Robert still isn't talking although he makes the same sound for some things such as 'wa' for water and 't' for teddy. Just wondering where everyone's kid is up to?

hi my kaidaniel is january 2007 baby too
and he is 4 1/2 now. he's dad always blames me
for this since our son is mostly with me and
for him I pampered my son so much because he is
only one child in my family.

I also feel that same way that I really bothered since
most of his batchmates goods to conversin & reasoning but my son is not.
So I enrolled him to school to know more...

My son, Brayden, born on Jan 3rd is talking very well. I stay home w/him everyday and have many many conversations w/him which I think has helped his vocabulary very much. I talk to him like he is an adult. He also has two older siblings that are constantly playing w/him and talking to him so he has picked it up from everyone. He speaks very clearly and full sentences. It was almost as if he turned 2 and became a little man. He seems so much older :(

my Daughter was born in January of 07 and she speaks very well, she says full out sentences, knows basic shapes and colors, and can count to 10. I heard boys are usually slower at learning though, maybe its just taking him a little while.

My son Cooper's speach is improving day by day. He is saying many 3 word sentences, and much of what he says is easy to understand.

It seems like everyday a new work pops up, but there still are coherent sentences, just words here and there.

mine was born on the 12th.. he says mommom, "uck" which could be truck, stuck, or yuck...lol he says duck, dog, he tries to say please,cheese, juice, no. He can tell you what sounds a dog, cat, cow, & calf makes. I often feel like he's not saying enough, but I know he understands what I am saying and I can tell that he is trying to say certain words, just needs more practice at it.

I thought he didn't say a lot of words, but when I actually sat down and wrote them all...it was 88! Obviously they are not all clear, but they are the same words for the things he means. I wouldn't worry either...until like 3+.

Reece has been seeing a speech therapist for a few months now. He says "yeah" when asked a question. He just started with "no" about 3 weeks ago, and also "oh no" (which sounds more like no no). We've been teaching sign language to help him not get so frustrated and so he can try to tell us what he wants.

My son doesn't talk unless he wants to! He is very picky about who he talks to also. He won't say a word unless he can say it right! He has said things like Barbeque, I want mommy, or juice, and Please! But if he doesn't feel like talking he wont! I would give your little guy some time to take it all in before you worry about talking. Some kids just want to know it all before they start!

My twins Maddie and Asa have just started to make 3 or 4 word sentences just recently. However when you posted this question back in Feb they just had around 50 words each which they used very differently. Also having a boy and a girl of the same age I've noticed how differently they've acquired language. Maddie used words in context whereas until recently Asa just repeated the words that he liked eg "car" "hoover" "ball" over and over again. But now Maddie says things like "Need it now please" and Asa has also just started to make short sentences like this, but he's still less clear. I know other kids born around the same time who have more language and others who are at the same stage as mine. I'm not worrying about it though, twins are often a bit slower to start talking so they aren't doing so badly. Einstein didn't speak until he was 4 years old, so it just goes to show!

My son, Ryan still isn't talking, also very clumsy when he walks, we have seen a physiotherapist about his walking - he has low muscle tone. And are waiting for an apptointment to see the speach therapist :) but he does understand what i'm sayin.

My daughter was still not babbling by 18 months so I spoke to my doctor, he said not to worry until she was two, I didn' t let it rest and spoke to a health worker at my sons school, & I ended up finding out about the child development service that we have here in Qld.  She was seen by a speech therapist who determined that there was a speech delay, and I am currently doing a course to teach me how to teach her  to communicate better.  In one of our chats it came up about the what the doctor had said, and the therapist said to me that the "one thing that I have learned is that when mum thinks there is a problem there usually is!"



If you're concernced, give your local child health center a call and see if they can help :)

My 2 year old talks a lot and pretty clear. She has 3 older siblings so I think thats why. But it can also go the other way. If theres older siblings they tend to do the talking for them. Every child develops at their own speed. I've read that when he talks to you don't repeat back to him the way he said it repeat it back the right way and eventually he'll pick it up.

Kenneth says a few choice words, puppy, kitty, mommy, daddy, sissy, EEWWW, Peter, Baba(grandma), please, thank you, and more please. He will come to me and babble very seriously telling me something, wait for me to acknowlege and then turn and walk off. I have learned to understand what he is asking for with out him really talking. I try and encourage him to say words. So does my daughter its so cute like his own personal tutor. Ive been told not to worry. when our little guys get closer to 3yrs old they should be talking more. Or atleast thats what ive been told lol

Zane started talking very early and was using full scentences by 18 months.  He knows the sounds of all the letters, knows his ABCs, can count to 20, etc.  Everyone that sees him is completely amazed at how well he communicates.  That being said, all children are different and hit their milestones at different times.  Just because one child can talk early and another doesn't talk until, say three, that doesn't mean that one is necessarily smarter than the other.  If you are truly concerned I'd ask your pedi at his next visit.

Hi,



My daughter Reyna turned two last Jan.  She has been talking for at least 8 months.  She can count to 11 and can identify at least 3 colors.  Although, she does not conversate in complete sentences she does combine at least 4-5 words.  eg. "mommy, rey ouchie on back, kiss it please"  I know some children who are speak two languages take longer to develope sentences, if this applies.  You should check with your ped doctor.

My Simmy isn't talkin' much either...he has an older brother who speaks for him! Oddly enough when Rocky (his older brother) was his age, he wasn't talking much either. I just bought the Baby Babble & Baby Babble 2 dvd's - these are fantastic! The very first time he watched it, he was imitating what they were doing - it also gives us tips on how to help him progress. I highly recommend them!

I cant get my son to stop talking! Drives me crazy lol. well what i do is everything that i say to him i will say it once thru as though i m talkin to an adult... like "would you like some milk?" Then i ll say can you say that? lets say it together... and then i slow it down and say one word at a time while he watches how i m sayin it. after each word i would ask him to try to say it. we do it over and over. then about five minutes later ask him to try to say it again with a little less help from you. That way you can see if he is remembering the word sounds after you ve try to teach him. :) I dont know if you have already tried this or not, but I know it has worked with my son. There is hardly a word he cant say. :) Take care.

Freddie was talking a little around his first birthday, but then it all stopped. I asked the doc about it at his 2 year check up. They had a speech therapist come out and assess him through an early intervention program. His expressive speech was at a 12 month level, he is getting speech therapy once a week. He is already, showing signs that he wants to talk more. They are teaching him signs to use until he talks.

[deleted account]

My boys are not talking yet either.  One has started saying mama.  They are going to a speach therapist however IM getting the fealing that they just arent ready to talk yet.  I dont talk alot so I think they just dont see the urgency.  Why does it have to be so hard .. right:)  You just dont want your kids to struggle with anything.

My son is 17m and he only says "Dad" or "daddy." Although it sounds like he's try to carry on a conversation at times, we just cannot understand him. He just babbles something when he talks to me. However, he understands allot like read a book, clean-up, garbage can, brush your teeth, sleepy time, etc.

Well I was quite worried too as my son Hasan doesnt really say proper sentences yet either just words! I was telling my mum and dad, and my dad was like you know what I didnt start talking till I was 3 and I havent shut up since and my 83 now. nevertheless made me laugh.



I just think every child develops in their own time.

Im son never stops... says sentences, hes got no other siblings or family around him other than me... and coz I have no one to talk to I tend to talk to him all the time. I guess that is where he picked it up from... every child learns at their own rate.... I have a friend and her little boy is 5 and he still cant say words properly...

I think if you have a concern you should look into early intervention like someone mentioned earlier. My daughter also is not a talker and we have realized that there are a lot more problems than just her speech that I had no idea to look for or to mention. Early intervention is a great thing and I would recommend it to anyone that has a concern. My sister in law said the same as most on here are saying and now at 5 and 7 both of her younger children are in speech therapy at school. It doesn't hurt and then you won't worry anymore. If you go to blogspot you can look up my blog about my daughter it is called Kaytlins story.. Good luck with whatever you decide, follow your gut!

He will let you no when his ready to talk xx

My daughter speaks in complete sentences and asks for what ever she wants. She even has screaming fits saying ' no I don't want to do that////blablablabla'
She has been speaking since before she turned one year. I think she started speaking clearly around 6 months with just words. Every child is different though.

My son daniel was delayed with his talking....now he won't stop....lol...He had A LOT of ear infections from birth to 1 yr old...once we got the tubes in his ears...WOW...his speech took off.  Has Robert had any ear trouble (infections) and what does his Dr say about his progress....I know I was very worried that my son was really delayed in speech and our Doc told us if he wasn't talking by 2 we may look into speech therapy.  Anyway good luck and once he starts look out :-).

Don't worry about it :) It'll come when he's ready for it. My son started saying words when he was about 1,5 yrs, and he still doesn't talk full sentences yet. But after his 2nd birthday, the words just falled out of his mouth, and he's learning new words every day :)

Andrew has times when he speaks full, understandable sentences. other times i think he's speaking portuguese...they all go on their own pace...trust me when he starts the full blown talking, u will never get him to be quiet ever again!

[deleted account]

HI Di, Well my son has been talking since he was about 15 months old and today he is a chatter box (he's 2). Not sure if it's because we talked to him all the time and whenever he would point at something we would tell him what it was. I will be doing the same with my second who is only 12 weeks old. Just remember every child is different and will start talking when he's ready.

I would look into it. It's true that each child develops at their own pace, but you should also rule out a problem. I know a few moms that had this same worry, and it ended up that their kids had fluid in their ears and it was blocking them from hearing properly. In that case, they put in tubes and already have noticed a difference.



My son talks up a storm. He doesn't stop talking from the moment he wakes up until he falls asleep. As I suggested earlier, I would at least check it out, start by talking to your Pediatrician. Best of luck.

I too agree with most of the comments ... my daughter is two and is saying 3-4 word sentences. Each week she is so much clearer and learning more and more words. It is amazing the difference a month or two makes with her and her vocabulary. I would just mention this to your doctor and see what their thoughts are.

Thanks everyone, I wasn't worried just curious. He is the second child, he makes himself understood in other ways and just in the last week seems to comprehend absolutely everything that we say. My eldest, as eldest do, seemed to excel and Robbie is so much more laid back. It's not often that you can communicate with a large group of mothers with children the same age down to the month. Mothers being mothers love to talk about where their kids are at and I have enjoyed listening to you all talk proudly of your kids. Thank you once again.

Benjamin talks up a storm, complete sentences, alphabet, counts to 12 and can recognize the letters up to "G".  He has always been fast at everything, I know some of my friends children werent so fast due to the fact that they had older siblings that seemed to "talk" for them.

My son started talking really early. Of course he had his first tooth at 5 months and all his teeth by 15 months. I have been told that helps. Anyway my son talks all the time and pretty clearly too. I wouldn't worry though my nephew does about what you say your son is doing. All kids are different and will do it when they are ready. My son was born with a heart defect and didn't start walking till he was about 21 months old. I was worried that he would never walk even though his Doctors told me it was normal for babies with heart defects to be a little slower physcially. Anyway don't worry it will happen. One day he will probably just start talkin your ear off.

I was also worried with my daughter and her talking. The doctor told me that it was a matter of time. She was absorbing everything in and she would just start talking when she was ready. Now she is talking complete sentences and amazes me everyday. Just give it time, it will come.
