My GS is 14months and he says mum dad go up no ta bye car ick ( kick) bub and og for dog ..
My DD had only mama and dada at that age. She is now 2 and never shuts up! She has more words than I can keep track of. I'm sure your DS will be fine, I guess you could get his hearing checked just to be sure
My 16 month old says mama, nana and baba (Serbian for nana) and has sporadically said Tata (Serbian for dad) and pop. He's also come out with random words here and there that he's never repeated again and has recently stopped saying pretty much everything except for mama or mum. I'm sure he'll have a spurt again soon and I'm not concerned.
This is so reassuring, excellent timing. DS is almost 14 months old & I was worried he should be saying more. I've recently purchased picture books to encourage speech? Is it true that girls advance quicker with speech??
In context he will say 'mama' 'dada' 'ta' (thankyou) 'ta ta' (bye) 'hiya' (occasionally) 'all gone' (finished) 'boo' (book) 'ball' 'boon'(balloon) 'appol' (apple) 'baba' (banana) ''Aat' (hat) 'bub-bols' (bubbles) he has words for the bin & bottle plus one or two other random objects that we understand but hard to repeat lol. He's consistent though. He seems to know lots of 'B' words. He's starting to copy aswell so we have to be VERY careful what we say infront of him lol.
My 15 month old says dada, nana and rarely says mama.
Dad didn't even say that much. She hummed quite a bit and was always making noises, but she started saying a few words - mum, dad, car, up just before 2, then at 2 and 2/3 months she was speaking in 3-4 word sentences - it just all came out.
When I was worried about her all the literature I read said speech 'tests' aren't really accurate until 3 as all kids develop speech at a different rate and it all evens out around 3.
Does he have recurrent ear infections at all?
