What age do babies start talking?

I was just having a conversation, and my threw in something about me telling my dad to get away from my mom when I was 1 and like 8 months or so and so reacted to that saying, "wait how old" because it seemed a bit young for a baby to start talking, but I have no clue.

  • The time baby's talk varies.
    A good majority of babies talk anywhere around 1 year- 2 years.
    I tend to notice that babies who talk early,
    tend to have a older sibling.
    Kids learn from exposure and other kids.

  • It varies but the standard is:
    8-10 months: they imitate sounds
    10-14 months: first word
    10-18 months: random words but no phrases
    16-24 months: they know from 50 to 400 words, including verbs and adjectives
    18-24 months: first phrase (2 words)
    30 months: they learn new words on a daily basis, their phrases now have 3 or more words but their grammar is still bad
    36 months: they know around 1000 words.

  • My baby niece is a little over a year old now. She'll basically repeat anything. But She only knows the meaning of words like baba, mama, simple ones like that. And she'll say "uh oh!" If she drops something. I don't know exactly how long she's been doing this though.

  • Well apparently when I was about 8 months old I said "Hot! Hot! Air conditioner!" Or so goes the story my parents tell me but I would be surprised if the baby was talking at that age.

  • Like around a year they start talking. Around three you can have conversations with them.

  • According to my parents I was 9 months when I first said "mama". I guess it depends on every baby.
