I agree, he sounds fine. If there was something wrong you would see other signs too and the time frame for babbling can really vary, my daughter started babbling at 4 months and you know what? She's almost 19 months old and she still only has a couple of words and she's completely typical. So just because those other babies are babbling (and believe me they are not saying mama and dada, they are probably just saying mamammamam and dadadada to everything.) doesn't mean they are developmentally ahead and it doesn't mean your son is develpmentally behind. If he's social, loves to play, has good eye contact, makes sounds, plays appropriately with toys and all that then he's fine and he'll probably be babbling his head off soon. That being said you can check out the red flags in one of the stickies at the top of this board and if you see anything else that worries you come back and tell us.
