  • it's sounds to me like you LO is doing just fine. If you are concerned, talk to the pediatrician. The ped has been following the development of your LO and can tell you if there is cause for concern or not.
    Some kids develop speak quickly, some more slowly - depends on the kid, your involvement in speech development, the presence of sibilings, etc. Some kids have many words at 10 months, some don't really speak until 18+ months.

  • It seems to me your little one is right on track. I don't remember my daughter saying more than that at such a young age.

  • Every child is different, but I certainly don't think you have anything about which to be concerned.

  • My daughter started to speak words when she was months old, now she's 9. My nephew didn't say words till he was 2 and now he's 6 and speaks well. They are all different just keep talking to your child they learn from you
