My son will be 2 in a few weeks. He isn't much of a talker either. Everyone tells me that boys learn to talk much later than girls. I've also heard that if they walk early they will talk later. Not sure how true that is but my son walked at 11 months and is just not learning new words so fast. It seems these past 2 weeks he has really learned a lot. It's like a switch turned on for him. He still only says one word at time except for "night-night", "bye-bye" and "my bike" but the first 2 don't really count as 2 word sentences. What I did was make a list of all the words he has been saying throughout the day for a few days. I was really concerned about his talking until I did this. I found that he is saying over 40 words now! Maybe try making a list. You might find more words that your son is saying. Also, TV shows that teach reading like Word World and Super Why have helped my son a lot. I don't like Super Why because they change the classic stories but they teach the alphabet which is helping my son put sounds together to make words.

I wouldn't be to concerned but it you don't notice any new words in a month or two you can always talk to your pediatrician to see what options you can try.

Good luck!

I've heard that boys can be kind of slow to talk in comparrison to girls. I've heard that by two they should be putting two words together. My son is very similar, he can say words but not really sentenses.

My daughter is almost 3 years old, and has been talking for over a year. She can say everything from beautiful to the easiest words that we adults know. What I did was I allowed her to watch NickJr. from time to time, and she picked it up from there. She also enjoys watching movies like Wall-E and Shrek and can sometimes say some of the lines in the movies as well. Also, I have sat down with my daughter and talked with her, pointed out pictures in books, and she will repeat them. Those are the only things that I can think of that have helped my little one. Hope that helps you out some.
