Please help with my anxiety ?
My son is 9 months, almost 10 months old. I know you should not compare but as a first time mother I worry, I mean what first time mother doesn?t. My son is hitting all other milestones and advanced in some. He?s 9 months and trying to take steps unassisted, waving, smiling, working on clapping, pulling himself up, crawling, rolling, playing with two hands, feeding himself, etc.
However, my little man is not babbling. I mentioned this to the doctor and he didn?t seem to concerned and just kept saying read a lot and talk a lot around him. My son will one in a while yell ?aaaa? or ?ahhhh? and has said ?baba? once but nothing else. He is a very quiet little man. He loves to play with me and we do games and he stairs in my eyes, smiles, laughs, knows him name and if you make sounds he looks at the sound and where it?s coming from.
Should I be concerned that he?s not saying ?mama or dada? or making any babbling at all?
Over worried first time mama.
