My 18 month old isn't saying words at all. She babbles but she doesn't say words except "dada" and im not even sure if she associates that with her father. I try to point out stuff to her and she doesnt look at the object but my hand. And she never points to tell me something, like say a cup. I tried talking to her father about maybe she might have a problem or speech delay( i had one too at that age) but he and everyone else thinks she's fine, she's a baby she'll get it eventually.
But im so worried its eating me inside and because of financial problems we haven't been to the doctors since about may and won't go til probably mid august. I know that it may take babies a while to speak but i keep reading she should have SOME VOCABULARY, like 5 words and she has none at all.
Has this happen to anyone?
EDIT:I forgot to say, she can comprend some things said to her such as 'sit down' and 'come here' but doesn't respond to things like, go get your cup or the ball.
