  • let their father stay home and raise them while you work. LOL mostly that is why kids pick the one they say first. the parent who is not home as much usualy gets the bonus of the first Momma or Dada.

  • Lol, I would just say mama a lot around my son. He did say mama first as babbling, but I think his first word with meaning was dada. He says both now with meaning, but dada was first. I'm so jealous, lol.

  • I just kept telling my son mama, letting him know who i'am. out of the blue my son started saying mama.
