My sixteen month old is still just babbling away to himself and no words. He seems to understands certain things like when i say no to hom or look at certain things. He dosent respond very well to his name but i use it alot. He does use a dummy alot during the day which ive tried to cut down on but that can make him very cross at times til hes gets it again. If he wants something or my attention he will cry or try to get me to pick him up. The only time de does say mam is usually first thing in mourning when hes hungry wanting to get out of his cot, but isnt consistent. Im worried now as his ciusin is only eleven months and hes can say one or two words clearly. I do talk to him alot but he gets distracted easily or wont look at me when i repeat simple words to him.
