  • Very normal. You need to understand too that boys develop later than girls. Girls almost always talk way before boys do. My friend Mary's son was not saying a word at 24 months. BUT, now that he is almost 3 you can have complete conversations with him. They're all different, i really would not worry about it at all. Also, 14 months is still too young to be asking this. If you said 28 months, then i say do speech therapy.

  • Some kids talk early , some later. He is saying some words. I take care of a 15 month old who says only 3 words but has many jestures and can make his needs known. All kids are different. Have you run this by his pediatrician? GL

  • I don't think you have anything to worry about. My daughter is 20 months and she hardly talks, she talks in her own little language as long as they can say a certain amount of words you should be fine. Plus there is a huge difference from 1 yr 2 months and 3 years old
