My dd is going to 18 months in April and she does really talk. She does say any word she babbles but no really words yet.  She does say mama and dada but nothing else. The doctor told me not to worry about for another couple of months.  But I'm still worried!

My son is 2 and he is just now picking up a large vocabulary. All kids start at different times.

Kids may start at different times, but there IS a normal progression.  By 18 months, he SHOULD have about 6 recognizable words.  My granddaughter is 13 months, and she regularly says:  yes, no, quiet, dog, Moo (dog's name), & OK.  She occasionally says "Boom", which is what we say when she falls on her seat, and "Let's go".

Oldest started talking at 12 m, and we could undersand him.

Second started at 2.5 and now goes to speach at school, has increased pressure of her inner ears, but no hearing loss, dr said could be why her speach is off.

Third is 16 months, misses some letters in hr words but with contex we can understand her.

I wouldnt worry each develope differently, if truely worried ask about an ent doing a hearing test again.

My oldest it was not till after three she really started to talk. We started speech therapy when she as 2.5 years old. My second was a bit after two and my third was a bit before two years old. Around 2 years old they seem to have a word explosion. Just keep working on trying to get to get them to talk and talk a lot to them. Like what you are doing, getting,what they are doing, what they have and try to get them to say it too. Do over do it but just having them try is great. Before you know it she will be talking.

Callie started saying a few clear words at about 12m. Shes 21m now and can probably say 40 words and a few 3-4 word sentences. The rest is just babble I can't understand.

My oldest son was around a year I think when he started talking. My youngest son was practically BORN talking, LOL!! Not really, but he did start talking pretty early. By the time he was 18 months, he was speaking in full sentences. I guess he picked up on it so fast by listening to his older brother. Neither one of them has shut up since, LOL!!

My first was around a year. My second still isn't really talking and he's over 2. We also have him in speech therapy but not sure if it's helping or not.

All kids are different. If your daughter is saying some words and understanding what you tell her, I don't think you should worry.

My youngest is 18 months and she babbles mainly, but she does know quite a few words too.

I wouldn't worry. She'll get there sooner than you want her to ;)
