Don't worry yet. They say to bring it up with your doctor, especially if they aren't talking by the time they are two. I would start with a hearing test. My son had issues with his speech and ended up needing tubes because of the fluid in his ears. The sooner you start talking to your doctor the better. Good Luck.

If she still isn't saying at least 5 words by the time she turns 2, express your concern to your doctor. Mama and Dada should only be counted as words when she says them to the correct person. If she hasn't made that association yet, then she is just babbling.
