My DD is 20 months old now and doesn't talk much. She says mumum, dadad, nanan and down really well, but her other words up and car a d at are more whispers.
She had silent reflux pretty much from birth, but wasn't diagnosed or medicated (and dairy cut out -she's cows milk protein intolerant) until 4.5 months and didn't really start eating solids /finger food until 10-12 months.
I think these are contributing to her speech delay, but I'm not sure if they are just a coincidence.

Speech delay in reflux bub - is there a connection?

However I don't believe that because it was delayed or hindered due to medical issues that it will be an ongoing problem. My dd is an example of that at 12 months.
If you're worried speak to your paed but I'm inclined to believe that babies reach these milestones when they're ready to.
