When do you start seeing verbal cues?

When do babies usually start relating verbal cues to events? For example: a child drops something and says "uh oh"

  • You could check out some developmental charts as mentioned by kaycee14. Another site is under the parents page there are developmental checklists. Disclaimer - this is my business website, but this information is there for parents about developmental milestones, so thought it was appropriate to mention the site. A goggle search would probably turn up many more sites with great information.

  • 12 to 18 months.
    Around 11 months, babies start to use one or two words besides mama and dada - which they are finally beginning to use for the correct person. By 18 months, most kids will have 10 to 20 words.
