I wouldn't worry about it just yet. All kids learn to speak effectively in their own time.



My son didn't talk hardly at all until he turned 2. Then he just busted out in full sentences, and now at 3.5, he speaks more clearly than some 5 year olds I've met.



I just figured he took his time learning and absorbing, before he put his words into use. Keep working with her. The more you talk with her, the more apt she is to talk back. :)

Ask her pedi at her 18 month check up. She doesnt sound super delayed or anything though.

Quoting EstherMonster:" My 18 month old DD says only a few words. She says: Dada, that, uh oh, thank you, stop it, no, hi, bye ... [snip!] ... often using her baby talk and I can't understand what she says most of the time? Should I look into seeing a speech specialist?"


my son doesn't talk at all but babbles a lot. His doctor at 18 months said it's ok as long as he's babbling, he will get the words together and make sense. I swear a couple weeks ago he said "you're fat" totally sounded like it, then he came up to me and said Anna (which is my SIL's name lol) He will point to his nose and poke himself in the eye to show he knows where that is. He knows his belly button and hair and mouth. My son is 21 months old.

You shouldn't compare! It will always make you panic!



My son just advanced a lot around 21 months. Seemed like it happened overnight! Lol. Just continue repetition with face parts, make it a fun game, and point to them in books..she should catch on soon!

My daughter only said 2 words at 18 months. Bubble and ball.
By 2-2.5 you would of never known she was a "late" talk.
I'm sure your LO is fine.

Yeah I thought I might be over panicking over nothing. I'll talk to her DR. Just to be sure though.

A lot of people tell me kids learn differently. Like I mentioned, her other motor skills seem great. I just wish she spoke more because she cries a lot still due to her lack of speech. It drives me cuckoo sometimes.

My 18 month old was only pointing to his belly button but will now do ears and eyes and teeth lol he is obsessed with teeth



She doesnt sound delayed to me.. My oldest was delayed until after 2..now he is 2+ years ahead with his vocabulary.



If youre concerned, mention it. But they all develop in their own time..

Lol!! I totally would have videotaped it too. Well, you're beautiful regardless of what your son said :P I'm sure you just misheard. I swear I hear my daughter say things she doesn't say. I forgot to mention that my daughter did learn her first spanish word (me & my side of the family are hispanic.) She learned how to say yes (si) in spanish. Everytime she says it though it sounds like she's saying shit. Lol. I shake my head everytime.




Happy Bday by the way!
