Should I be concerned that my toddler is not talking?

His peers are talking.


Answer by  oldmom (716)

Children talk at different ages. If he seems to be developing normally in other areas, I wouldn't worry. Talk to him, elicit responses, encourage him to mimic you, perhaps.

If your child is on target on other physical milestones such as walking, he may simply be delayed in speech. If other milestones are late, see a doctor for evaluation.

you should not be anxious that your just learning to walk child is not talking. Because usually children's growth is step-by -step slow and steady. Commonly children's growth is first try to take steps slowly and the try to speak gradually. Dont concern your tiny one will be talking with you very soon. your kid talking with his sweet voice to you.

It depends on how old your child is, and if he's not talking at all or just not as much. Kids learn to talk at their own pace.

Speech development varies widely among children, so it doesn't necessarily mean there is a problem. A general guideline is they should have 50 words by age 2.

Check with your pediatrician to make sure there are no physical reasons (e. g. , not being able to hear) and to make sure nothing else is going on.

You have 50 words left!
