He absolutely refuses to say mummy though and it's not because he can't actually say it (will repeat mama if asked but we just get stunned silence when pointing to me or he just says daddy instead (he knows very well who daddy is, it's also his favourite word). I feel so unloved!!
    I guess I have got caught up in comparing him.. first time parent paranoia. Friends little girl is 8 weeks older & she's pretty chatty. And I can't help but compare parenting, I feel as though I don't really 'chat' or have expansive conversations with DS, more pointing this & that out. I've never been really good with baby talk. I guess I worry I'm repetitive & not doing much to aide his vocabulary. Like everything else though, he seems to be doing just fine.

    As hard as it is try not to compare between kids. They are all SO different! My ds says 30+ words and has 15+ signs at 18 months but physically he is "behind" most other kids his age and didn't walk until 16 months. They all do stuff in their own time.

    Talking and reading to them heaps will help though. If you don't know what to say just talk about what you are doing or planning or thinking. Their comprehension will far out pace their number of words.
