Good morning all,
I have a 2yr 7 month old, he is saying words but not 2 words together.
My hubby speaks to him in 1 language as I do mainly English.
To my amazement he remembers songs and words that we used to say to him when he was a lot younger.
Just wondering, is he just going to blurt out talking one day or will I have an issue?

When did your child start talking?

He does sound like he's behind where he should be for his age. I would suggest having him assessed by a speech therapist. Perhaps a visit to your GP to see if they can refer you on to a paediatrician also.
Even if there are no other developmental issues of concern, he will benefit from some speech therapy.
Many people have stories about their late talkers suddenly exploding with language, which is encouraging to hear when your own child is a bit behind, but it can also give others false hope.
I am speaking from the perspective of a parent of a child who had a speech delay and now at almost 4 still has a language delay (expressive and receptive). As it turns out, my DS has autism.

I would take him along for an assesment by a speech therapist. My daughter (20 months) sees one because she is a late talker and her therapist said that about half of late talkers just suddenly start talking but about half need help with it.

I've had a few sentences today.
He says words in both languages and fully understands us I'm both language

He fully understands. And works his way through the iPad, he actually knows it better than me. I only have educational apps and a Greek app. I believe it's helped him.
And he can sing some words in both languages.
