    Default Speech at 18 months

    How much was your baby speaking at 18 months old?

    My dd says ball, book, mama, dada, bubba.. she knows alot of words by me just saying.. like close, open, sit, cookie.. etc...
    is this a normal rate? She tends to just say mama and dada most of the day!

    Thanks moms

    This is just the start, you wait and see. I found the biggest change in DS was from 18 months- 24 months. The words keep coming. It is so cute to see these developments.
    The next 6 months you will notice a big difference.

    My son was speaking full sentences, huge vocabulary at that age.

    I recently watched some old home videos of dd at that age. I encouraged her on tape for about two minutes to name what I was holding, and then shrieked with delight when she said ball. lol. I think there's a huge amount of variety in the first few years

    My oldest was speaking in 3 word sentences at 18 mths I stopped counting her words when she reached 200

    My youngest only knew 50 words or so and at first I was worried! lol!! But about 2 mths later she had that big explosion of words. Now she never stops talking lol!

    All kids are different and learn at different rates. They'll sometimes concentrate on one thing over another. My youngest was definitely more active ( read athletic) than #1 which I think made up the difference in their vocab.

    The words will come in time. But as always if you are concerned check with your doc or give tyke talk a call!

    Taken from Baby Center

    12 to 17 months
    She's using one or more words and knows what they mean. She'll even practise inflection, raising her tone when asking a question, saying “Up-py?“ when she wants to be carried, for example. She's realizing the importance of talking and how powerful it is to be able to communicate her needs.

    18 to 24 months
    Her vocabulary may include as many as 200 words now, many of which are nouns. Between 18 and 20 months, children learn words at a rate of 10 or more a day. Some learn new words every 90 minutes, so watch your language. She'll even string two words together, making basic sentences such as “Carry me.“ By the time she's two, she'll use three-word sentences and sing simple tunes. Her sense of self will mature, and she'll start talking about herself -- what she likes and doesn't, what she thinks and feels. Pronouns may confuse her, and you may catch her avoiding them, saying “Baby throw“ instead of “I throw.“

    My DS had just a handful of words at 18 months. Maybe 5? He is really talking more now!

    I have a list somewhere in his baby book (in a box since we moved). I started a list of all the words he knew and then each week drew a line and put the date and listed all the new words he had learned. Over a few months he went from maybe 20 words to a full page of words, lol.

    The fact that she is saying words is good and if she understand many she is probably just waiting till she has them perfected and then will start saying them all at once, lol. Then you'll have to remember that you WANTED her to talk more

    My 19 month old says mama, dada, gama (both grandma and grandpa), and tacor (tractor), pop (popping bubbles) that is it.
    My first just before a year old would say 'no touch, hot' walking by our wood stove, but my second was the same as my third and at 3 years old has a huge vocabularly and very clear for his age. My dr. doesn't worry about boys and delayed speech until they are two. I'm not sure about girls.

    DS- zero words (has a lang. disorder)
    DD- I have no idea, but I know she had a huge list of words by then.

    It varies greatly.
