my new baby had a check last week and the health visitor was more interested in how much my 2 year old was working. She's saying things which people around her all the time can understand however the health visitor was saying she should be speaking 50 words and know things that she doesn't, which I think she does she just doesn't vocalise them. She said that on her 2 & 1/2 month check if she wasn't speaking alot more then she'd need speech therapy, should I be worried? I've tried everything to encourage her to speak she just doesn't seem to want to. My husband and I only started talking properly when we were 3, do you think this could have something to do with it? Thanks in advance!
