    My son is nearly 2 and only has about 5 words. I've been told not to worry, but constantly am!! He has been late in everything, but always catches up!
    I hear boys talk later than girls and dh didn't talk till he was well past 3.
    Sorry, I'm not much help, but saw your post and wanted to try and reassure you!!!!!

    Way too early to worry! I also have a 13 month old, and all she says is
    Hi
    Bye
    Boo
    Dog (pronounced "D'oh")

    DS only said a couple of words at that age too. He's now 5 and never stops talking...LOL

    At 13 months I don't think DS said anything, except "mum" out of context. At 22 months he never shuts up and is pretty much talking in full sentences. Don't worry!

    Sylvie is 15 months and perfectly clever but on the whole silent. She says ta when she wants something, nana for a Breastfeed and echo when we go under a tunnel. Much like a teletubby really.

    I wouldnt worry! DS is 14 months and he says:
    Ma
    Dad
    Dog
    Cat
    Num Num (yum yum lol)
    Uh oh

    I think around this age its mostly picking up and copying tone. Dont worry one day he wont stop talking

    DD is 15mo and only says "ta". She says Dada and Mum but ta is the only thing she says in the proper context (ie she says it when she offers you something or takes something). She's starting to say Dada at DH but it's inconsistent.

    She does understand things I say though so I'm not too worried yet.

    ETA - I have noticed DD has been using a lot more inflection lately and putting different noises in her babbling. I'm sure a few proper words will just pop out one day soon!

    I wouldn't worry at all

    Our DD is an absolute chatterbox. But that's just her personality. All children are different and I wouldn't worry at all at that age

    Both DP and I are big talkers (prob why we mesh well). It doesn't surprise me DD is the same.

    My DD was the same at 13 months, pretty much only said mum, dad and bub. Now at 18 months I've lost track of how many words she's saying because it seems like every day she says a new word!
