    Default DS doesnt talk :(

    I Know all bubs develope at different rates but DS is almost 14 months an he doesn't talk...

    He can say dad dad dad and mum mum and he says bababa and naanaa (for food)

    But he doesn't really say it in context - except for naa naa when he's hungry.

    He has occasionally said dad dad or mum mum when he wants us but has stopped.

    Should I be worried?? Is there anything I can do to help?

    I talk to him ALL day and show him things and tell him what I'm doing and often say things like 'can you say xyz..' but nothing

    Any advice? Should I be worried?

    Don't be worried. It is totally normal. Keep chatting to him and he'll one day start babbling They just develop language in their own time. It it is still a problem at 30 months your GP will send you to a specialist.

    Way too early to worry, 14 months is still so very little!

    Both my boys had no words just sounds at that age. By 2 yo that had about 5-10 solid words. And took off from there. Whereas my daughter had her first word at 11 months and never stopped. They are all each so different. I wouldn't worry yet.

    This ^^ just keep talking to him. My kids were both around two before they really started talking more than just babbling a few words.

    My friend's ds is 18 months and about the same amount of words/talking as yours, I wouldn't worry yet. He's definitely not on his own

    Phew! Thanks I guess I'm excited to hear him talk and so worried he's behind or something.

    He knows exactly what we mean when we speak to him. So i guess that's good.

    My son is almost 16 months and has more sounds than words. And still won't say mum even out of context! If you listen carefully to other sounds you may find he has specific ones for certain things just not as words yet. Ds says eehooo for hello and thank you for example. Don't stress yet

    My DD is exactly the same and also 14 months.

    All she says is mum, dad and rahhh when i ask her what a lions does lol. She babbles non stop but nothing that resembles English!

    She understands sooooo much, eg: will go to the table when i ask, pours me some tea from her teapot if i ask for a cuppa.

    I can definitely relate and its frustrating but they'll 'get it' in their own time.
