my son was 2 on the 12th and he just got an appointment with a speech therapist but I cancelled it. Im going to give him 3 more months I know he hears find we have had it tested and I recently counted his words and there are about I just took a piece of paper and wrote down every time I heard a word. I got out his flash cards and he knew more than I thought he did I would have though he knew 20 words. he can also count to 9 I think with my son its about wanting to more than weather he can or not. my son doesn't say mum but he will say seriously and hello gorgeous !! he wont ask for a drink but he will say OH EWAN! LOVE YOU I noticed in writing these things down he says words he gets a reaction from not the boring old every days ones so now Im working on reacting over dramatically every time he says Drink or hungry .. good luck

My daughter doesn't say much either. She can say the dog's name, and tell her to "go." And being a 2 year old she says "no" and "Don't" a lot. I asked my Pediatrician about it at her well baby visit, and he gave me a number to call to get her tested. However it is possible she say's more but I just don't understand it.

Just remember that all children develop at their own rate. My boy was saying words at 17 months but only in the past few weeks (he was two yesterday) he's started parroting what we say and remembering things and putting words together. Now we can have a conversation of sorts. However, his friends can do other stuff that he struggles with, like recognising shapes. They are all different and you'll probably find that suddenly she's rabbiting on like she's always done it.

I read all of these comments. Every speech therapist would tell you if there is anything 'wrong' with your child, that is the easiest way to help yourself (and after that your son too). But if you really want to help your child, in my opinion, you should talk with your child as much as he really speaks and the way you are communicating shouldn't be childlish (use full sentences, grammaticaly correct...), everithing what you are doing say, name it, talk, talk, talk... read your child as much as you can and as much as he can (you should know that before you say something you should understand it), the more your child is listening your language the possibility to start to talk is increasing (check the ears, maybe the problem is hearing, but you notice that up to now- loud voice, music, does he listening when you are shouting...) and you should know that every human being is different, you cannot write book for every child in particular, maybe in your family there is someone who didn't start to talk 'on time'... for some child 'on time' is third year, for the other it is 2nd year, for some other it is the first year, but you should not be worried if you can communicate with him, if he understan what you are saying by words and if you understand him, he will talk, just give hime a time:)

if you need more advises be free to ask...

My son is turning 2 on the 25th of January and was born with fluid in his ears. His ears are perfectly fine now, took about 6 weeks for the fluid to naturally flow out. Anyway, he is now starting to talk a lot. Putting words together and so on. I panicked when he was 18 months and only talking a little bit. I called my ped and they said his speech should pick up more when he turns 2. Also they said they never worry until the child is 2 1/2 and hardly talking. I'm sure everything is just fine with your little one! Its so easy to worry though, believe me!

My son will be 2 in January and he doesn't say much either. He sometimes says one or two simple words but that's it. I don't know if his attachment to his pacifier until he was 20 months old might have delayed his speech.

My son was close to 2 before he really started talking... My daughter on the other hand was a little over one. And neither one has shut up since. lol Each one is different. With my son I got tired of him "grunting" at me so I started making him tell me what he wanted and if he did'nt then he did not get what it was he wanted. He quickly found out how to talk! good luck and unless she is showing signs of other delays I would not worry. I bet you'll be back on here in a few months trying to figure out to to keep her quiet! lol

My son is about the same way his words consist of mommy, bobbo, hi, bye, and snack! Oh and he knows the sign for more and please. But I've been told boys are behind on speaking full sentences.
