My daughter was born on October 27th and is a little over 14mo and is still not communicating very well... just mama and dada and uh-oh. Just curious as to what your little ones are saying at this age?

My daughter is 15 months & saying only those same 3 words. I've noticed lots of other kids her age and younger saying more, but everyone develops differently. It has reassured me that she definitely understands a lot of what I say even though she is not saying much.

My daughter is 15 months, so far she only says mama and dada. But she understands when we tell her to go get something or do something. My 4 year old was the same, understood but didnt speak then one day she started talking and has never stopped!

My daughter is 15 1/2 months and is only saying mama, dada, and uh-oh too. She is pointing and saying lots of sounds but no other words yet. Our doctor said that the next 3 months will be a huge change so be patient!!

My daughter was bron on the 26th. She says: mummy, dada, Addy (her name), no, cat, cow, shoe, fish, monkey, bird, bath,ball, ma, water, juice, bottle, names of family members,Barney etc. She sings Twinke twinkle little star and most of the Barney song. She can go upto C/D of the alphabet song. She can mimic most words and says short sentences like 'oh my word'. She knows the sounds that 4 animals make. She understands most instructions..'fetch your shoes/pillow/bottle/juice, etc.

My daughter says up, dada, daddy, mumma, and baba...She understands everything and is starting to make awesome faces good and bad when things aren't the way she expected them to be. The understanding is more important to me than the speaking. She will speak when she is ready. She has to older sisters and they speak and yell enough for an entire cheering squad...Perhaps she is giving them their chance to speak before she starts...lol

Our daughter was born on the 12th of Oct and she is saying words such as mama, dada, dunda (which is her great aunt) she also says Lucy our dogs name, dawg for dog, she says our oldest daughters name azelia as Aya and she is speaking a little spanish as we are teaching that to her as well, because we are a spanish speaking family. She definitely understands what we say to her better in spanish then in english.

My daughter was born on October 26th 2008, and she also is not communicating very well...hardly anthing...just "paki"...and that means papi(dad)...and that is it...I see other kids around her age and there all over talking and I at times feel like I'm not doing my job well...but I have came to the conclusion that every baby is different and she will start talking when she wants to....Your not alone Susie:)

My daughter was born October 25th. She isnt saying much but will say mama, dada, bye-bye, and HI when she wants to. She has begun to point to her nose, eyes, ears, and mouth when you ask her what they are. I am looking forward to her being able to say something but then im not because since my 7 year old started talking he hasn't stopped LOL

my daughter is doing the same thing she was born on the 25th but she has started walking and petting stuff together like with her toys that has things you put toys into climbing up onto the furniture so on and so on. so if your daughter is doing any of these things that is normal. my mom worked for a company that helps with children's development you might want to see if there is a program that is in your area that can give you extra information on what to look for. in my area it is called the partnership for children.

my son was born oct. 29th of 08 and he can say mama dada touch, cat, kitty, clock yea, what i did was any time he would point to something or try to play with something like my cordless digital clock i'd keep saying clock untill he tried to say it, cat was easy they allways came into sight yea i think he just hear us say all the time.. I also sound out the word like mama i'd say ma ma ma mama ma ma ma ma and he finally got it but if your frustrated at the time dont try it then they'll know and it might make them not want to try. 9not to say you've been doing that) hope this helps

My son was born on October 10 and just babbles with words like mama, dada there and yaya and says mmmmm wherever he is hungry. I would not worry about it. My daughter (who is now 12) started talking at 13 months. They have their own pace and like I said don't worry too much.

It is too early to be concerend about your daughters vocabulary. Every child develops at different times. I know you have heard htis but you need to beleive it :) I have friends who's children are over 2 years old who still can't say much but I am sure they will when they feel like it!

My daughter was born on Oct 7th. And she says Mama, Dada, my daddy, hand, up, down, cheese, blueberry (although it comes out boo bry) please thanks (tanks) all done, no more, no (very well) woov woov (for our dog) I started her on those DVD'S" Your Baby Can Read", and my goodness they certainly work. She can repeat most words

she hears on the DVD and when we speak to her she tries to copy what we say as well. All children learn to talk at different stages, you'll be suprised.... one day she will start chattin your ear off, repeating words you say :0)

My little girl is the same age and all she says is "mama" "dada" and the occasional "hi." At a 11 months she had a six word vocabulary, but she's stopped talking. She's pretty good at nonverbal communication and has nearly perfect comprehension, but she has no interest whatsoever in talking.

i wouldnt worry too much.. my little fella hardly says anything either... he only says mum and dada every now and then.. he has been trying to say 'zac' for a while..( thats his older brother) and he has started saying what sounds like 'thanks' when he is givin something. he does say 'yeah' a fair bit these days!! lol i think by about 18 months their speech is a bit more obvious. i cant really remember. its been 8 years since i had a baby!!!

My 15 month old is saying quite a few words... mama, dada, kitty, mine, uh-oh, meow, woof, hi, hello, yeah, no, fishy, ducky, mote (as in, the remote control), Dug (as in, the dog from Up), milk, water, cup, diaper (comes out "dipe dipe"), bye bye, nose, eyes, hair, socks, shoe, coat, night night, church, and a few more that I'm blanking on right now. She started trying to verbalize really early, though, and said mama at 7 months. Of course, she didn't walk until she was almost 13 months, so they just all go at their own pace with all of this stuff. :)

My Caden is 15mnths old and he hasn't really started with words so much. He gestures and makes noises as to what he wants. He'll say the usual mama, dada and when he sees a fire he says hot without the t sound. He understands what I am saying to him, so I think it's just a matter of time and just like walking, it'll start and you won't be able to stop it...lol.

My daughter was born the 29th and she doesn't say much... As a matter of fact the doctor said if by 18 months shes not talking more he wants her ears tested again... Well there is nothing wrong with her hearing... She hears EVERYTHNG! She hmmm's and mmmm's to almost everything. She has said a few words... I am ma and theres da (daddy), she has said these words occasionally but not on a regular basis: peas (please), hi, bye, shhh, baby... Once it sounded like she said all done as she handed her dad her plate... but thats about it.



We have read that she might develop speech later due to her older siblings are ages 12 and 9 so she really doesn't need to speak... everyone talks for her and knows what she wants by just her gestures.

My daughter was born close to urs, October 7. She doesn't communicate as well as my older daugher did at this age... she is now 2-1/2. My 15 month old has been using words more frequently now, but you can usually hear her say "mama... dada... no... puffs...down..." and just the other day she said her name. They will get better at it, just practice with her. I attribute some of it because I was a stay-at-home mom with my oldest, and I was only at home with my youngest for 6 months.

My daughter was born on the 29th and a little over 14 months too. She babbles all the time, but like your daughter doesn't say very many words. It seems like she wants to and her tone changes when she talks to her babies or my dogs, but mama, dada, and chi-chi for my dog Charlotte are the only words so far.

Mine was born Oct 29, 5 weeks early. She doesn't say much, but understands what we say. She says "up" annnnd that's pretty much it lol I'm not worried about her at all...they all learn at their own pace. Sad to say that my older daughter who will be 13 this year was a very early walker and talker is dumber than a stump now, constantly fighting with her and her grades...so don't worry about it. lmao...My son who was also late at doing everything is more intelligent than his sister. HA! My 15 month old is also just starting to walk so i'm thinking i'll have a genius on my hands come 5 years old *snicker* Seriously...don't worry about it...enjoy them at this age when you can :)

I have 2 daughters, 8 and 15 months (born 10/3/2008) and I think it helps that my youngest has an older sibling and there are multiple adults around her at all times. She says mama, dada, milk, juice, dog, cat, hot, cold, ice cream, bananas, apple, train, airplane, shoes, pants, shirt, and so on...she knows and names all of her body parts and some of her favorite characters, like sponge bob, mickey mouse, pooh...

My son Ryan was born on Oct 21st and at the moment all he says is da da da dadadad and cries mumumumum when he's upset. I figure he'll talk in his own time. He's constantly around other childeren and all the family at weekends so there's no shortage of him being taught new words.

My Robert was born October 21. He uses primarily sign language to communicate. He has a few words / phrases, but mostly just sounds. He does know bubye quite well! It is one of his favorites. My older son didn't speak much till after he turned two years so I am not yet concerned.

my daughter was born 10-6 and still is not speaking. She says Mum, and Da, but nothing else. She's our 2nd (our son is 16) but he spoke much sooner. The Dr. is sending us to an Audiologist and for speech therapy... but she does not seem to have any issues. We were told we are babying her...

My son was born Oct 28th. He says quite a few words, maybe as many as 20. However, his brother who is now 4, said very few words at that age. Not much more than mama and dada. Their cousin said NOTHING until after she was two. Now 5, she is in the advanced group in her class. The point being they develop at their own rate. I certainly would not worry at this point.

Hi there...don't worry Susie I'm sure once your little angel catches on you will not be able to keep her quite ;-)

Annika was born on the 7th of Oct and she never stops...from gogga, myne, koekie, horlose, Tjiekie, Ouma oupa, Hennie, tamatie - she calls matie, her own name - she calls herself Annie, up, down we sing twinkle twinkle little star and a few songs...but I'm fortunate to be with her 24/7 and I don't stop talking ;-)

even in the shops we chat the whole time and sing...people must think I'm crazy but its actually alot of fun...

good luck with your little one...I know a little boy that can bearly say mamma and pappa and he is the same age as Annika...each little one develops differently....o yes we got her a sticker book which she luves with animals and stuff...try that to...

HAVE FUN!!!!

My little one is the same, born 27th October. He was walking from 9 months so I think he was concentrating more on that then talking. He mostly points at things and holds out his hand for me or his dad to follow him. He is talking more now, mostly da-da but sometimes mum. He also makes a lot of animal noises, even though considering we only have a cat, he is yet to meow, lol. He is picking more up and repeats words quite well bu doesn't say them on his own...give it time. Wait til he is in his teens and you'll be wishing he was quiet again, haha.

my son was born on Oct 17th, as the weeks go on he learns more because my mother-in-law runs a day-home so he has lots of kids to teach him. He says bath, dad, mom, uh-oh, ow, fish, hi-ya (hi), and "ga" (yah) and a few other babbles. she'll learn as she hears you and others around her talk. I definately wouldn't worry!
