My son just turned 14 months and he really isen't talking yet. He says momma but thats about it, all he does is baby babble all day everyday. Should I worry? What can I do to get him talking more?

My nephew was the same it was just babbling you would get from him - im sure he knew what he was saying! My sister was getting quite concerned about it as he was almost 2 but she neednt have worried because literally over night he began saying all sorts of stuff clear as anything. My nephew is a bit shy so maybe this had something to do with it but there is certainly no stopping him now!

My little girl is the same age but not saying much either but she know how to get her point across so I'm not too worried. We will see what the doc says at the 15 month appt.

With my son, its just been a lot of repition of words. He's stating to talk quite well now, but before he even started talking it was just the mama dada thing for months i was worried myself, once he figured out that first word i noticed a lot of what he was "saying" was sounding like words not just babble. Give it time, im sure once he figures it out you'll realize a lot of that babble is him trying to say stuff =)

My little girl is also 14 Months a real chatter box she can say the normal things Mum Dad Hi shes quiet a cleaver little monkey and is starting to pick things up while my Partner and I are talking so we have to tread carefully and watch what we say around her otherwise something naughty may come out of her mouth at Day Care what seemed to work for her we always include her in conversations and we sing alot to her and shes picked things up from there

my daughter is i guess- "advanced" in the vocab depatment at 14 months she says about 50 words or so. She is even reading a few words- nose, wave, arms up, dog, cat. Last night her new one was "Gone" she is now saying it when shes done eating and her food is "gone". She does not say "mom"- that one hurts the heart LOL... Her latest saying is "I did it" or "Daddy did it" she's quite the talker, she even says our 4 dogs names- Dani, Harley-Jo (her nick name is Jo Jo so she calls her Jo Jo), Dolce and Gucci- YES she even says the last 2 names! Although she is advanced in her mental development, she does not walk unassisted yet. She took one step by herself just the other day, but thats it. We always talk to her, explain things to her, read to her, play LOTS of music, and NEVER baby talk. All kiddos are different, I have friends whos kids were walking at 10/11 months but saying 1 or 2 words. Where my daughter doesn't walk but at 10/11 months she had said about 20 words

You keep talking to your baby, I was amazed how my little one knows things, I used to show her the animal book and tell the animal names (lion, monkey, dog, sheep etc) and the sounds they make, e.g. instead of lion roars I used to says grrr and one fine day she just copied me, now when i ask her lion/tiger says? n she says grrr.... dog says oof oof, does not say woof...but i guess its good for her age. she also says mama, meme, baba, dada, papa, tach (touch)etc....

very normal - just enjoy him. Before long he'll be answering back and you'll want him to be 14months again ;P

My 14 month old has a vocabulary of a dozen or so words... when he went to see the ped. he had stopped talking all together and had me worried; she said by 24 months if he isn't saying anything then we would worry... we point to things and say what they are and he eventually starts to say them- everything BUT mom.... it's really depressing being the sole caregiver 90% of the time and not having a name (unless being called bob is the new name for mom.....)

Our son has just been picking up words like crazy lately, just keep on telling him everything your doing as you do it, and repeat the words over and over again. Pretty soon he'll start repeating them! Who knows he may even be saying a few things but you just can't recognize them as words yet...keep watching for signals! I hope this is helpful!

hi, i found getting some flash cards or printing pictures off the internet really helped. things like fish, cat, ba ba (baby), and juice. my son has been really receptive he is 14 months and full of words but slow in his walking etc.

My Son is almost 15 months and only says Mama, Dadda and "Wot dat" (What's that?) whilst pointing. I wouldn't worry too much, all babies develop differently and in a few months time you'll wish he was still babbling!! LOL!

My daughter isn't much of a real talker. She says mama and dada and other than that everything else is gaga with her pointing at it. She'll get it eventually i'm sure, i know she understands me.

My daughter is almost 14 months old and she is about the same as your son. Her pediatrician said not to worry when I asked him why she wasn't saying anything except momma. He said some kids just develop differently and don't start talking, sometimes until 18 months old. I don't think either of us have anything to worry about.
