Top 10 Phrases to Know When Having a Baby
1.
ترضّع
(teraḍḍaʿ) to breastfeed
Be careful because the word is not

(teraddaʿ)
It’s,
ترضّع
(teraḍḍaʿ)

بترضع البيبي كل تلت ساعات.
(betraḍḍaʿ el-beībī koll talat sāʿāt.)
“She breastfeeds the baby every three hours.”
2.
يلبس بافتة
(yelabbes bāvettah) to put on a bib
And in Egyptian Arabic, we usually use the word
مريلة
(maryalah) to refer to “bib”
Or
بافتة
(bāvettah)
whichever you like.
For example, you can say,
لازم تلبس بافتة قبل ما تاكل.
(lāzem telbes bāvettah ʾabl mā tākol.)
“She has to put on a bib before she eats.”

“I am going to change my clothes because it’s wet.”
4.

For example, you can say,

“I will sing him a lullaby.”
Okay. I only know one sentence. It’s
يلا ننام يلا ننام، وهدبحلك جوز الحمام.
(yallā nenām yallā nenām, ūhadbaḥlak ǧūz el-ḥamām.)
Or in Lebanese, it is
يلا ننام يلا ننام، وهدبحلك طير الحمام.
(yallā nenām yallā nenām, ūhadbaḥlak ṭīr el-ḥamām.)
It means like, let’s go to sleep and if you go to sleep, I will get you like pair of – not get you, but slaughter you a pair of pigeons because it’s very famous like it’s a delicious meal. So I will get you a pair of pigeons to eat if you sleep.
5.
ينام الضهر
(yenām el-ḍohr) to have a nap
الضهر (el-ḍohr) means afternoon and
ينام (yenām) means sleep.
So, to sleep in the afternoon is to have a nap.
For example, you can say,
البيبيهات عادةً بيناموا الضهر.
(el-bībīhāt ʿādaẗan beynāmū el-ḍohr.)
“Babies usually have naps.”
6.

(yezoʾ ʿarabeyyet el-ʾaṭfāl) to push a stroller
For example, you can say,
ممكن تزق عربية الأطفال؟
(momken tezoʾ ʿarabeyyet el-ʾaṭfāl?)
“Would you please push the stroller?”
عربية (ʿarabeyya) means car and
الأطفال (el-ʾaṭfāl) means babies or kids.
So it’s a baby car.
يزق عربية الأطفال
yezoʾ ʿarabeyyet el-ʾaṭfāl
8.

For example, you can say,

(hadḫol ʾaḥammī el-beībī.)
“I will go bathe the baby.”
10.
يجهزأكل البيبي
(yegahhez ʾakl el-beībī) to prepare baby food
And in Egyptian Arabic, we usually use the word

(serīlāk) Cerelac to refer to baby food.
So you can say,
قبل ما أنزل هجهز أكل البيبي.
(ʾabl mā ʾanzel hagahhez ʾakl el-beībī.)
“Before I go out, I will prepare the baby food.”
Or you can say,
