How many words does your 14 month old know? (Or your toddler who is around 14 months old)

My 14 month old only says "mama" and "dada" that normal? Shouldn't she be talking more?

  • She's probably fine. Mine says da-da, ma-ma (very rarely), dog and stop. Oh, and "dat" (for what's that?) But that's about it. And it's true that most kids this age understand a lot more than they can say.

  • Mine says about 6 or 7 clearly. She tries to say other things but they don't come out well. Every child is different, I guess.

  • My granddaughter is 19 months. She refuses to talk. She knows how to say Mama and stuff, but she just refuses to talk. I blame it on the pacifier. She does this mumbling thing, which is also from having the pacifier in her mouth. We are working on this. I just started babysitting her and am working with her to talk. However, we did ask the Dr. at her recent checkup who advised that if she weren't talking by 2, we would need to get her into speech therapy.

  • My daughter says bye-bye, baba (bottle), uh-oh, duck, toes

    She only says Mama when she's upset and she never says dada

    She's not much of a talker yet either.

  • my first born did not say a peep at 24 months. He would point and fuss. The doctor was not worried, but at his 3 yr check up referred to have him evaluated by a speech therapist. My son had a year of speech therapy, and he caught up

    . (My son was a 33  preemie and the doc expected him to be delayed, but grow out of his delays on his own time table)
