  • If she's almost 2 and can only say one word, you might want to ask her pedi about her development. BUT some kids do develop slower than others. It could be normal, I'm not sure. Let's see what some other moms say...

  • Not to scare you, but my son had about 2 dozen workds by age 1, and has been talking in short sentences for a couple of months now. He just turned two.

    She is going to go in for her 2-year well baby check, so I suggest you talk it over with the pediatrician next month. It is most likely nothing to worry about, but it never hurts to ask a professional.

  • My daughter is 2.5 and can say full sentences. Most people tell me she is pretty advanced for her age though. She said her first 3 words at 9 months.

  • My daughter had at least 100 words by age 2. She was ahead, though. My son probably had 50 or 60 at that age. I think he is more typical. I would definitely ask her pediatrician. If she were mine, I would probably seek out a hearing test and a speech therapy assessment, regardless of what the doctor says. I've found that pediatricians tend to take a "wait and see" approach sometimes when it isn't the best course of action. Good luck!

  • My son turned two in September and talks with 4-5 word sentences. And repeats words he hears all the time. But all my frends kids' don't talk as much. A few of them are almost a year older than him. I think there is a pretty good gap to where yor child "should be" at this point. I owuldn't be too concered at this point, but as a mother I can understand your worry. It deff. wouldn't hurt to ask a professional. Maybe they can give you excersises to do. I agree with sexymommy87 reading does help! I've read two books a night to my son before bed since before he was one. He repeats stuff back all the time so I know he learns alot of words from that.

  • My son is 13 months old and know's what everything is and points at what he wants but doesn't talk yet. not ALL kids talk at the same age - some kids develop that skill a little later than "normal" 23 months is a bit old for only 1 word so I would talk to your ped about it but I have a feeling since she can say her name - she may have her own language or one you understand also -

  • Your daughter should be learning words by now. Do you teach her? like if she wants juice, ask her " do you want juice?" and whatever she says even if its a cue, just says yes? and serve her juice.........dont worry i thought my daughter wasnt going to talk much either but she's learning cause she's with other kids now.....if anything you should put her in daycare....it would help her alot.....but you should ask her questions and tell her whats your doing so she can understand..........
