My baby only says about 10- 12 words. I am a bit worried. She has reached all other mile stones.

She uses a lot of babble when talking, and points to thing when she wants them. She also understands simple commands like "throw that in the trash, or lets go, and others. I am just worried.

  • Don't worry about it. My son talked in his own language until he was about 2 and 1/2....didn't even say mommy. He is 3 and 1/2 now and he does not stop talking! We are also a bilingual family and he now speaks both languages.

  • My older brother didn't talk until he was 4 they thought something was wrong with him but it turned out he didn't want to talk that he could do it just fine, so just let her be.

  • How old is ur LO? My dd said a couple words (like 4-5) until the day she turned 19 mos. My brothers firstwords came when he was 3 and it was because he could communicate throuh grunting!

  • I'm having the same problem with my 2 year old son. My daughter started talking at an early age and does not shut up, but Matthew just won't pick up on it. I try to get him to talk instead of pointing or grunting. and so far not much luck. He says a few things, but not much.
