  • My son didn't talk much at all either. When he did start talking he had a speech problem, NO biggie!! He saw a speech therapist at school when he was in elementary. NOW he is 19yrs old and he still doesn't talk much. lol He just isn't a BIG talker that's all.. IF you are really worried, talk to his dr.. But I don't think its a big deal.. JMO.. Good luck..

  • Hello, no, I wouldn't be concerned for your son at this point. Every child is different and sometimes we compare our children to other children and think "my kid doesn't do that" . I'm a school teacher and the difference of every child would amaze you! Also, he's not off track, most children will pick up more words between 18 and 24 months, if you don't see an improvement then you can start the process of having his speech evaluated (which is free through your school district). Hang in there, he's fine :) Good luck!!

  • my son is the same way and i worry a little too. i RARELY if ever hear him say any real words. he mostly just whines now to get what he wants... so annoying! he went through a phase around his one year b-day when he would actually repeat some words that i said, like mama, dada, no, corn.. i know.. corn is weird! haha! anyways, now he doesnt even try. its driving me a little crazy. so i dont know, i think we are in the same boat.
