All dialects: Addressing one's father, mother

Dear all,

To me يا بابا and يا ماما both sound the most natural way to address my father and my mother.

But I was wondering would يا أبي / يا أمي work as well to address them? Or would these options sound too formal?

May I ask you which expressions you personally use?

Thank you in advance!

    For me I use ''بابا / أمي " , but without ''يا" which means ''O"
    Add to that my child calls me and his mother ''أبي/ ماما" and he calls his grandparents by "بابا / أمي"
