...and how many does he/she say?
leslie&brian:I think our pedi said 7-10 is normal, and Matt only says 5 right now.
Our pedi said the exact same thing and my son can also only say 5.
Man, I was never worried about how much/little DS has been talking, but now ya'll are starting to freak me out a bit. He's almost 18 months and kind of says hot, cheese, and juice. I feel like he's picked these all up in the last week or two though, so hopefully this pattern will continue. He also says ut-oh, mommy, and daddy really well and has been saying those for quite a while. We'll see what the Dr. says at his 18 mo appt.
I can tell I've clearly been off the bump too much lately! I've completely lost track of all the things I'm supposed to be worrying about!
I think 9 individual words.
By 2yr. appoitnment, they should put two words together, "Mama Juice," or "Dada Work."
DS is 23mo and has been babbling for months saying 9 words at 18mo appointment. Only in the past two weeks, he said, "I Love You."
IEtoLA:he just asked if she knew at least 10.
Ditto exactly. But at xmas when I saw my cousin (an early childhood intervention specialist with masters) she said we should be looking for 50 words at 18 months. At the time A was 14 months and only saying 5-10 so I remember thinking "Uhhhh...." but right around 18 months her vocab exploded and she started repeating everything.
At DD's 18-month checkup, Dr asked if she knew 20 words. She didn't, but she had a little over 10 and none of us (me, DH or Dr) were overly concerned.
She is a little over 19 months now and I think she has about 20 words
DS's pediatrician asked if DS said 10-20 words. I have a gabby little guy & he has always been above the curve. At 18 months he was at about 50 words. Now, at 20 months, he's close to 90 & putting 2 & 3 words together.
