    Default Would you worry?

    Hey guys. So am just a bit worried about my dd and how much talking she is doing. She is 16 1/2 months. She doesnt have many words that she says, just babbles away in her own little language. She probably has just a bit more than a handful of words that she says but im worried. Should she be saying more at this age?? She understands alot but doesn't say much.

    A bubba just a little older than my babe says LOADS of words. Just a bit worried...

    At that age I wouldn't worry. DD is 2 in a few days and lots of kids her age talk a lot more than she does. She understands heaps and her talking is improving heaps lately.

    I wouldn't worry at all. DS is 20 months and we have about 15 words now, at 15 months he was saying 'meow' (we have a very vocal cat!) and nothing else. I'm sure your DD's language will just explode at some point. If you're still concerned at 2 then talk to your GP but I'm sure she's fine Hard not to worry though!

    My dd didn't really start saying a lot until she was 2yrs, at your dd's age she could understand what we were saying but didn't say a lot. Now at 3.5 yrs I can't get her to stop talking!!!

    Hey lovely Ds as you know is 22 months.... he understands everything we say and also follows commands (sounds like Im talking about a dog lol). He talks a lot in his own babbly way and he says maybe 20 or so words, some are two word sentences. He's also a really busy and distracted kid so when we are out he doesn't say much at all so I do sometimes worry...but at this stage Ive been told to wait and see what he does once he hits two...sometimes their language just explodes so waiting to see if that happens At 16 months he only had a handful of words and was quite the babbler too

    Sounds like my DD at her age. The babbling is how it starts

    Then all of a sudden, around 20ish months she just started coming out with heaps of new words.
    At 26 months she's got 100+
    It just happens out if the blue and quickly.

    Very hard not to worry!! Haha. Thanks for the reassurance, it just worried me that dd wasnt doing what she should when the other bubba was so vocal. I also used to live with a family when I was younger who had 3 kids on the autism spectrum so when their bubber was 1 they had him in speech therapy because they were worried that he might have autism like his elder brother. But yeah, seeing your posts I feel a bit better!! So thanks

    I know its hard to not worry! They all do things in their own time.

    My bestie has twin 2 year old girls. One talks so much the other not a lot.

    It's just how it is sometimes

    Try not worry too much; sounds like your DD is in track. My DD is 20 months and at her 18 month check up the CHN said that they should have at least 10 words by then. Receptive language comes before expressive language so the most important thing is that she is understanding what you say.

    I do know how you feel though as there is a toddler in my mothers group the same age as my DD who is already talking in sentences and has always been advanced with her language. It took me a while to just relax and remember that they are all different and eventually my DD will get there too.

    I wouldn't worry too much - my aunty had the same thing with her daughter, not speaking many words or very often. Then one day when she was 2.5 years old, they were crossing the street together and my cousin said 'mum, why did grandma fall off the chair at the bus station?' She was just waiting for her 'moment' to speak.
