  • My son is all about dada, and doesn't really say mama. I know he can, he has before, but it's a very rare occurence. He's 19 months.

  • My daughter called me by my name, except the beginning with a K, until she was three. Reason why, she spent all her wake hours with grandma. Grandma didn't stop her from calling her "mommy".

  • I was "dada" for the longest time. I don't remember when she finally called me "mama" but it was after 15 months, probably closer to 18 months.

  • My daughter called me "Ma" until she was 3. I felt like an old lady, lol
    She had a lot to say, but she shortened everything for the longest time. My sister has always been called "Nik Nik" by the kids in our family (her name is Nikki) and I am "KoKo" (my name is Korrie)
    When Maggie started talking she called my sister "Nik" my mother "Na" (Nana) and my dad "Scoot" (Scooter.) My grandmother "Maw" (Maw Maw) Just about the only person she would call by full name was MiMi and Daddy....She started calling me "Ma" at 7 months.
