7 month old not saying 'baba', 'mama' etc - help?


Just looking for some advice and reassurance. My little boy is not 'double' babbling yet. He very occasionally makes 'muh-muh' sounds (usually with the assistance of his fist in his mouth, producing a muffled 'm'!), but on the whole his repetoire is about the below:


Aaah-gooo
Ooh-goo
aaaa-luh
aaa-oh
aaaah-gaaa
aaah-guh-gaaa
aaah-waaaa
aaah-buh
aaah-gaaaa-wuh
geeeh
aaah-caa


etc!

Sometimes he makes two consonant sounds like 'gleeh' and 'bwah'. He's been making all these sounds for quite a while now, since before 5 months, but it hasn't seemed to have developed much.

In other words, he's not yet properly repeating consonant and vowel sounds, e.g. 'ga-ga'.

He seems to be reaching his other milestones - he was sitting up before six months and he just started crawling 2 days ago. He started on solids at 6 months and is on 3 meals a day now.
He's a smilely, happy little boy who loves being talked and sung to.

The other things is that he blows raspberries but not how an adult might do it- i.e. he vibrates his lips to produce the sound but doesn't poke out his tongue to make the sounds.

Is anybody else's LO at this stage or is my little boy the only one who hasn't managed 'Mama', 'Dada' and 'gaga' yet? Should I be worrying?

I wouldnt worry too much Lucas is the same. He has never said mama or baba despite me repeat them all to him on a daily basis. He has said dada but not for ages since. He makes lots of other noises but no babbling either.

Maybe they are just concentrating more on the physical milestones as he can sit up unaided now and is on the move. Fingers crossed. x

Samuel is the same - he screeches and babbles but is not saying mama or dada or anything along those lines yet. I have a friend with a 9 1/2 month old who is not either! Personally I am not worrying yet - all babies do things at their own speed :-)

Amazing, thank you everybody!

Obviously it isn't unusual at all I did wonder whether he is so busy enjoying crawling that he doesn't have time to concentrate on babbling.

Guess it's no surprise he's a 'mover' - he was a very kicky baby in the womb, lol!

Our son's first proper word was 8mths and as always 'da-da' followed shortly by 'mum-mahhh'
He was actually crawling about 5 weeks before his first word and walking at 9mths, they are all over the place!
By the time he turned 3 his vocabulary was amazing and since he started school at 5 he has always been the top reader, in year 3 books now (he has just started year one).
They are busy listening, bet once he gets going the nattering will wear you all out...

We have no signs of words, sounds or babling yet - she has just worked out how to blow a kind of raspberry and thats all!

Oh and she isn't crawling yet either, rolling only just happened - by half of the progress reports on here and babies doing so much - my little girl is very slow and a bit backwards lol!
