Babies: 6 - 9 Months

At 8mos what is your LO saying?

Just curious what other 8 month olds are saying.  We have mama, dada, and lot's of other sounds but not really any other words.

Re: At 8mos what is your LO saying?

  • A whole lot of babbling. No distinct words.

    Thank maude I haven't read a single book this time around. Apparently, something has led you to believe your LO should be saying words at 8 months??

  • Nothing.  He razzes and grunts and that's about it.

  • I'm jealous you're getting mama! So far we've gotten dada and baba a lot. There have been a few things that she says and we look at each other and go, no way...that didn't happen. We must be hearing things!

  • We get Dada a lot although she says it all the time and not in specific reference to her daddy.

    Mainly it's all gibberish at this point. Add in a few random shrieks and that about sums it up.

  • You're kidding, right?   We get some babbling and once he said "dada" which happened to be while dada was in the room so clearly he knows what he's saying!  He also said "hi" once.  My mother thinks he's brilliant!
  • I'm so glad no one is in here saying stuff like 'ball' and 'dog' and 'milk' because I would totally be calling bullsh*t.

    We get mamamama although it isn't actually in reference to me, a one time dada that I think was totally an accident and a whole lot of screeching and babbling.

  • That makes me feel better.  We have a little friend that is 4 weeks younger than our LO and she is saying bye bye (complete with wave), mama, dada, and banana.  My biggest fear having kids was that I wouldn't do the right things with them so they will develop properly.

    A 7 month old says banana? Have you heard this yourself? I am highly skeptical.

  • Geesh - my DS just discovered consonants. Before is was just aaaaaaooooou. Now (as of 2 days ago) we have a little bit of babababa - but it certainly isn't directed at anyone. He hasn't put words together with things at all.

    Ditto- just bc a baby says these syllables doesn't mean they know what they're saying!! People need to calm down, there's no reason to expect babies this young to be saying anything.

  • Yeah, she's not even saying consonant sounds.  Her dr said babbling (w/consonants) is a 9 month milestone.

  • A turns 8 months today and has been babbling a lot... she says a lot of "mum mum mum" and "da da da" but I know she doesn't associate it with us yet.

  • Just babbling and the occasional dada (not in connection with daddy). Although, I swear he has said and knows the word "hi" for a long time. DH and I have both heard him repeat it after we say it numerous times since he was tiny like 5 months and honestly...it's weird.

  • Yeah, I was going to say nothing. He babbles. It's adorable, and I love it, but it's not speaking. Plenty of time for that!

    DD says mama, dada, baba and other than that, loves to scream a lot :)

    My 10 month old niece just learned how to say baby and says it very clear. Show off!!! Stick out tongue

  • We have Mama Dada and Byebye HOWEVER I am in no way convinced she knows what she is saying anymore than it just being totally convenient for the moment she says it lol! I think at this point a lot of real words (or what some parents think they are) are just super convenient noises that could also be 10 different "words". I suppose it isnt impossible for real words at this age, just not the average child.

  • She has been saying dada and mama for a while now and recently starting saying baba. Other than that, just a whole lot of babbling.

  • DD says Dada and Mama and Hey (when waving)! She also says nana which I think may become no because she says it after someone tells her no or once when she didn't want to lie down for a diaper change which caught me off guard but I'm still not convinced that she's saying no yet. She also says Baba while babbling but not to anything specific. She is definetly gonna be a talker like her dad :)

  • At 6 mnths he started saying mama and dada, 7 or so he started with nana and baba and others. now at 8mths he just screams everything lol. And he makes a ticking sound.
  • So much! I seriously can't believe it. DH and I were just talking about how we must have the smartest LO ever. Here are the words that he's saying right now that I'm just thinking of off the top of my head. (I know there are more, but this is just off the top of my head...):

    - viscid 

    - herniated

    - agoraphobia 

    - insource (sometimes he'll say "outsource" too, but that's only if he's really p!ssed off)

    - kerfuffle

    - humbug

    - mockery

    - antagonist 

    - ambivalent 

    - ambrosia

    - scallywag (wtf)

    - TI-82 (he's sort of a math guy) 

    Anyway, sorry to post and run, but I can't possibly list EVERYTHING he's saying at 8 months old.

  • Take everything you hear with a grain of salt.....my friend who has a just turned 5 month old says, he says "mama". My DS is of course not talking because he is only 6 months, but it does amaze me how some can over-exaggerate what their children are doing/saying/milestones.  Rolling over is another big one...the 5 month old talker also was rolling at 2.5wks old. Wowsers....

    Pretty colorful vocab there, my babies say a couple of these words and they also know the name of ALL the presidents, and they can count up to 50 :)

    Tchaikovsky, actually.

    DS has never been a fan of Mozart. He abhors the way Mozart terribly mismanaged his finances.

    DS is mildly impressed by this. He's got a bit of a competitive streak. I'd make sure your babies aren't out after dark alone. DS has a strange fascination with Tonya Harding. I don't really want to imagine where this could go.
