I have 3 boys my middle child is 18 months old and has no words, he hasn't even said mama or dada, should I be worried, he is babbling but not much, my 10 week old boy is more vocal. my first son was speaking sentences by the age of 2. Please can anyone help,
I'm not a medical professional, but having an almost 3 year old, I am around children now a fair amount with play dates, etc. I most definately notice a difference in each childs development. They are healthy and normal kids, but come along at their own pace. My son's friend really didn't start talking until just over 2, and now talks non stop. He seems to be catching up very quickly all of a sudden.
If your concerned, talk to your Dr. But in all honesty, at 18 months I wouldn't be too worried yet. All the best.
my son is 4 and he did not start talking to where i could understand him until just this year. the past 6 months he has come so far. leaps and bounds actually. see, i was laid off for 2 yrs right after he was born. he was with me that whole time. i finally got a job and he had to go to daycare. him being around all these other kids has made all the difference. before, i would talk to him but it wasn't the same. they pick up so much more from other kids. i am so proud of him. talking so much. i was really worried. they tried to tell me he was like almost 2 yrs behind. he is catching up so fast. they learn at their own pace for sure. he is going to speech therapy for his endings of words now. that is all he is having trouble with but getting 100 times better.
