Hello everyone, i am new here and looking forward to everyones support!
My youngest son will be three in june. Ive always noticed he was a bit more behind in doing things than my oldest but never worried bc all kids develop in their own time. But ive been worried more lately bc hes just not talking. He will repeat words when he feels like it. He responds to his name he responds to "no" and other things. My mother tells me not to worry she says my sister n nephew didnt talk till they were three and even i sounded like i spoke a different language till i was three. But it is getting really close to his third bday and hes still where he was six months ago. My oldest i had in daycare from the time he was a baby but with this one we just cant afford it and i try to work with him but to no avail. I was looking into speech therapy but i dunno if im jumping the gun. They say einstein didnt talk till he was four. lol Should i be more patient? Am i comparing him to my first child who even in second grade excels beyond his years? Im so worried he may be autistic but everyone tells me im overreacting. Alsobsome things i didnt mention...he still isnt potty trained he shows no interest. He also finds comfort in his bottle still which we have been working on and he mainly just holds it now for security i suppose.
help!! i feel like the worst mother ever and feel like its my fault. Thanks in advance for the support.
