There's really a huge variance when it comes to talking. My son started talking at 10 months and my friends son who is the same age didn't start talking until well after he turned 1. Most children don't fully talk until about 3 1/2.

My son didn't speak until about 18 months as well... the doc said if he wasn't starting to say anything soon then we should probably see a speech specialist. He started with a few words, then he exploded! He's 2 1/2 and is very advanced in his speech. So you never know! Just keep pretending you're having a convo with him, it helps!

All babies are different. I've heard from multiple people that boys usually start talking later than girls do. My son did the same thing for the longest time, just saying words like ball, mama, eat, and car. But since he turned 2, he has rapidly progressed. I think the best thing you can do is just talk normally to him (not baby talk) and when you don't understand what he's saying, pretend that you do and talk back to him (like you said you're already doing). And don't worry about him because every baby does things in their own time. If they're not as quick as other babies in some areas, you'll see that they're much more advanced in other areas.

My son started putting small sentences together at about 2, but now that he is 3 we can almost carry on a conversation. He isn't very understandable to most people, but he gets better everyday...it just really depends on the child.

My son was about 18 months old when he started putting words together.. But by 2 he had a full vocabulary. But all little ones move at different paces! He's cute by the way!
