies develop at their own pace and I'm not stressed, just curious.

DS said mum a at 6 months and by 12 months could only say daddy, mumma, bubba and nanny but from about 14 months his words just came , 18 months he was putting 2 words together and now at 23 months he sings songs, talks in full sentences and repeats everything!

DD was about 7 months old when she started talking, her first word was "hello"! Then came the usual mama, dada etc, then "toopa" for our dog Cooper and "clodo" for the other dog Chloe.

Katelyn said bubble and hello at 3 months. Lol. Totally by chance while babbling but we had "omg did you hear that?!?!"
She's 6 months and does lots of "Ahbahbahbah" "Ararara" and "umumumumum" babble so jasper says "she wants you mummy"and mmms when shes eating! So cute! Shes doing like a horsery "pff" with her lips puffing out air that she seems to think is impressive and then the rest of the time she just squeals and screams. Her grizzly talk is "a-row-row-row-row-row" means shes tired.

I couldn't tell you what DS's first word was, he said nothing at all till about 22 months then he pretty much just started coming out with sentences.

DD is 7 months tomorrow and she has just started saying some constants but not words.
She goes through phases. She will babble and coo for a week or so then nothing for 4 weeks.
I think it's normal that they seem to start saying something new and almost go backwards again.

DD started with dad at 7 months then did the mum, bub, nan then stopped talking and didnt start again till 3.5 after years of therapy
DS said Mum at 11 weeks old, other people heard it so I knew I wasn't crazy. LOL
He is now 2.5 and speech is average says around 100 or so words and puts 2-3 together. You can't have a conversation with him, but you can ask him questions and he will answer.
