    My daughter has had 'speech therapy' since 4 weeks old.
    Speech pathologists also look at suck and feeding etc. Feeding is the precursor to speech.
    My daughter has a syndrome so early intervention was key.

    We didn't start focusing on verbal speech until she was about 2. We did signs from a very early age. To answer the OP I would be following up. Getting in early is vital and you might find you've nothing to worry about but it's worth investigating.

    Our paediatrician referred us as our baby made no 'noises' at all, besides crying. No babble etc. After hearing was checked and all fine that was the next step. In saying that our speechie said there wasn't much we could do at an early age.

    We didn't either, however Bubby made no noises (even shouting, shrieking)!

    Just a tip, I found my older two would answer a lot for him and tell me "oh he wants this" and speak for him. So I got onto them, having them ask him to say what he wanted, repeat it word for word into sentences and have him relay it back. I don't know if it did the trick but he did start talking once everyone started on that and did less for him, so to speak.
