my daughter is 18 months old and she doesnt talk much at all..

the thing is she used to speak more words then stopped saying them, like...

momma, dadda

that

a dew -  andrew her brother 

turn turn turn (when she pointed to the fan)

no

ca la  - color

nie nie  - night night

cat

 

p.s. she said all those words when she was only 12 months old..

 

that is until she got the MMR vaccine, I mean like clock work, she stopped talking..

 

NOW she babbles just like a 6 month old..

she understands everything i say because she will get things i tell her to get, she points to things she wants. BUT, I hate that she once spoke & now does not..

I am definetly going to bring it to her pediatricans attention..

 

How many words does your 18 month old say often, not like once and never again ???
and did he /she ever speak then stop like my daughter ??

 

            I found this online........

By 18 months: your baby should say 10 to 25 single words, point to objects that interest him, and bring things to show you.

 By 24 months: Your baby should say at least 50 words and use two-word phrases ("Doll mine," "Daddy go").

I'm not much help with my dd...she was speaking full sentences by the time she was 1 yr. old.  But my nephew and another friend's son really don't talk too much either.  Both only actually speak a few words...I'd say by the time the child was 2, I'd start to get worried.  Sometimes the kid just doesn't want to talk until they are ready....

my 7 yr old son was just diagnosed with aspergers syndrome , but when he was a baby boy he could talk and early too...

I dont know if she will have the same thing, but it is concerning to me..

Mine would be consider behind by that. He says a total of maybe 3 words.Mama, Dada, and Baba. He understand what i say to him and can show me what he wants. He also will "feed" his baby alive cub. He just doesn't speak words. But he will jabber up a storm. We almost have him saying baby and good.

It cant hurt to bring it up to your ped at your next appointment. Every child hits milstones at different times. My son was diagnosed with autism at 18 mths but not talking wasnt the only factors. He wasnt walking, he hated crowds of people, he had sensory issues.

my daughter will be 2 on the 10th and she doesnt talk much either...she does the babble where it sounds like another language but as for real words its just a few, she knows like daddy mamma dog cat fish and a few other but i also taught her a few signs so she can tell me "more" "please" " hungrey" and "thank you"

OMG !! My middle daughter did the EXACT SAME THING !! In fact, I thought she had gone deaf & was teaching her deaf sign language. We had takem her to so many docs. Finally found a pediatric ENT .   ( This daughter has an EXTREMELY  high pain tolerance. as a baby , whenever   they'd draw blood , she'd sit there and GRIN !! )  The ENT told us she had suffered sever ear infections, put tubes in her ears & now she has the hearing of 1 ear.  ( I felt sooooo FORRIBLE , not even knowing this little angel was suffering.  She NEVER let on, always a very happy baby. )  They sent her to speech therapy & now she talks our head off.  Also. The same day she got the MMR , she got full blown pertusses within an hour. ( Scarey !! ) She can't have any more.  Pleazzzz keep us updated  about your daughter.  I'd take her to an ENT - Ear Nose & Throat pedatric specialist.

My BF's sister's 3 year old doesn't speak hardly at all. She was speaking on track all the way up until about 18 months and then she just stopped. When they took her to the doctor they said basically she had lost her interest in talking and was losing her connection to words. It could be related to her having a hard time with the words or the fact that you (his sister) could understand her needs when she didn't talk. She would point and stuff just like your explaining but just couldn't seem to say the words. They called in some "intervention" speech guy and she was talking within a few weeks.
