DS has recently begun to stutter and stammer, sometimes he gets so excited and stutters to the point that we can't understand what he is saying. Up to this point he has been very verbal, so we notice a big difference. It seems to me like his mental wheels are turning very quickly and he just can't get his mouth wrapped around what he wants to say. I'd say he has been doing this off and on for 2-3 weeks now, and he is 25 months.
DH and I are very careful not to rush him or make him feel anxious otherwise. We just wait patiently for him and respond to whatever he can muster out. He doesn't seem to be frustrated by it at all, which is good. A friend said her 2 year old was going through the same thing for a few weeks and then things returned to normal, so I hope that it is just a phase. I do think that with starting preschool and learning so much new information he is having a bit of info overload, haha. He's also sleeping 12+ hours and 4 hour naps so he must be working hard to process everything. :P
Anyone else experience this with their toddler?
