Is it common for them to go through spells where their speaking drops off or stops completely?
DS was doing well with using a handful of phrases daily. He hasnt since Monday. Absolutely no words at all until today when he said "I fall down" and "Ma/Mom". I have noticed that the amount of time I spend interacting with him directly impacts the frequency of his words...and I was super busy getting us squared away to travel for the holiday (DH is deployed, so all prep fell on me). He has had similar drop offs in the past. Not worried about him losing words yet as they are creeping back and he has done this in the past and the words resurfaced.
Mostly I was just wondering if it was common for them to go through phases like this. Days or a week of not talking. He has been doing a lot of closed mouth talking and humming instead of actual talking.
