My son has been saying "dadadada" for weeks now. I do not consider it to be his way of saying "Daddy" because he has never known his father (he died) and he can't possibly hear that word enough to be saying it. I could understand if he said it anytime a picture of his father was placed in front of him but he can be doing anything and will throw in "dadada" in with other baby chatter. Now when he said "cat" a couple of days ago he was looking at her with intent and everytime he has said it since he has been looking at either our cat or a cat on a video of his. I have heard that "da-da" is usually a baby's first word because the sylables are easy to say or it is just baby talk that is misunderstood for "daddy." It takes a lot more effort to say "mama." What do you think? When your child said "da-da" did you know for sure it meant "Daddy?"
