My ds is 3 (just turned ) and from early on he spoke really well, I was always told by friends, daycare etc, so I thought all was well.
Anyway lately ds had been adding "shh" to his words. Eg
instead of mouse he says "moushh".
He said shhcared instead of scared and thissh instead of this.
He just said breakfashhs (with the shh) in their instead of breakfast.
Im not sure if I should take it seriously or give it a few weeks.
My dh said he sounds like he has a Greek accent when he says those words!

I'm no expert but I wouldn't start freaking out just yet My DD just turns three and she speaks really well too but occasionally adds a 'Y' to the end of words - "eggy", "beddy", "bready" etc. I'd just monitor it for a while and maybe mention it to your GP the next time you go. Could be just one of those funny little things toddlers do because it's fun.

Hmm I'm not sure. There's such a thing as a lateral lisp that makes "s" sounds like "sh" type sounds. But I'd have thought he'd have been doing that from the get-go. I don't know if lisps can "develop"..... Is it ALL "s" sounds?
Perhaps he's just messing around. My DS (just 3) is doing babytalk at the moment so they can be funny little people.

Thanks for your replies. He has done the baby talk thing too. He has been sick with a cold so I'll wait until he's better.
