When should I be concerned?

Im not like worried now but I just want to know if and when I should be concerned.
My baby is 8 months and a week old and she still has not say her first word.
She makes LOTS of noises and different sounds but no real words yet.
About what age should I be worried?

  • Around the 15th month mark. As long as she is hitting all the other milestones like crawling, holding her head up, rolling over than you have nothing to worry about. Some kids are late bloomers. My son didnt say his first word until 10 or 11 months old. Every kid is different.

  • you shouldn't be worried, this is normal.the first word IS just a babble, after all, until they put a meaning to the word.

  • Oh ya she is way ahead in all the other stuff. She is even standing already with help. Her dr said she is progressing alot farther and faster than most in her age group she just wont talk yet lol.
    Thanks ladies. :)
