    I think the day care idea is a good idea. Every child is different and finding ways to trigger talking could work too, i have always sung alot to dd and she picked up a lot through song. Ours is a major chatter box and even knows up to 8 with counting but has lately started gesturing everything instead of just saying it.

    my 19 month old was very much the same and I had the same concerns.

    she turns 2 next week and DH and I actually laugh at ourselves now because now SHE WILL NOT SHUT UP!

    it was as if it just happened overnight... one day she hardly babbled and the next she mimics every word we say and can put together short sentences.

    everyone told me she would just get it and my limit was 2 years old then we see someone.

    hang in there... we think DD was just lazy!

    My DD will be 2 in June and right up until 2 months ago had 3 words that was it the rest was just babble. We had her hearing checked and even made an app to see a speech therapist. It really was pretty much over night she come out with a whole array of words including DS name she only put 2 words together last week which are "it's okay" it's super cute.

    Honestly I wouldn't stress too much give it till 2 then assess the situation best of lick

    Gee, it's great to hear that changes really can happen overnight! My DS1 is almost 22 months and only says "da" (dad) and "more" repeatedly. He will cluck, gobble, woof, meow and moo when asked though. He's probably said about 15 other words but he only says them once and we haven't heard them since. It makes me wonder if I really did hear them!

    DS1 has been referred by the CHN for audiology testing and speech therapy. We've got the audiologist next week (I think his hearing is fine though) and the public wait for speech is so long that now we are looking into paying a private therapist for just a few sessions to get us started.

    DS didn't talk until he was 22 months. At 19 months I was worried too. I remember he didn't even say mum. He said dada and car and that was it! He won't talk at all, just whinged, he couldn't even sign. Then I think around 21-22 months all of a sudden his language just picked up so fast. Now he's 2 and he can say heaps!

    DD is almost 21mo and has been slow to talk too. She's naturally a shy kid so I think that's part of it.

    She understands heaps though, follows instructions (e.g. I can ask her to get a specific book and she'll go get it) and babbles a lot.

    I kind of feel like we're on the verge, her babble sounds so much like it almost makes sense lol. When I think about it she can say a few words but it's just not consistent - the only words she uses all the time are:
    - mummy/mumma
    - daddy
    - no
    - more (and has just started adding 'please' so kind of sounds like 'more peeez')
    - yeah
    - bye
    - door (random!)

    I'm not going to worry unless it hasn't improved when she turns 2.

    Thanks everyone! Just a little update!

    As I type this my dd is lying in her cot (should be asleep!) saying 'Toot Toot'! Yes, in the last 2 weeks she's added quite a few words to her vocabulary! She regularly says Toot, Hello, Ta, Baa, la la la (for singing) and then a few others as well for good measure! So, the speech appointment is cancelled and we will wait to make sure her speech continues to improve with time as I guess it will !

    Another update.

    It's been about 6 weeks since I started this thread and now I've lost track of my dd's words, but it's probably around 30 - 40. She's also using phrases such as "What's that?" "Who's that?" "I did it". Tonight my dh said "No" to her when she was trying to play with the running water that was filling the bath. She walked away from the bathroom saying in a sing song voice "He said Noooooo" (exaggerating the No for fun). She thought it was a great joke and so did we .

    So, with minimal change - just pushing her to repeat us more and picking the moment to do that (eg. in the car in the morning) started off this process, but pushing it didn't go on for long. She took up talking and now her language has exploded

    My 3rd son really didn't talk much until he was 3. I think here in NZ they are a bit more laid back, no-one seemed to think much of it, but I decided I wanted him tested by an audiologist, he passed that with flying colours, and now since then has been slowly adding to his vocab, and at just over 4 is very talkative. perhaps he just couldn't get a word in edgewise with two older brothers...
