My son is almost 18 months old and so far hasn't really said any words. He babbles ALOT in baby talk and occasionally he'll say something that resembles a word but we are still yet to hear any actual words. He responds to requests from us e.g. if I say 'give Daddy and kiss and cuddle goodnight' he will and if someone says 'bye' or 'see ya' he'll start waving at them, so I know that his hearing is fine. We talk to him all the time and dont 'baby talk' to him, we have also tried refusing him things like a treat if he doesn't say 'ta', but nothing seems to be working.
Does anyone have any suggestions?
