My son is 13 months old and he doesn't say much. He says the random dada, mama, baba things, but randomly, and not when I try to get him to say it lol He has said what's that, dat, sit, and yeah, but rarely. Anyone have any suggestions on how to help him with it? I'm not in any hurry, but just curious. (Nor am I worried he doesn't really talk) He has his vocal moments, but its just baby talk hehe

  • That's normal. That is about all my 24 mo grandson talks. We were excited we could get him to say two Sat. on his birthday. Some boys don't talk much until they are 3.

  • Do not worry. He is where he should be. Just keep talking lots and trying to get him to talk.

  • My dr gave me a great piece of advice, repeat after them- the sound their making, and that should help to expand their vocabulary. Like he will point to dog and say dah, so I repeat "da. Dog" since I've started this last month, his vocabulary has tripled,and he gibbers more :) so cute! My ds is 14.5 mos btw
