  • Mine is 14 months and he says... Dada, Moma, nona, Papa, yes, no, whaz at? (whats that), Ank ou (thank you), mouth, yay!, and he babbles his head off. I try to work with him all the time on talking though. He loves to make new words

  • My son is 14 months and he says "mama, dada, rock rock, uh oh, bear, pah (for paci), ball, sis (for Sissy)" He's working on cracker and cup - he says the first letter. And then he babbles a lot - the inflection is there so we know he's trying to say something, we just don't understand it. I had concerns when he was 9 months old and had him evaluated by early intervention so he's been receiving speech therapy once a week for 2-3 months now. His speech therapist is saying he's actually ahead right now, so I'm not sure how much longer they will continue but I figure as long as they will work with him it can't hurt!

  • My son is 16 months and still isn't saying words on a daily basis. Sometimes we'll say, "How big is Zachary?" And he'll say "Big." Or he'll say Patty -- for Patty Cake. And he said Hi, once. He will say quack when I ask him what a Duck says and mmmm for cow.

    Our doctor referred us to a speech therapist as he should be saying at least a couple words by now. We're waiting for the call. I'm not worried yet and I know a speech therapist will only help him!

  • At 15 months my son said about 30 words... he's 18 months now and says around 50.

  • He had a small vocabulary. He knew a lot more words than anyone realized because even though he knew what he was saying (and we eventually caught on) a lot of the words he was saying didn't actually sound like the real word so it was hard to tell. I agree with anon :48 as well.
