Ok so my daughter turned 3 march 24th and I was just wondering a few things so I have 2 questions !..one being her speech..I think its perfect she understands ppl completely n she does talk but every now and then she baby babbles still and messes up on sentences I was wonderin what age do dey stop baby babble n speak in clear complete sentences?

My next question is I'm having her evaluated for adhd because she has random outbursts, can't seem to calm down on her own and is easily frustrated so I came across adhd because wen I was pregnant with her I had gestational dabetes and I read that adhd and jaundice is a high cause for babies like that n she did have jaundice when she was born. So to me it kinda adds up but ino most toddlers aren't evaluated til at last 5 and was wondering if any other moms have a toddler who is 3 and they do have. Child with adhd and what are you doing for it ?-thanks!

I honestly don't know. None of my kids have food allergies. I know that is I give them sugar they go a bit crazy and energetic for a while though. It just might be something to look into, maybe keep a food diary for a week or 2 and see if anything sets her off. It's worth a try.

She is actually lactose intolerant so she is on a lactaid diet do yu think that has anythin to do with it?

How about looking at her diet as well instead of just assuming it's ADHD. Look at what happens just before the outbursts and see if you can find the trigger.



As for the talking, she probably just has heaps to say and can't get it all out. She will talk properly in her own time but you can also get her to stop and think about what she wants to say first.
