Does your baby make word sounds yet?

My baby is just about 7 months, loves to blow raspberries, and "howl".. but no actual "word" sounds... its that ok?

  • I wouldn't worry about it. Your baby will talk when he/she is ready. I had a friend whose kid didn't talk til he was 2, but his first time was an entire sentence, "I am hungry, mommy". So just because he/she doesn't talk, doesn't mean they aren't learning. They are probably just soaking it all in and processing it. I think it just depends on the baby.
    My baby boy is is 6 months old and making repetitive syllable sounds "hi", "ma" and "da" and "ba". I think he just likes to hear his voice.... not so much understanding what he's saying :D
