Is anyone elses baby NOT babbling yet? Ava screams, but still doesn't combine any sounds. She's a pretty quiet baby when she's happily entertained, she only screams when she's getting bored.

Summer does say mamamamama but that's it. I think I've heard her mumbling a little once, other then that no really babbling sounds yet. And she SCREAMS when she's excited, it's kinda cute!

Learned this trick from Doc's old speech therapist. When she talks and does her ahhhs and oooohs tap upwards under her chin. It will force her to babble, realize that she can move her mouth in all kinds of ways and crack her up. Babbling all comes down to throat and mouth control. Usually once a baby gets that control they'll start experimenting on their own but some need a push. Don't forget to babble at her too. Pop your lips, click your tongue, say, "Babababa. Dadadadada." She'll start copying you.

Connor combines lots of sounds but he doesn't do it all the time. He experiments with his voice all the time but I don't know if he's really babbling exactly. He has said mama a few times when he's upset and he said da da once. Often I only hear him make one sound without repeating it, like ma, da, ga, goo, etc.

Michaela only combines sounds occasionally...she certainly doesn't babble all the time and nor has she said anything that sounds like a word yet.

Thanks for the tip, Missa! I'm going to try that.

Emmett used to be a big talker but then traded that for being more mobile. He clicks and coos but doesn't really babble. I think he's just busy focusing on other milestones.

Interesting. Where exactly under the chin? Towards the mouth?

As far as M goes, she's mostly just oohing, aging, making really weird sounds. She does mmamaa in occasion, and she will mumble. But no bababas, gagagas, etc. yet.

My Ped also said if their working on a new skill, they will tend to be more quiet.

Oz is 7.5 months and just let out his first babbles on the weekend of March 8th - 9th. It was bababba and he now does dadadad and mamama.

Just right under the edge of their chin so their jaw goes up. Gently of course. Makes them laugh because it sounds funny and they realize that they can move their jaw and funny sounds pop out. And I echo what everybody else said, a baby who's focused on being mobile is usually quiet and vice versa. They tend to focus on one thing at a time. Paxton babbled but didn't even attempt to crawl. Now that he's trying to crawl he rarely babbles. Does she have teeth yet? Teeth make a baby babble because they're feeling around in there to figure out what the heck is in their mouth so they explore with their tongues. I'm pretty sure you said Ava didn't get a paci until sleepy time which is good because sucking a paci all day hinders mouth exploration and vocalization. She'll do it. Don't worry.

She's not working on being mobile either. Lazy baby. No teeth, no paci except to fall asleep, she might use it 30 minutes a day, total.

No babbling here. But a very happy baby! I looked back in my son's baby book and his first babble "dada" was in month 8, which we will just hit in two days.
