I have 6 daughters and they were all different. My oldest spoke in sentences at 10 months old. My 2nd didn't speak until 21/2 because she was painfully shy and the 1st one always spoke for her. The 3rd was about 18 months as well as the 4th and 5th. My 6th is 22 months and she doesn't say but a few words.

My son just turned 22 months and he is saying four word sentences. He is probably a little ahead, but I think all kids can learn how. And two word sentences still count! My son says, "Juice, please."; "Hold you"; Sissy is sleeping."; "I can do it."; "I get it." Don't worry if your child doesn't say three or four words at a time. Sometimes they don't talk much now, but in a few months or so, you'll wish they'd be quiet!!!!! Hope this helps.

i can definetly identify with all of u moms i have three children all seven yrs apart and each of them started to do things at different stages of their lives...just because ur child doesnt say whole sentences that we can understand doesnt mean theyre not talking. sometimes i understand and sometimes i dont. my daughter tells me the same story ova and ova again using hand gestures and sounds the only thing i understand is her sisters name and whateva happened her sister is the blame. oh how i wish i knew what she is sayn. but most erything else she says is understood.

My daughter is a talker, she's now 22 months old and will talk your ear off. She began saying single words around 9 months and by 13 months had a vocab of about 30 words and by about 18 months she wasnt speaking sentences but you could easily have a conversation with her and now at 22 months she speaks sentences and can sing just about every word in several of her favorite songs.

Be careful of the "my child is..." because it can freak you out if yours doesn't measure up. Especially if this is your first baby. The responses below regarding each baby being different is REALLY important to head. But be thoughtful of your gut instincts and be sure to ask whatever questions you feel are significant here at CofM and your pediatrician

My little girl is 23 months old and is not saying any sentences but a vast variety of words with multiple syllables. Started some speech therapy at 18months old. but still waiting to hear a sentence (and Mama!) The seseme street crew all have clear names but not me . . .

my eldest we could have full conversations with at around 18 months - was really amazing but the twins while they are saying some words - probably about 15-20 each - there is still a lot of mumble. Although their understanding is fab - if i tell them to get their shoes they will, or to go stand by their highchairs they will etc etc. All children are different so i shouldnt worry too much. I have the added problem of the girls being twins and they are notorious for speaking later - who needs to speak to mummy when we can communicate adequately with each other in our own twin language

I really don't think so, my son has less words but the doctor said that you could be waiting 3 months to been seen by a speech therapist and that it just sends them on the right road to talking! He also said to talk to my local gp to get into the system for the speech therapist and from his experience with his own children who had delayed speech, he said he found public system far better than private! `I said I was going to wait until he was 2 but he said to go about it now!

Hi, My son, Robert was born on Feb 28 2008 and has hardly any words, about 5 in total, he makes attempts at car, ball, truck etc, I was at doctor with him yesterday for a different complaint and spoke to the doc about it and he said to go to speech therapy and go public because it opens up all avenues to you when you are in the system!!! His child also had problems but once he started speech therapy it just gave him the push he needed. I think that just some children really take their time!!! I wouldn't worry just yet! Hope this was of some help to you, Jillian

I also believe there is a HUGE range of what is normal. I have twin girls and they are at two totally separate ends of the spectrum. One can say up to 6 or 7 word sentences (ie, I want to have one too, or I have to go pee-pee potty now) and the other just a handful of words that you can actually understand along with LOTS of baby jargon. So it is very interesting to see such a drastic difference with the same age kids.

My daughter said her first full sentence @ 19mths. She said, "Mommy I have yogurt, please?, lol I was so surprised. She also sur prised me when I asked her name n she replied, "Daya" and told me she was two but only held out 1 finger. She's only 1 but I figured its because of all of the older kids n the house that contributes to her learning so fast.

My son doesn't speak in complete sentences yet. But then again every child is different in their development. My friend's son who is 11 days older than my son can say 3 to 4 word phrases. Go figure!

My little guy will only say words now... then it switches to baby talk when he attempts sentences. I'm not worried because if I ask him to do something like "will you put this in the trash" he will take the trash and put it in the trash can. Or where is your shoes he will go find his shoes.

I believe he understands what I am saying so its just a matter of time before he starts saying things back to me :)

Annabelle has only been hearing English for about 9 months now, but she already repeats (or tries to) all kinds of words and we hear new ones everyday. She's been using 2 word sentences for a couple of months now (I down, What's that? etc) and so far we've only heard 1 three word sentence (I watch this) once.

hello! my son is 22 months old but his speech is just some kind of a mumble. it's because his nanny doesn't talk to him always. he has only few words. my husband and i have very little time to talk to him because we are both working. but i don't worry about it. my neighbor's son learned to talk in full sentence when he was 3. and now, he's normal and intelligent. it really depends upon the environment.

Quoting Fiona:

Mine used to repeat sentences that we use often like 'there it is' at 18 months, then picked up lots of odd words between 18-21 months and now at 22 months has started putting them into sentences like' big red bus' and will copy almost everything you say, if its a full sentence he does the last few words.


My daughter was the same exact way.  Except she says lots of sentances, just some words are hard to understand.

I'm a talker too. I think that is where my daughter gets it from. She is bilingual so the sentences are mixed up between both languages. Sometimes, we are the only ones who can understand her.

My daughter started talking right after she turned one and now we carry on conversations..I'll ask questions, she'll answer and she'll ask questions and I'll answer. But my son (who is now 5) started talking much later...he said words but didn't talk in sentences until he turned 2. So each child is different and learn things at different paces.

Mine's been combining words for a few months now. Around 18 months he started repeating sentences he had heard, and now he typically speaks in 3-4 word sentences. Stuff like "watch Elmo again" and "that very big tree" and just now he said "fish get in bath" (his daddy is reading him a book).

my son will be 2 in febuary and even though he has spoke in full sentence before he seems to go threw his stages one week he will recite his abcs and the next weeks when asked to say them he acts as if he has no idea what your talking about. he is in preschool and it has been a very goos experience he has a very big vocabulary and knows may songs and there moves such as the wheels on the bus ittsy bittys spider rock a bye baby ext. i kno other children that are a little older than him and barley speak at all so i think it al depends on the child they all learn things at diffrent times and whne one child may learn to talk early another may learn to walk first.

My son doesn't say alot of words yet, but he does try to put together sentences. It usually doesn't sound like much, but the other day I realized he was saying "there you go" when he handed me his toy. If you have any concerns make sure you speak with your doctor. Because of autism they are now screening children's speech at this age.

My 22 month old is saying alot of words. Even off the wall words like gorilla. But the only sentences he says are "Where it go?" "What that/this?" I figure he'll be a Why? baby. haha He has about 50 or so words that he uses properly but not really any sentences yet.

Usually children will acomplish one milestone at a time. My son would say a lot of words but not in sentences. When he would try to speak in sentences it became a bunch of mumble babble. I was concerned and took him to be evaluated to make sure he wasn't falling behind and he was behind a little with speech and was way ahead with his cordination, like hand-eye cordination and stability. They had assured me to keep doing what I was doing, correcting words, having him repeat it correctly, and practicing sounds he had a little more troubles with, they were right. He started improving his lauguage skills and is doing much better.

Our 22 month old daughter only says like 2 or 3 sentences, but I'm not concerned about it. My nieces and nephews all started talking at different ages, but they can all talk your ear off now! :)

I cant remember! All i know is that i have child 22 months and is barely speaking. he has speech theropy twice a week and we are teaching him some sign.

[deleted account]

they are all different, but my grandmother takes care of mine and boy she likes to talk, so guess what, my 21 month old son has been talking since before 1yr, he gets better and better, to the point that we have to constantly watch what we say b/c he will repeat the last word of every sentence he hears, tries to sing in the car w/ the radio, it's incredible, so talk to ur baby, narrate everything you so as you do it, even if it doesn't make sense...

Hi Unati, all my children started talking at different ages, seraphina my youngest has just started making 2 word sentances like "mama up" " me hurt " ect my eldest (she is 19 now ) started talking at about 18months by 2 you could have a full conversation with her and other adults could understand her as well, each child is different.
