My son will be 3 in July. He has said a few words, but he mostly just tries them on and then stops saying them after a few days. He understands instruction or when I call him for dinner, etc.
He babbled all the time until he was 17 months old when my husband/his Daddy died. Then he all of a sudden stopped babbling. I figured it was due to experiencing such tragedy at a young age, because most children who go through hard times either sleep a lot or don't talk. But now it's been almost 19 months since he passed and my son's still not talking. Everyone says to wait it out, or reminds me that I didn't talk until I was almost 4.
I'm also worried that he won't be able to attend preschool if he doesn't talk yet...which I think would actually be good for him to be around other kids who talk hoping he'll pick it up.
Anyone experience something similar?
Any advice is welcome.
