My daughter doesn't talk much, but when she does it is in full sentences. Or she says odd words, yesterday she said "She's a Mermaid" I was like, ok....then, a few moments after that, she said, "She's broken!" Clear as a bell. But she won't say yes or no or cup or up or any little simple words. I am more frusterated than worried. We did have a ECFE group come and they said she will talk when she wants to. Which I agree with, in the end, I am more frusterated than she is. But, I also anticipate her needs way too much and I am working on that so I don't do it so much and kinda force her to talk.

But, all kids are different, I know people who had full sentences at 1 and some nothing till 2 1/2 or even 3. It all depends on the kid.

I know my daughter understands EVERYTHING, she just doesn't feel like talking, and I know when she does, I won't be able to stop her!

I'm not sure exactly how many words, but my son is stringing together simple sentences and knows multi-syllable words. If you have any concerns over her speech development I would make sure to talk to her doctor and/or seek out a speech therapy consultation. Good luck!

I dont know about 50 words but my son was born April 12th and he is definately the little talker, I know what he wants and he repeats everything. he started talking fully at 20 months. If in doubt you can always ask a doctor
