I have a 14 month old girl who says mama mainly. When she is in her crib I can here her say dada but she will not say it to us. She says more for food or drink. Used to say baba but has stopped, thats about it. How can I get her to talk? She communicates great and knows what she wants and how to get it but I want her to talk.. Any suggestions?

Most children at this sge don't say much. Some don't say much of anything until around the age of two. Mama, dada, hi, bye are common. Don't rush her, she will talk more when she is ready. Just keep talking to her to get her familiar with words and point things out to her and tell her what they are.
