My three year old stuttering

Hi my three year old started stuttering about three days ago.  She would speak fine before this.  I've read that it is normal for this to happened but I am just scared.  I look at my daughter and I feel sad.  I wish I could help her.  I am trying to do what I've read which is to repeat again what she just said slowly so that she understands how is supposed to be said. I don't tell her to stop repeating. But I am still worried  and scared. I've told my husband to do the same but he doesn't want to.  He wants to take her to a speech pathologist. We did talk to her pediatrician and she also said it was normal.  I am so scared this would never go away.  I am trying to be strong but sometimes is just hard.  My poor little one even has a inguinial hernia and just waiting for the referral.  Please if someone can give me some advise I would really appreciate it.

The Stuttering Foundation has great information on their web site including if and when a child needs to see a speech therapist.  Sometimes it is just a normal stage of development and speech therapy is not needed.  There are great tips for parents about talking with toddlers, too.
