    Default Toddler talk

    What should I expect from my turning two in April. I visited the nurse and she said DD was slow because she doesn't say 200 words yet. I've been trying to count now lol.

    She strings words together says thank you, here you go H... Leave it alone, good night, love you, all names of her favourite foods, trucks cars etc but not so much spelling and drawing.

    ☺️

    Sorry but I think that's bull.

    DS had maybe 20 words until December when he just suddenly started talking at 26 months. He'd have hundreds of words now. He literally went from barely talking to nine words sentences the next day. Just keep talking to her :-)

    Sounds to me like your daughter is doing great, I wouldn't be worried at all. My DS is 18 months and says about three words, and the GP we saw a couple of weeks ago wasn't bothered at all.

    Our daughter was 2.5 before stringing words together and she had no where near 200 words!

    She turned 3 in November and oh my gosh, you can't shut her up now!

    Kids are like sponges they will (and do) absorb the words spoken around them (note to self stop swearing in front of dd lol)

    No two kids are exactly the same with in regards to development. Your chn is putting too much pressure on your child and yourself.

    We used to have the same issues with book hitting and frustration. I ended up buying those cd books. She held the book while looking at the pics and I was reading along with what they were saying. She still learnt the words that way xx

    Monnie, I think this nurse has caused you unnecessary concern.

    It's more of a concern if a child doesn't put two words together by age two. Your DD is already doing that.
