My daughter is 15 months and still only says mama dada .. she runs she says no by shaking her head in the no form she looks when I say her name or when I say look she climbs on and off of things shes happy she grew out of her bobo (pacifier) and bottles she actually hates them now.... but her doc says she should be saying around 3 extra words from mama and dada.. throughout the day ill have moments with her of having a "conversation" or pointing things out but nothing now ive take an hour and a half a day to sit with her and her toys and books no t.v. or any distractions just to read to her ask her questions like are you hungry... would u like to play with the elephant.. etc. But she just babbles although shes been trying to say something with a b... I try to throw words at her with the letter b but she just laughs and then go do w.e. she was up to...what should I do? What if she doesnt talk :( nervous first time mom

I underdtand. My 16 month old only says 4 wofds. But the doc is not worried. He understands everything. So for now I'm just keeping an eye on him.

My daughter is almost 23 months and she hardly talks. We started teaching her to sign.

My daughter is 2 and just started saying real words although most are not understandable.... she is now in speech therapy through EI (she was already seeing a developmental specialist for other issues)

My DD was the same way. The pedi wasn't concerned until she was2. Literally at her 2 year check up, she could say maybe 10 words. We got her right into speech therapy and saw a huge improvement. She's now 9 and still gets therapy in school once a week, she has problems with Rs. I wouldn't worry quite yet. If she does need therapy, speaking from experience, it'll be OK.

She seems normal to me. Don't fret.

My daughter is learning English & Spanish so her pediatrician isn't concernd. At the high risk preemie follow up, I was told to buy picture object books and that helped her too.

My DD is also 15months and she doesn't say anything yet.  (I am enjoying the quiet as my 2 older kids were chatter boxes by this age and still are)  As long as she is understanding you when you are talking to her (telling her no, come here, look, etc) she is learning and will talk when she is ready to give her some time yet before you freak out.

Every child is different. Our pediatrician told us DS should be talking more also. We gave it time because he was obviously smart and its not like he wasn't talking at all. He did ALOT of babbling, even talked through his nose for a long time. It should come with time Mama. 15 months would be a little early for me to worry. Babies are so busy at that age. If she is getting her point across and getting what she wants she may not feel the need to say more. Have you tried sign language?

No I am not saying to worry or be concerned, al kids do things on their own time, but have you had her hearing checked?
