    Default How much does your 15 month old understand/follow instructions.

    Hi there
    I am just curious how much your 15 month understands and how much they follow instructions. My son seems to understand some words like if you say "where are your shoes" He may look at his shoes but he wouldn't go and get them. I have noticed other kids his age doing this and I know they all develop differently but I was just wondering if he seems a bit delayed. He points to thinks he finds interesting and is starting to understand "where" questions. He isn't really saying any words yet apart from "dada" and it sounds like he's saying thank you as he says it whenever you give him something but he also says it randomly also. He used to say other words like bird, ta but hasn't said those for a while. I'm just wondering if he could be a bit delayed with his language?

    Dd is almost 17 months and its only been in the last few weeks that her language has really picked up. She learning new words every day. As for following instructions, shes not really there. Occasionally she might do it (usually when I say "wheres daddy?" And she'll go and look for him or if I say "whos at the door?" She'll go to the front door). She was definitely not doing these things at 15 months though

    Dd is 15 months tomorrow and can follow most directions I.e get your shoes/hat, put dolly to bed, bring something to mummy, eat your toast. Amazes me actually!!

    I think they all develop at different rates and there is not really any 'normal'

    Dd is 15 months she's a little slower than Ds1 I guess all are different, I try to walk around the house pointing things out like a crazy person. I am not sure if its helping but when I worry I just tell myself that Einstein didn't speak till he was 3
