  • a child can only talk as much as the parents teach them.

    thats what my mom told me, and i have to admit it, she is absolutely right. Learning games ect. is a good idea too. but i wouldnt actually buy any of those learning games. because all you have to do is get your childs toys, play with them and always talk to them when you do that. explain every single move. im talking like crazy to my daughter since she was born. hehe

  • My son is 9 months old and I have been talking to him, telling him everything that we are doing, (ex.. mommy is going to give you a bath) and he already says at least 10 words. My favorite words that he says is "car" and "anta" for santa. Also i know that my nephew doesn't talk much and he needs to have his ears checked because he may need tubes. Maybe you should make her an appointment just to make sure that her ears are fine, and take it from there? Just an idea. Good luck.

  • Talk to her as much as you can. Read to her every day. Look into playgroups in your community. Many churches have drop in playgroups and only ask that you make a donation of a dollar or two. They're a great way to meet moms in the area. Another source: Early Intervention. Ours has a play group. We went when the twins were 6 mos becaus one had some problems with his neck. Once his neck problems were resolved we continued to go as "community kids".

  • Talk, talk, talk to her!!! Both my children were speaking in full sentences by age 14 months. I'm not saying that to sound snobby, I NEVER baby talked to either one of them in fact I always used and still do my adult vocabulary. As they got older it was funny to hear them use these very large words that I thought they didn't know the meaning of. They hear everything and retain more than we give them credit for. I always made them ask for what they wanted and if they didn't know the word, I would say it and have them repeat me. Now that they are older (6 & 9) they have very impressive vocabularies. Good luck my dear and know that every child is different.
