My daughter just turned 18 months, with that, she also seems to be 'losing words'. She used to say 'monkey' very well and everyone could understand her, now instead of saying it 'mon-key' she says 'bobbie' which she always says for 'bunny'. She also says 'dooty' instead of 'movie' and she used to say movie very well too. It seems as she is gaining words, she stops pronouncing words like she used to. She hasn't had her 18 month check up yet, but I just wanted some thoughts on this. Has this happened to anyone else before? I read to her a lot, we don't watch TV, besides the occasional movie. I interact with her daily, so I don't understand why the sudden loss of words. Other than a few words she doesn't pronounce the right way anymore, she can say over 100+ others, do you think all of them will end up 'baby babble'? Thanks.
