Any reason for concern?
« on: October 06, 2017, 10:19:00 PM »
Hey all!

I’m brand new to the board, so my apologies if this topic has been discussed. I’m a first time dad, my little guy is 17 months old and I’m starting to get concerned about his talking, or lack thereof.

He does a lot of the milestone things, points, responds to his name, follows minor directions. He’s spoken previously, saying “mama” and “dada” but that was about 3 months ago and now he just babbles.

I ask him to say “dada” and he smiles at me like he knows what I want him to say, but he doesn’t say it.

Is there cause for concern yet, or could this be because my wife is home with him all day and he doesn’t necessarily need to talk because she makes sure he has what he wants?

Any help and advice would be appreciated.

Welcome to the site. 

I wouldn’t worry too much. Every baby is different, but if you are concerned you can ask your babies pediatrician if they would recommend a good speech therapist. We took 2 of our children to a therapist when they were young. It helped a lot and if nothing is wrong you have the piece of mind.     Hope this helps.
