Ok so hes 14 months old, he is developmentally advanced for his age, well to me he is. i do have two older kids (girls)
So he used to say mama when he wanted me badly. Like i would block off the kitchen with one of the sofas when i had to clean the kitchen. He tried hard to squeeze through and when i was in there for like 10 mins or more cleaning he would cry and cry and call me mama. its not like he couldnt see me but i had to clean. im OCD when it comes to a clean kitchen. He doesnt say no other real words, he doesnt say Dadda or daddy. My husband would always say the word KUMBA to him. IDK why, but when hes around him he says my little kumba lol. So now the baby says Kumba, kumba over and over. He used to say Vacuum but more like Ba-coom.. Im just wondering why he can say Kumba, which is a hard word to say especially with a K. I never heard children start talking with the K sound. He babbles a lot, u cant understand a word he says. He gets frustrated and points and if u give him the wrong thing he throws a tantrum and cries. I dont think its because he wants his way, i just think he cant express him self and i dont know what he wants. he learned to crawl at 6 months walk at 10 months.
I guess his verbal skills are slower then his physical ones. But when should i be concerned? He can use a straw and a open cup just fine.

He is perfectly normal for speech! My son didn't really talk much until he was three years old. Boys generally develop speech slower than girls. Child specialists used to think it's because little girls played house and talked to their babydolls while little boys played cars and went "vroom, vroom," but now children pretty much play with everything and girls are still developing faster than boys.
His frustration is also perfectly normal, unfortunately. Many moms are teaching their little boys and girls sign language, and having a lot of success at that. He can learn the signs for simple objects that he wants, like "cup, down, up, hungry, thirtsy," and more. You can teach him the word and the sign together, and there are many many books to help you, since most of us parents don't know sign either. Another advantage to learning sign language, is it helps develop small motor control.
