Definitely on the same page. My DS is 15 months and only says mum and dad. He has previously said dog, dads here, Adje (Croatian) and ta but won't anymore. So hard not to worry but trying my best lol

Are you kidding? 14 Months?
Now, if he has 5 words by the time he's 18 months, THEN I would have a chat with your GP. At 14 months I would not be at the least concerned.
My bestie has a 2yo who didn't speak 1 word until he was 18 months and he hasn't stopped since.

My boys didn't talk till 2 and weren't talking in fluent sentences till 3. My daughters were a little earlier but definatly not 14 months.
Your ds sounds very normal and of course they can understand a lot more than they can say

I didn't mean to be offensive. BUT there are many threads here already with people being concerned about kids not speaking at 12-16 months. Especially boys.
DS didn't say a word until he was 18 months and I wasn't concerned until then. Oh and he is my first and only child as well.
Yes he's diagnosed with global developmental delay, but again, kids develop all differently and googling this will confirm it. That is why I say, if her child does not have any more words before he's 18 months, then I would contact a doctor and see if she can get some speech for him.

Sometimes kids start with a few general words like ma and da and that's all they aast for months. Then suddenly it's like they have verbal diarrhea and it all starts... And doesn't stop! My DS did that at about 2 and his vocab has expanded regularly ever since.
Don't stress, every child is different
