Hey guys, I'm very new to this, I have a 19 month old son who babbles up a storm but really doesn't say much other than mama, and my mommy. He shakes his head yes and no, and points to what he wants/needs, he brings things to me and my husband to show us, but he's just not talking.
We went to his 18 month check up last week and the doctor said that if he understands whats going on and follows direction I shouldn't be concerned(but I can't help but be concerned), and we will revisit it if there still an issue at his 2 year check up. He does understand, and follows 2 and 3 step direction without a problem, I just wish I knew how to get him talking. I never stop talking to him about anything and everything, and we read stories, play games.
Any one have any suggestions, ideas how to get my little man talking?? Thank you!
