Post subject: My ds is 15 months and still doesn't say anything?
Hi everyone, I found this site today and am hoping it takes off. I do use another forum but will be poping in to see how this ones going.
Anyway, back to the subject matter. I have a 15 month old (and a 3 yr old) who as of yet hasn't started saying any words. I'm not overly worried just yet as ds1 was 18 months when he started talking. Does anyone elses lo's say anything yet at this age?

I would say there is nothing to worry about as every child develops at their own pace.
Whilst input from parents, sibblings and other adults/children must have an impact, each child has their own pace for development.
I remember my daughter was speaking almost fluently on her second birthday, whereas my son, who is rapidly approaching 2, is only saying 3/4 word phrases. My niece didn't start talking at all until she was nearly 2. So every child is different.

Post subject: stop worrying about babies. your baby is fine!
Einstein was a very late talker. I know kids who only babbled nonsense but they made themselves understood even at AGE THREE and went on to become talking professionals. Too much attention is being paid. there is no connection between early talking and later intelligence, NONE. read up. Think of all the parents who now think their kids are geniuses but how many geniuses are there really? Most kids develop normally on their own timetable. the ONLY way Id be worried and I wouldnt lose my mind is if a child made NO attempt to communicate even nonverbally at 2 and if after wasnt making any communicative noises. Kids will talk. they will walk. they will sleep. to note, breastfed (not bottle fed or pumped milk fed) babies will follow a different course on milestones as will boys versus girls. also, twin kids tend to develop more slowlyas it is hard to give them adequate adult attention. but all catch up, ALL.
