My 18 month old Not talking

Hello moms ,

I have an 18 month old son and he does not speak many words. He says "eat eat" , "dada" , "dog" and he babbles some more baby talk but that is about it. He is very aware of his surroundings and he seems very smart but he just can't get the words down packed. I try to get him to say more words I speak to him in complete sentences and tell him what everything is . Is there something I'm doin wrong or that I could do better ? Is he behind ??

There is extreme growth in speech from 18 mos. to 2 yrs/ 2.5 yrs. Right now he sounds like a normal 18 mos. old. If by 2 yrs old he has not gained in vocabulary then it might be time to look at hearing and speech evaluations. But right now he is like most 18 mos. olds saying a few words with most being understood by only you or hard to understand by anyone.
