DS2 was a late talker, didn't really say much other than mama until he was about 24-25 months. He was 3 in July and about 1-2 months before his birthday his vocab just took off and now he speaks really well and in full sentences. He does have a lisp and I think an upper lip tie which I suspect we'll end up seeing a speechy for. Not sure if that was related to him speaking later. I think he was just doing things in his own time.

I know a couple of 2 year old boys who don't say much other then gibberish.. I wouldn't be too worried yet just keep following up with GP.

My boy was 2 in May. He is behind because of glue ear. He had his grommets done at 18 months and his speech slowly improved. Over the past few months he's had some MASSIVE improvements, and is now doing fine, though I still think behind where he would have been if not for the ear issues.
If you're certain his hearing is fine I wouldn't worry too much, it can all start to happen very suddenly. I would personally get a hearing check done just for your own peace of mind

What led your DS to getting glue ear? Or is not really known? I don't think DS has it. I honestly never heard of it until about 3 months ago so sorry if my question sounds dumb lol

I think people around me are making me feel I should worry. I was actually enjoying the fact he couldn't back chat yet lol but everyone mentions it and it started making me think maybe he was a fair bit behind and everything on Google says he is 😒

I have an appointment booked with a different doctor on Friday for him but I will cancel it if his ear improves. I'd rather speak to our normal doctor about his speech.

I think at that age he may very well just catch up over the next few months. However, for peace of mind I would certainly be organising an audiology review/hearing test to rule any issues out. Depending where you go there can be a bit of a wait so I would make an appointment earlier rather than later. My DD has had 3 lots of grommets now - prior to this last set being put in she had fluctuating results on hearing tests due to fluid in her ears despite no ear infections/pain.

Oh ok, so if he has not so great results first time it doesn't necessarily mean his hearing is bad?
