7 months (5 months adjus.)

Postby preemomof2 » Mon Jan 24, 2011 06:14 pm

Hey you guys, haven't been on in a while but have a quick question. Does anyone have a 7 month old (born 27-28ws.) who is saying any type of words?? Me, well, all my little one does is spit, it may be that she likes the vibration her tongue makes but i dnt know. I jus think she should atleast be forming dada or baa or something .. I hear a lot of gurgling but thats it.

The development guidelines from my doctor's office say that they expect "duplicative babbling" like dada or baba by 9 months, so your little one probably isn't behind. I don't remember when mine started babbling, but she is about ten months now and still likes to spit.
