When did your toddler start talking?

more than just a few words. And if they have older siblings, when did they start talking? And if they go to pre-pre-school classes (such as Gymboree or Mommy n Me), I want to know all specifics and exact ages. Thank you.

  • LOL... I'd sure like him to stop for a few minutes here and there... just so I can have one thought of my own in my head each day!


    I do remember that he started talking earlier then my DD... but he didn't make as much sense as she did when she started... DD would translate for DS... they are 2 yrs & 4 months apart... so that came along slower for him.

  • It's hard to be specific. I consider my children to be somewhat late talkers. I have written down that my first son had 11 words at 18 months, and 83 words at 2 years old (I wrote them all down) they pretty much had to all be translated, most people couldn't understand a word he said. But by 3 I think he had a huge vocabulary, we worked with a speech therapist/ friend of mine at 3 1/2 to help him be more understandable, it didn't really help, but he's gotten a lot better on his own, he is 4 1/2 now.

    My daughter had 37 words at 18 months, by 2 she spoke in sentances and had a huge vocabulary. I think people can understand most of what she says, she is 2 1/2 now.

    My 6 month old boy is not babbling and I'm assuming going to be a late talker as well.

    I'm a sahm, no preschool other than sunday school, and a church preschool program for 2 hrs once a week during the school year.

  • You wouldn't find it funny because you are so wrapped up in your "truth" that nothing is funny to you anymore. Do you ever laugh and have fun?

  • My son said several things at 12 months... around a dozen words. By 18 months he started saying quite a bit, I'd say around 75 + words. And now, he just turned 2, and he talks all of the time! He's starting to say longer sentences, usually 4-5 words.
    He's an only child so far...
    He doesn't go to mommy and me classes or anything like that... but he does go to daycare part time.
