Everytime I go into a well baby check up they ask if my son can say so many words, and of course my answer is "no" He says the regular mama, dada and stuff like that but no actual words yet. I have two older daughters aged 6 and 3 and they talk nonstop. So, I shouldn't worry about him not talking yet, but in the back of my mind I wonder to myself " why doesn't he talk yet ?" I'm not too worried but it still bothers me that he doesn't say real words!! He walked early on and he was early on all the other milestones that babies go through so, why so late at talking?? Any advice?? Or even just words of confidence that all babies are different and he will eventually talk. I feel like something is wrong when I tell my doc that he doesn't talk and I am afraid my doc will tell me he should be talking by now! Am I just being a worry wart or could there be something wrong??
