My DD is 19 months and the only thing she can say is mom. She has a cousin the same age who talks up a storm he his in daycare though , I don`t know if that makes a difference. I have been trying to teach her  simple words but no such luck yet.

My son was almost two and only said "Mama"  I started worrying. People were telling me to get his ears checked. My friend who is a nurse saw that he was folliwing directions and pointing at things and did all the other normal things.  I saw other kids saying tons of things and they were a year younger than him. Then about a week before his second birthday, he started repeating everything. It literally happens over night. Try not to worry. Every kid is different and does things in their own time. Really, it happens over night.

Don't compare your child to someone else's!! Or even to another one of your other children! EVERY child is different!! My 2 year old is a slow talker and so was her sister. My 11 month old son is so talkative and says things clearly!! Both of my girls crawled at 5 months and walked at 9 months. He started crawling at 8 months and shows no intrest in walking unless it is along something! They all focus on things differently as well. My second daughter was jumping and kicking a ball while running alot sooner than almost all the other kids her age! Start looking at what she is doing that the other's aren't and take comfort in that!!

Its well known that kids who socializE have major advantages.

Start taking her to playgroups. If you don't know anyone in the area with kids your daughters age join a moms group or start one up.

 My Lo who is now 3 didnt talk really fast. I was a little worried . She was well into her 2's before she started really talking alot and then the sentences came. She did not go to daycare or preschool. My first daughter did and she was very quick to do EVERYTHING. I honestly would not worry. Kids do things at their own pace.
