Hi moms I’m hoping someone can help as I’m feeling like a crappy mom right now. Any other babies not talking or gestures yet?
My son doesn’t talk yet. He babbles and interacts with us and others. He doesn’t use gestures (I have realized I don’t use much gestures at all so have been really working on this). I went for his check up for 18 months with the dr and since he’s not talking or gesturing they are sending him to get eval for autism. I was a little off guard as he’s been home with me his whole life so social has been lacking with covid. It’s a long wait to get evaluated. I feel horrible I didn’t focus on certain set backs. I am signed up for speech therapy and we had out evaluation today which she told us ways to help him. My main concerns are no imitation play, no speech and no gestures. Everything else he does good

You’re not a bad mother! Your concern shows you’re an awesome mom that is trying to find the best way to support her baby. Hang in there!
