he is only 10 months old.. dont hurry him, despite what the books say they will all develop and progress in there own time, enjoy the stuff he does do rather then focus on what he doesnt, make the most of bis baby days, they'll be gone in a blink.

Don't worry about it. Most children have a small vocabulary of about 25 to 50 words by the time they are two. If he understands what you are saying such as hi, I Love you, goodnight then the words will come. If there are other siblings they may be talking for him so he doesn't need to talk. Keep talking to him in an adult voice and not baby talk. Consistency is the key.

Hello, new moms, I have been reading your post concerning your little ones. As a mother of 2 adult and 1 teenage son. You will hear "mommy" enough in the coming years to make up for now. Hang in there, its well worth it all. LOL QueenD.

Every baby is different. My son is almsot 3 and he was talking really well but he didn't walk until 17 months. Something you might want to try...look up basic sign language, like "more" and "please". When you say the words, do the sign. That way when your little one does start talking more, they do it too! It helps when their words sound the same, less frustrating getting themselves understood :)

my youngest daughter, was the only one of my children not to start talking by 1 year. took her for hearing tests and was told she heard and understood perfectly well, a wide vocabulary, but just didnt bother to use the words. So just let your child hear conversations, and read to her and try to resist the urge to make child say words parrot fashion and they will one day use the words absorbed, when ready. So dont worry, my daughter eventually talked but till and is a real chatterbox now!

My oldest son didn't say any words at all until he was well over one. At 18 months, he was only saying a handful of words. By the time he was 2, he was speaking in 6-7 word sentences. So, it is nothing to worry about at all! Kids develop speech at different rates.

My son is 10 1/2 months and the only thing he has said way byebye while waving. But it was more like ba-ba, but we knew what he was trying to say.
He has not said mama, or dada, or anything else. I wouldn't be concerned. One day he will probably just start talking in whole sentences.

I would not worry about it at all. My girls did not like to repeat things very much at all and it was so muchwork to get them to say things even now... my son though repeats a lot but still is very stubborn and only does it on his terms. I would not worry especially since most babies first words are either dada or baba because the D and B is a much more natural sound than the m. Just keep working with your baby and it will come.
