  • not at all. every child is different and all develop differently. My advice is to get her more active with other children or children that are no more than 1-2 years old than her and she will pick up from them as well. My son started talking more around age 3 i think and putting sentences together

  • Nope. As long as she's trying that's all that matters. Every child is different and every child speaks at different rates.

  • No. My eldest daughter barely spoke a word (we could understand) until she was nearly 3, but she's now a healthy happy and very clever teenager. She gets As and Bs in school and barely ever shuts up! All kids are different and I think the ones that are slow to talk are just too busy listening and learning. :)

  • Every child is different. But if you are concerned about her speech, I would start with getting her hearing tested. Two of my children have some degree of hearing loss.

  • two of my sibling and me have all had a speech impediment so I'm just hoping that its not hereditary

  • children learn and develop at different ages, but if you are worried ask your doctor, they should be able to help you.

  • Some children take quicker to motor skills than speech. It's easy to be worried about it though in that husband had a speech impediment and we've had have checkups for our ds to check out his glands because that's what my husband's derived from, thankfully he's just fine and there's a good chance your dd is too :) Good Luck momma :)
