Starting to talk?

I am worried about my baby girl's talking. She is starting to babble a lot which is a great sign- half of which I can not understand, but I go along with it. She is my second, but big sister doesn't talk for her ( I know, I used to do this for my sister.) She is starting to point and prefer things so my husband and I are repeating and pointing out. She can say mama- but instead says nana, dada, meow, wat da?, baba, up up, yeh and NOOOOOOO and then the rest is wailing or screaming. My first did EVERYTHING early and it seems Ku is taking her time. I just heard girls (like first) are early talkers. Ku crawled at 15 months, walked at 18 months, running now, she is very cautious. I'm concerned, but not worried, any similar experiences?

My daughter is 23 months and did most things early except for talk. she still only says mama and dada. We have had an early intervention program come in to work with her for 2 months now and she is finally starting to point at things she wants. I think you know your child better then anyone if you are concerned follow threw and have her checked out. I didnt listen when people kept saying she will talk when she has something to say and I am glad. We are now on a waiting list to see a dev ped to have her tested for something called apraxia and for autism. Moms know.

My little girl same age is exactly the same. My 4 year old started early, knew her numbers, letters and HEAPS of words!!! My second who is 22 months doesn't say much besides mama, dada, Nonna, papa, there, up, Dow (down) Rara (Bianca: her sister), nina (a word used in an Italian song for her to go to sleep), car, nooooo and a few others which I recognize but others wouldn't. She also babbles heaps and screams to get attention!!! In the same boat as you...dont stress, in no time she will be talking your head off and you won't be able to stop her xo

I think the guideline is that if they dont start talking before / around they are 2-2.5 years, get them assessed :). Chloe is only really just starting to say a few things in the last month or two, before that was a few words and babble mainly. She now says - mama, daddy, hello, bye bye, yes, no, door, ball, bowl, ninda (ninja-our cats name), there there (when hugging), and yo-yo! I think that is all. Most of those she just started saying in the last month

I wouldn't worry at all! My 3 year old was talking by 15 months and my 22 month old started much later but started with bigger words like helicopter, airplane etc not one for the mama, dada thing (but he's been saying dada forever now) and now in the month he's talking up a storm, so I wouldn't worry at all your doing a great job and she'll talk when she's ready :)

Each child develops at their own pace. My first and second children did not walk until 18 & 19 months respectively, my third started at 10 months. My first child started "taiking" (baby talk) at around 23-24 months, my second, NOT ONE word until three (now we can get him to shut up, LOL) my third, she speaks in complete sentences at 21 mos. Each child is their own person.
