DISCLAIMER: i KNOW all kids are different and i KNOW twins tend to talk late.
I'm anxious for them to talk! so I have a few questions
if you say where is the truck they can point to the truck if you say where is the duck they can point to a duck etc they know what things are, and they say "whats that" and "that" they have like five or so words but they like NEVER use them. aside from "whats that" and "that" which they use constantly. I've been trying to ask THEM whats that and making them say it but they dont. (although I'm still continuing to do it)
at what point should I worry about hearing? and what would be the signs?
oh I didn't mention theyre 19 months, almost 20 months. (both boys)
the reason I say hearing is because well I'm paranoid lol and my friends daughter went until she was around almost 2 and they realized her hearing was impaired for whatever reason and they put in ear tubes and that helped so shes just learning to talk now. plus they say "ba" all the time when they are talking about balls and balloons and bottles, b words obviously. well the other day i was trying to get them to say banana and i said "say banana say ba" and they both would only repeat "da" there was another time that day they did a similar thing but with a different word/sound
so my questions are
when did your twins talk?
what can i do to help/encourage speaking?
what are signs of hearing impairment?
when should I be concerned about not speaking?
or any other advice you have!
I'm not overly concerned because they are developmentally fine, I'm just anxious for words!
