My DD is nearly 6 months and I thought I would post in this section (I hope thats ok??)
Last night when she was crying she was saying "mamamamamama" alot and I thought to myself "Did she just say mama?" but I'm not too sure if that counts. Then today she said it again but it was more of a "mamamama" rather than just mama.
So tell me does this count? haha
And if not when your little one started saying mama/dada?

just after 5 months(maybe 22 weeks old) was mama. has never said dad as he doesnt see him, and we refer to him as his name.

About 6 months it was mamamamama, and always when in distress.
Babababa, (which is what his father is called) came not long after.
We were thrilled. Unfortunately, we were also deluded. They were just sounds.
He didn't actually attach those sounds to us, as individual people, until around 14 moths for Baba and much later for Mama.
Your LO is probably a genius though, and knew exactly what/who she meant , so enjoy it!!

My DS has been saying "maaamaa" since he was 5 months. But I don't count it as I've read that they don't link words to things until around 12 months. But it still makes me stop in my tracks every time he says it!

DS is nearly 11 months and I 'think' he's saying mumma with knowledge of meaning occasionally.
For example I walked into the room when he was facing away, with his dad, and said his name... He said 'mumma' and turned around to face me....
Prior to that I think it was luck, and good early use of constantants...

DD would have started saying mumma and dadda at about 5 months. DS would have been well over 12 months.
Although DS was a lot slower to talk, in the end, they ended up with a very similar level of IQ and achievement. ( they are in their 20s now)

About 5 months, mumuuuuuummmm. Usually when something's not right with his world. I come running way quicker for that than just random babbling, so I think thats how they start learning it means someone. I'm trying to get him to self settle, but he always gets me back in the room with mumum.
He also comes out with mooooore occasionally when feeding which cracks me up, but again I don't think he actually knows what it means.

Well I think I won't count it as her saying mama as she doesn't link it to me. But its still pretty awesome hearing her say it!

My DD is 11 months, and will say bububub, and dadadad while she walks to him, but for the life of me I can't get her to say mumumum.

Vocalising- mama, dada, gaga.....pretty early can't remember when
Saying Mama- meaning specifically me and only when he wants me...about 12 months

DS starts saying dadda at around 7 months but never says mamma.

Mumumumumum just as a sound from before three months. Dad at 6.5 months mum with intent at 7 months and by 8 months nan, 't t' for our dog Ty and ch ch for our bird.

DD says mamma when in distress and 'Mwah' when we're playing. I think because I always say Mwah! Loudly when I kiss her.
Shes saying 'brk' too but I'm not sure what that means.
She's 6 months.
