Any other lesbians who had their baby learn to say dad first? In spite of never hearing the word Peanut is stumbling upon it. We keep practicing mama  and she’s also close to saying good but clearly she’s stumbled on the d sound more. Lol

    The “da” sound is the easiest noise both physically with their mouths and developmentally with their baby brains. We know those sounds to be Dada like “father” but babies just know they’ve made a noise. When she says “mamama” which usually happens soon after “dadada” it’ll be your reaction that teaches her “yes, good, this is what you call me with these baby noises”. 🙂

    Yes, that was her first “word”, which wasn’t really a word to her at all since it had no meaning to her. It’s just the easiest thing for babies to say!

    Exactly what they said. It’s the easiest shape for their mouths to form, so they usually start with with…they don’t know what it means unless you give the word power…
