PARENTS are always competing on whose name their baby is going to say first.
One mum has revealed a trick she used to make sure her baby said mama – although people have warned she might regret it.
Sharing the trick on TikTok, Trojaczka mama, revealed all you need is a willing partner and a biscuit.
To get her son to say mama she takes the biscuit and pretends to fed it to her husband every time he says mama as a 'reward'.
While her son is being held by her partner, he continues to report the word.
By the fifth time, her baby slowly catches on and utters 'mama,' as she then gives him the biscuit.

One wrote: "Now he thinks mama means feed me."
Another person commented: "Now your baby will call food mama."
