 I remember hearing this OWT a while back, but it seems to be one of the few that has always been right for me (so far). 

 The theory is that if your previous child's first word was Mum, you will have a girl next.  If her first word was Dad, you will have a boy.

 

Now, none of my kids first 'real' words have been either Mum or Dad, so i always count the first babble.  So far the only one of my kids to say 'Mamamama' first was DS2, after which i had our only daughter.

 

I'm still not sure about my last baby though.  His first word was Mamamama, but he only said it once before he started on the Dadadada's LOL. 

 

It's less than a week now until my scan, so i'm starting to clutch at straws LOL.

 Soooo not true for me! My first 3's first word was "ma-ma" and they actually all said other stuff (ba-ba, etc) before "da-da". The last two did say "da-da" before "ma-ma", though Happy

Never heard of this one before,but if it's true then technically I should be having a girl this time,as my DS's first word was mum! only 10 weeks to go and I'll tell you if it was right!x

Thats a load of old cobblers !! Babies find it easier to do the pronounciation with the tongue to teeth of the word Da da rather than Ma ma..or Mum..to bring their lips together for mmmmm is more difficult. Most babies start out with Da da....da da Happy Wink
