    All kids do things at different times. I wouldn't worry just yet.
    Ds2 started talking very early well before he was 1yr old as did ds1, he is 18mths now and speaking clear sentences which I wasn't ready for, don't be in a hurry

    DD is 13 months and says Dad regularly, Mum occasionally, Ta, and Yum. That's pretty much it really. She chats away to me heaps but nothing I can make out. I was worried but feel better after reading all the previous posts.

    Ds 15m says about 12 words. Dd at 17m only had about 3words and i was a little worried but then at 19m started picking up many words. She is 3y now and talks constantly!

    No. DD1 and DD2 were both speaking in complete sentences by 18 months but DS1 barely says I word and he's 20 months. Personally I think he can't get a word in with those 2 around.

    I'm always so keen for them to talk and now everyday I'm driving them all to school I just wish they'd all STFU for 5 minutes

    Ive read that by this age as long as they can understand and follow very simple directions, that is more important than the number of words they can say.

    DS is 12 months and says mum, dad, nana, bubba. I am only really convinced that mum and dad are in context though.

    At our 12month check with MCHN she said she wouldn't worry, he's very 'chatty' and she said it will all of sudden just happen.

    She said if he got to 18months without even saying mum in context she would think about taking a closer look but even then wouldn't be 'worried' as she's seen loads of bubs like that who then become very articulate little conversationalists a bit later on.
