Sorry in advance for the parenting related question
DD has been either at the very end of the curve or late for practically every milestone. She couldn't sit w/o toppling over until 9m, pulled herself up at maybe 11m and didn't take an unassisted step until 15m.
So I guess I am not suprised that at 17m, she seems to have a speech delay. My mom has been getting on me about her talking, so I did a little googling, and according to Dr. google, she should have 50 words by 18m. I honestly didn't know that and now I feel bad for not intervening sooner. Cue panic.
DD says hi, bye and no. She says "uh-oh" if she drops something, but that's it. No mama or dada ever. Her 18m check up is in about 3 weeks, so obvioulsy I am going to speak to her ped, but in the meantime, I am wondering if there is anything I can do to encourage her talking? Any advice/ help is appreciated!
