Family Matters: First Words


TalkingBetween 8-12 months, your child should say his first word.

“Dada” is a very common one, and while dads are of the utmost important, the “d” consonant blend is very easy to say. So, don’t despair, moms. It’s just the path of least resistance at this point.

My boys had to do things their own way.

My older son’s first word was “light” and my younger son’s was “bird.” Now, the older one talked later, much later, than average, but I have no idea where “bird” came from with the younger one.
During this time, they’ll probably add another word to their vocabulary, babble and make noises all the time.

If your child isn’t talking, don’t worry, but if he’s not much into babbling, just ask your doctor for a quick check-up.

TIP 7-12 months:  Around 12 months, baby can scribble with a crayon. Give him a washable version and some paper, and let him go to town!
