you've done nothing wrong don't feel like that,my son will be 2 at the end of the month and only says 'mum' and 'dad' but not clearly,he mostly chats away in his own language and he screams alot!!I have done everything the health visitor as suggested and he still doesn't respond...I was talking to my cousin and she says her son was exactly the same and didn't start talking until he started nursery at 3 yrs old and seemed to start in full sentances...I am hopeful and believe my son will talk when he's good and ready and I'll soon be telling him to sshhh!! :)

Had his hearing checked? Teach him sign language ... just a few basic words, food, more, finished, Mom ...that is a good first step for many kids, but if you are getting no words and no effort at 2+ years, I'd have him checked out. Don't they do hearing screenings at well baby check ups?
