      What your baby’s saying at 10 - 12 months

      10 - 12 months: what your baby’s saying

      Learn why their first words may be simple but they can understand more than you think.

      One of the most exciting things you’ll experience around 10 - 12 months is the sound of your baby’s first “real” words! They may not always be what you expect, nor what you’ve taught them!

      You’ll probably have heard these words already. But now your baby starts to make the connection between the word and the object or person and says them with real meaning. Words you can expect to hear are names like ‘mumma’ and ‘dadda’, ‘ju-ju’ for juice and ‘wu-wu’ for dog!
