My little girl with be 15 months old on Saturday, and she does not talk at all. Not evern Mama & Dada. Everyone tells me not to worry, but how can I not. She seems to understand what you say, she shakes he head yes or no, when you ask her things. We started teaching her sign language, so far she ony know "more" and "all done" She responds to juice, but doesn't do the motion. .

We are seeingthe doctor next Thursday for her 15 month checkup, he has said at 12 months when I brought it up, that she shouls have 3 words by now. I am just so worried and I dn't want to let it go, if there is something I can do to help. Any suggestions?

some kids are bashful is she in daycare? did she walk early does she eat whole foods.. there are certain milestones the just take a step at a time and some come faster than others for some kids girls are stubborn if she doesnt have to talk she wont. encourage talking dont just give things to her tell her what they are as you hand them to her look her in the eyes say it multiple times she will get it

I wouldn't worry about it at 15 month. My oldest didn't say any words at that age either, she just signed words. She started saying words at 20 months and now at 2 1/2 I can't get her to be quiet. :)

every baby is different but it you are worried about it you can call early intervention. They send someone over to your house to see if they can help. If they think that it is bad enough then they will have a speach therapist come over. I had to do this with one of my kids and he now talks fine. Good Luck. :)

Every baby is different. My son is almost 13mos and he still can't crawl. But low and behold he has taken his first steps! We were panicking for a bit thinking something was wrong with him. I'm sure one day soon

all her talking will drive you crazy!

Lots of singing and repeating tends to get them going. Try using puppets and repeating a rhyme or song with easy sounds. Apparently play is best for teaching. Or an educational video like Baby Einsteins with repetetive words and you sit and make the sounds with her. When I dry my son off after his bath he lies on our bed and we take turns immitating each others sounds. Does she make any sounds at all? Maybe try immitating her and she might se it as a connection and try to copy you. Good luck:)

I don't think I'd worry...she's babbling and understanding a lot of what you say...and she's responsive. 15 months isn't a worrisome age to not be talking anyways.

My son didn't really try to talk until 18 months. He could say 5 words when he turned 2 - mama, dada, shoe, bye bye, dog - and I worried a lot. But, something must have clicked when he was 2 1/2 because that's when he starting saying new words every day.

Every child is different give her time, my daughter was saying mama and dada at 8 or 9 months. My 2nd child her first word was stop and she started much younger they do things at different intervals. One day you will wake up and she will surprise you and start talking. As long as she understands what your telling her everything will be ok.
