my 2nd sept 07 baby is speaking in sentences and you can hold a conversation with her. A few words still dont make sense but she uses a wide range of words

My sept 4th baby says practically nothing and we are on the waiting list for a speech therapy assesment.

He was a premie though and was slow to do most things, he does say two three and nanna which is his sisters name (actually its rhianna but you get where he's going with it).

I'm not overly worried about his speech because as with everything he does he'll get there eventually and he's starting pre school in a couple of weeks and i'm confident that will bring him on anyway.

Quoting Christine:

Not many. Maybe 4 or 5.



I'm in the same boat and it's frustrating.  I'm not worried about hearing problems.  She follows directions just fine.  She simply refuses to talk.  Including 5 baby signs she has a total of 12 words.

My September babies are twin boys born on the 14th. One is adding 5-6 words a day it seems and speaking in short sentences. The other just uses mostly single words, but can definitely get his point across. He is more physically expressive. They both sing a lot of songs though, and this is new, so very exciting!

Our son is a motor baby, he can do everything on his own but he's not talking. He will sign what he needs, but just won't say anything.

I hope that he starts talking soon, don't want to have to go the speech therapy route. Any ideas??

My son Wyatt has a whole lot to say, but very rarely can you understand anything he says. He is learning a few signs and going to speech therapy so we understand him a little more all the time. It's been hard, but I know he hears and understands everything just fine, so we try not to worry. I'm sure once he really starts talking, he isn't going to stop!

Mine is not saying much at all. He is getting evaluated on Tuesday. He has had a lot of ear infections and has had two sets of tubes in his ears. His hearing is fine, I am very anxious to see what the evaluation says about his speech. He is my second child, and only has about 3 words he will say. I will ask him to say something and he will shake his head no. Very concerned!

My september 07 baby is talking fluently. She can say almost anything she wants. Sometimes the words she is using are quite funny though :) but she is saying about 4-5 word sentences. :)

Quoting Krista:

Unfortunately, not a lot. He's actually going in for a hearing test this Tuesday. I don't think that's the problem, however. I actually think it's my fault. He's my first born and therefore I have a lot of time to dote on him. I happen to think that because I always instinctively know what he wants, he doesn't have to ask for it so he hasn't got the need to talk. As well, he's a "do-er". He learns by doing instead of asking. For now, I'm ok with his lack of words, but if it keeps on (given that the hearing test comes back normal) I'll seek out a speech therapist.



You should get in touch with the speech therapist right away.  I had my assessment 6 months ago and I'm still on the waiting list for home therapy.

My September 30 baby is talking in full sentences and he will repeat any words or sentences that he hears from us.

I've lost count. He's speaking now in 5 or 6 word sentences, acting out any missing verbs from the sentences. He also had a multitude of ear infections as an infant but 2 sets of tubes later... My suggestion on the ear tubes, if you know your kid needs them, push them through the medical system on your own if you have a resistant doctor. I had a family doctor for my son (because our original Ped moved) and she just wanted to throw antibiotics at him until he finally became allergic to some.

I'm astounded by his vocabulary every day. Last night, we walked around the house and I pointed out things around and asked him what they were, and he knew almost all of them. He tried the words he didn't know. He loves being able to communicate with us, and we do too!

My daughter Sarah spoke about 40 words when she was 18-20 months and is just starting to say 2-3 word sentences.

My daughter Kayla is speaking in broken sentences. She speaks English and French. I would say between 100-200 words.

John is saying loads of words, but he has his older brother teaching him. They have little conversations all the time- My older one was much slower to speak. He also had many ear infections and tubes. I think that there is a difference between how quickly girls and boys speak. And also if there are children close in age that help to bridge the gap between adult conversation and toddler babble. My dr. says that every child develops at their own pace and not to really worry.

Olivia is talking in sentences too. A lot of times she is repeating her 5 year-old brother, but she does make her own sentences too. I knew she could name body parts but was surprised to find she knew colors too. And she loves to converse on the phone. I don't think it's as important that they know a lot of words is that they can successfully communicate their needs or begin to socialize with other kids and family members.

my september 11th baby is talking in sentences already! not sure how many words are in the sentence but he caught onto talking really quickly. Don't rush them on talking because once they start they learn all the words that you don't want to hear first...prime example....NO....lol.

I cannot count any more. Jannis is already talking 4-word-sentences. He´s way faster than his older brother, keeps up with new words every day and is already speaking clearly and understandable.

My September baby is a preemie he was due in December but I think he has a great vocabulary. I was concerned when he was 18 months (15 corrected age) and he was saying just a few words. However, his early intervention specialist said it was normal especially since he has an older brother that speaks for him. With time and patience his vocabulary blossomed he now speaks in 2 word sentences.

My daughter was born on the 12th and she says...gosh I don't even know how many words! She has a word for pretty much everything, she can speak in up to 6 word sentences.

My son is saying about 32 words, he will be 2 years old on September 5th. When he was 18 months old he wasn't really talking, so I was seen by a speech pathologist. I'm on the waiting list for more services but in the mean time she gave me a lot of really helpful tips which I definitely think have worked. Once he started to talk he started learning more really quickly.

Wow twins would be interesting!! My older son and I both have tubes in our ears so I'm just waiting until September when my daughter goes to the ear specialist... should be interesting.. She's had many ear infections but the family doctor is "ignoring" them so I talked to my ear doctor myself so hopefully all goes well.

My Sept 07 babies are girl/ boy twins. Lily is speaking in short sentences, uses baby sign language, and comes up with tons of new words every day. Patrick, has maybe 6 words that he rarely uses. He had quite a few ear infections last fall/winter that has really slowed things down and he will probably be seeing a speech therapist this fall. He has had a couple of hearing tests and we have determined that he is now hearing just fine. I think part of his issues are due to the ear infections last year slowing things down, partly because he is a boy (normal for them to be slower to talk) and partly because he is happy in his own little world.



It really depends on the individual child. As I keep reminding myself, each time I compare the twins to each other LOL!
