My daughter and I used to live at an apartment with hardwood floors. While we lived there she slipped and fell a lot. I would notify her dr every time it happened, and was told to give her Tylenol and to take her to the er if she fell asleep and wouldn't wake up. After a while i realized that my daughter (who before this apartment would say "What is that?") had stopped talking altogether. We have since then moved and her words are coming back, but now the dr is concerned. the dr told me that if she's no saying 30-40 words and making short sentences by the time shes 3, they would like her to see a speech therapist. My husband on the other hand says not to worry, he and his siblings "were slow learners" (his words.) What can I do to stimulate my daughter to talk? Or should I just relax and let her talk on her own?
