    Default No words at 12 months.

    Anyone else's 1 yr old not really say anything. She says mama and baba (DH is baba not dada) but not directed at us.
    She doesn't babble much just make noises.
    12 month milestones say she should use mama and dada appropriate and shake her head for no and a whole bunch of communication type things that she doesn't do.

    That is not unusual. If she is the same at 18mths than I would say to look into a referral to a speech therapy.

    Thanks @anewme!
    I wasn't overly concerned but just wanted to hear everything was normal!

    Hi there, my DD wasn't saying anything at 12 months, only babbling noises. She only really took off when she turned 2, then it all happened really fast x

    Normal. Ds1 didn't say his first real word (aside from babbling mum and dad) until he was 20mo. I spoke to my gp at his 18month check and he said if still no words by 2 he would look into it further. Just after 2 he was stringing 2 words together, but lots of what he said I still couldn't understand, by 2.5 his language took off, and by 3 he was on par with his peers. Ds2 also didn't say his first real word until he was about 14mo, at 18mo now he is stringing 2 words together.
