dd is 17 months on saturday. she communicates beautifully (makes noises, points, motions etc) but actual words are really non existent. she can say mum, dad and says ds’ name but i feel like even that’s occasional. she says “go!” if you count down “three, two, one and..” and she says “go!!”. she understands everything we say to her. just her verbal use of words seems really limited?? i’ve tried looking back at videos of ds around this age to compare but can’t seem to really find much. but i swear he was saying a bit more than dd.

at what point does one take the next step and go chat to a gp? or am i worrying prematurely?
