Omg I’d be thrilled if I found out this was my baby’s first word, even if I wasn’t there to witness it. Could rub that in dh’s face forever 😂

Agree with PPs, just bc he said it doesn’t mean he thought the nanny was his mom.

Also, “I did call my husband and ask him to tell her not to do that in the future.” — Could you talk to her about it? Is there a reason why your dh has to do it…?

it’s okay BEE, i know it feels awful to miss such a memorable moment. But the word MAMA is basically every baby’s first word. Although you were not there to hear it, your baby knows exactly who’s the mother and i think your nanny should let you hear the word yourself, let alone texting you and brags about it.

llevinso :  Oic. Since she had told you about the mama thing I just thought it might be simpler for you to have the convo directly. In any case, hope it goes well!

futurerosiehanson :  exactly this! Babies babble and some sounds are easier to make than others. The “d” sound is even easier than the “m” sound so, consequently some babies’ first sounds are da da  but this doesn’t mean she/he is identifying daddy- it’s just a fun and easy sound to make.
