    Default Speech delay in reflux bub - is there a connection?

    Hi all,

    My DD is 20 months old now and doesn't talk much. She says mumum, dadad, nanan and down really well, but her other words up and car a d at are more whispers.

    She had silent reflux pretty much from birth, but wasn't diagnosed or medicated (and dairy cut out -she's cows milk protein intolerant) until 4.5 months and didn't really start eating solids /finger food until 10-12 months.

    I think these are contributing to her speech delay, but I'm not sure if they are just a coincidence.

    TIA

    I'm not a medical person. .. however this is what I know based on the fact my dd has been in feeding/speech therapy since about 3 months. She has a syndrome so we've received a lot of support. She's also cmpi and had reflux so feeding has been a huge issue. In terms of speech development. .absolutely can cause issues if feeding is delayed. So I've been told. Chewing/swallowing. .. movement of the tongue, all the things required to eat are the foundations of speech development.
    However I don't believe that because it was delayed or hindered due to medical issues that it will be an ongoing problem. My dd is an example of that at 12 months.
    If you're worried speak to your paed but I'm inclined to believe that babies reach these milestones when they're ready to.
