View Full Version : nealry 10 months and not talking
Hi my Ds is almost 10months and still nt saying ma or da or ba or ga or any of those sounds. He did pass the hearing test at the hospital and does turn to his name when called so im not worried about hearing, but im just wondering what im doing wrong for him not to want to talk. I read and talk to him.. he does sqweal( is this considered to be babble though?) alot and very loudly too, just wondering if this is too late or when your babe started to do this cos i know they do start from 6 months?
my ds just had his 18 month check up and they expected him tp say between 5 - 6 words - even if it's something only i would understand.
To be honest i have not seen a baby this young (10 months) talking yet.
Give him time, he'll be right. If you're really worried, then just make an appointment to see the Child Health Care Nurse
Hope this helps
I agree with Belinda, at 10 months I wouldn't be expecting much at all. Give him a few months and he'll be 'talking' your ears off.
yeah you probably want him to shut up by then :laughing:
:hugs: dont panic hon .. I've seen kids go from nothing .. to full words in a week .. some children just take a little longer tis all ..
10 months is DEFINATELY not late!!!
some kids babble .. some dont .. my son says a few words .. never babbles .. others speak fluent gibberish ..
they are all different :D (if you are worried .. have a chat to a CHN - or two )
My 10 mth just likes hearing the sound of his voice (ahh etc) - I can't see him talking for a while.
My just-turned 3yr old only started talking about 4 months ago - he was by far my latest and I was just starting to get concerned. But he's taken leaps and bounds since then and has gone from his first recognisable words then to proper sentences / phrases now.
Your little one will be be lucky to say anything recognisable by 1, going on the average.
DD is 15 months old, and doesn't say very much.
Only recently has she begun to say things REALLY short words... she says, "Gog" (dog), "Bob" (Boob - which is weird, cos she's not breastfed...lol), "Da" (Ta - as in "thank you"), "No" (which, obviously, means "get stuffed mum, like I'm gonna obey you.") and I think she says "Shoes" too...because she says it when we put on her shoes, but I'm not sure if she actually knows what it means...
She DOES say "Da" and "Mum" and stuff, but she doesn't say them with meaning... she doesn't call me "Mum" (well, sometimes it seems like she does, but since I'm around her all day, I might as well figure every other thing she says is referring to me as well)...she doesn't refer to her dad as "da" or anything yet either.
Even though DD can't talk yet, she still communicates. She points...and says "da", which means "I want that." When I say, "Do you want some dinner?" she'll run to the kitchen. She knows what I mean, and I can understand her through things other than talking.
Don't worry about not talking at 10 months...she's got a LONG TIME to talk.
My dd was talking properly (ie. her words were recognisable and consistant) at 9 months. My ds was 2 ½ before he even said mum and dad!
Each child is incredibly different and learns different skills at different times. My ds was really physically orientated and was also really into discovering how things worked.
My dd has been proclaimed a "very intelligent child" as was from a very young age. My ds was proclaimed "slow", but now recognises the letters of the alphabet, numbers up to 20 and reads some basic words! He is only 3 ½! His assessment has been changed to "very intelligent" and they think he is possibly more intelligent than his sister!
All kids focus on the activities that interest them the most at the time and maybe talking just isn't the most important at the moment!
I wouldn't be worried at all :yes: your little man sounds pretty good to me!
my daughter is 18 months now and she used to be able to say 'dog' but now has lost the ability
she says dad and mum all the time ...im pretty sure she said car yesterday ...but yep she can only really say 4 words. that i can recognize anyway...im going to take her for her check up and chicken pox shot soon!
