  • My dd was saying understandable words at 6 months. She would say night night, mama, dada, nana, go dee go dee go,papa. Since then we have come to discover she is gifted...

  • My son says "Hi" since 6 months but that's the only "real" word he says. He can say the sounds for mama and dadda now at 7 months but they don't seem to have meaning.

  • We have video of her clearly saying Hi Daddy at about 5 months. Then (and this is common) she stopped talking for months.
    Doctors want to see 10 to 20 words by 18 months. Fewer may be fine. More is also fine.
    When can you tell if a child is "gifted"? Not until 1st or 2nd grade. Before that, the variation of "normal" is just too great. One child may not be saying anything at 24 months, another may be speaking in full sentences. Both are "normal". The variation evens out by the time they start grade school.
