  • My cousin didn't say a word until 17 months and then only a couple until 23 months when he would not stop talking. Pedi's say not to worry anytime before 2.

  • My youngest will be 18 mos this month...she's said Dada a handful of times and MaMa maybe 3 times...she won't repeat things...but she likes to yell "EEEEEE-YA"; LOL

    I have a feeling we will be sent for an evaluation at her next appt. She is one BUSY all-go, no-quit baby though...her sister wasn't climbing and exploring near as much as she is at this age; so I'm hoping that's all there is too it that's she's too busy doing other things...but really by now she should have some words...

    IDK what else to do...makes me feel bad

  • Our 22 m/o mostly says sounds "Whee", "Yay", and has only started in the last 1-2 months saying a few words. Our speech therapist (of about 5 wks) says it is not uncommon for boys to wait until they are around 2 and then say alot at once, instead of adding one word at a time to their vocabulary, unlike girls who may or may not start talking sooner. If you are worried, talk to your doctor. All kids progress at their own timeline, I wouldn't be concerned at this point, (but I was,.....I wouldn't be concerned knowing what I know now! LOL!) PS-As long as they are hitting other milestones, sitting, walking, playing with toys, turns to your voice, etc,....

  • I had one taking off with speech at 15 months, one who was just starting at 15 months and one who didn't speak until 22 months.

  • My daughters speech plateau-ed at 18 months. I took her to get evaluated for hearing and speech therapy. She was diagnosed with autism last month. I would reccomend finding out why the child is not progressing than waiting it out to see what will happen at 2.
