At 12months my DD can only really say 'Dada'. She says 'awww' when patting babies to sleep and has said 'Mama' a few times, but doesn't say it to me.

With my first DD, I know she said at least ten words by this age (woof woof, more, car, yum, baby, etc)

So out of interest, what is your little one saying at the moment?

Eeek. My 11.5 month old DD only says "mum", "dad" and "nanna". I didn't realise they should know other words at 1 year old?!

LOL, don't worry JBaby.  My 16 month old DS says only those words, nothing else!

nearly Miss One can say "Mumma", "Ne-ne" (this indicates her sister), "Dadda", "No", "Upupupupu" (this means pick me up), "Top" (this means stop), "Mowa" (this means "more") and did I mention "No", "No", "No", and "No"?

Every baby says different things original.gif

Originally I thought DD2 wasn't saying enough,  and now I realise that DD1 was actually saying too much! laughing2.gif According to the health nurse I saw today,  at 12months most babies say 3 - 5 words.

I'm finding DS has fewer words than DD at the same age too. He says Dada, Dah-dah (for Claudia), Baba (which seems to have numerous meanings), Mama only when he's cranky, and occasionally Rafa wub.gif .

I have a chatterbox on my hands! DD is 13 months, she says Mum, papa, bird, hat, ball, milk, nahhh (no) up, down, nana, popa, after, wow, go and umm ma! She can tell you what a dog says, a duck, a cow and a sheep.

I just filmed her to send to our family overseas and she laughs at herself when she watches it original.gif

Hi Op,

My DS is 14 months and has been saying 'Dada' for a while but only to my DH or about him (ie. In context) for the last few days.  He does say 'Mum-mum' but not to me, just when he is cranky LOL!  But he does undertand a lot and nods or shakes his head to answer questions.

Just an aside, when my other DS was a baby he wasn't  saying 'mum' or 'dad' at 17 months and then he came with 'I want to go outside now'!!!!! And he hasn't stopped talking since LOL!  He also never went through the mispronouciation stage with speaking, he just spoke the words correctly from the beginning.  So I guess what I am saying is, they are all different, but they seem to get there in the end wub.gif wub.gif

DD is 16 months and she only says Mummy, Daddy, Ma (Max her brother), Elmo, car, botbot, cat, yummy and shoe!  I've told DH his credit card could be in for a future hammering due to the last one.  biggrin.gif

Posted 11 April 2012 - 05:57 PM

DD is 11 months old and can say mumma, dada and also daddy, nan-nan, popa, and knows who these people are. She also says heeeyyy (like for hello), nah for no, yeah for yes (like 'did you do a poo?' 'yeah' lol), ba in which she means ta and uses it when she wants something, and also goy which she says when she wants to be picked up and go somewhere.

At 12 months DD said quite a few words, but she would hone in on one word and say it repetitively for a week, then onto the next word next week, and you wouldnt hear the first word again! I think about a month later her speech really improved!
At 12 months she said Mum, Dad, Yes, No, Nanna, Duck, Dog, Cat, grrr (for lion), whee!, Oh-oh, yum, baby, hello, bye and understood them, but you couldnt always guarantee she would say each particular thing if you wanted her to, only if she felt like it.
