    Default Baby/toddler talk

    How many words can your 15 month old say?
    Mine only says 3. Mum, dad and weeeee when he goes down the slide lol

    He does babble/talk giberish a lot.
    He can understand a fair bit too.

    I have three older kids so I should know but I guess all babies are different right?

    My eldest has a speech impediment ( verbal dyspraxia) and wasn't saying much at the same age either.

    My dp had speech problems too, though he and my eldest aren't related.

    So what's normal? Am I right to worry?

    My 19 month old is only really starting to say words and animal noises now. At 15 months his repertoire was 3 words as well and I'm not at all worried. I've been told that if by 2 he's not saying much then to speak to Dr for referral to speech therapist. But now he's starting to say new words or sounds pretty much every day.

    My ds is 16 months old and can only say a few words in context eg mum, dad, juice, nanna, Buddha (cats name), num (food), bath and baba (croation for grandma). Everything else is jibberish and copying what we say. He has only really started talking and saying words properly since 14 months. Being my first I don't know if this is advanced for his age or normal or slow. There's a lot of things he can't do that other babies his age can and I figure that he's doing everything in his own time. If your worried that there is a delay, have a chat with your child nurse or gp and they will be able to alleviate your worries or point you in the right direction for a speech specialist.

    My 13 month old can only say mama, and dada in context, and baaaaaaaaaa (which could mean anything). The rest is just babble. Although I did think the other day I may have heard her say yes, although it sounded more like yass.

    Thanks..

    He also says "hey?" ( I think it's meant to mean hi or hello) when I give him my phone to play with.

    At 15 months we had hi, uh (up) and dadad. She also made a few different animal sounds. (Her comprehension was way way beyond but her speech fell behind). She is now 22 months and has around 100 recognisable words. She had a massive burst of words around the 18 month mark where we went from about 5 words to around 30-40 in a couple of weeks.

    My ds had a word spurt around 16 months. Before that I think he had maybe 6 words?

    My son only said 2 words at that age, mama and dada. Now at 19months he says mama, dada and nana clearly, everything else is either shortened or mispronounced... Ie: Boo= book, so=sock, nigh nigh=night night, datdan=batman, da=ta... Being a first time mum I cant help but compare to other children of similar age or worry if there is more I should be doing to help his speech. So we are doing a hearing test next week just to rule out any hearing issues
