    Yep 70, would be more now. But of course they aren't all properly pronounced and some of them aren't even close - eg. "wee" is fish.

    My dd is 18 months and has about 10 words, not as many as the other toddlers in my mum's group and iylt definitely worries me a bit!!
    I came across this article today though which has put my mind to rest for now, says the typical amount of words for 18 months is only five!! Hth

    Just before DS1 turned 2yo, he had 15-20 words. The basics, mum, dad, car, cat, drink, ect. Then he turned 2yo and was saying 2-3word sentences. He is 4yo now and had no speech problems
