Answer: your toddler isn't using a few words, you may be concerned. It may be confusing because he may seem to hear, understand, and follow instructions despite not speaking much, and there are no other signs of delayed development. Receptive language is much more important than expressive language. Does he understand what you are saying? For example, if you say where is the ball? does he look for the ball. At this age, he should only have one or so words! Is he gesturing? For example, does he wave bye-bye? This is what I'm saying...no child is like another child.  Don't let milestone markers rule your life.  Speech therapists believe that if your child does not have 8-10 words by the time he is 18 months old, THEN start worrying and make an appointment with your doctor...
Answer: Hello Rushing the kids will not work as the more u force ur baby the more they ll hesitate due to the pressure. Children start talking or rather mouthing words by 14 to 18 months. Try playing rhyms with animal sounds so they can start mouthing the words or animal sounds start by encouraging them try dancing with rhyme and say the moo baa wuf with the rhymes the kids are very fast with imitating so they ll soon start imitating u in no time. Once he starts telling the sounds start with Johnny johnny or incy Vinci spider. So he can start with this again.
Answer: Consult a child specialist It can be delayed milestome

Question: Hiii my baby boy is 1 year 9 months old but still not talking
Answer: Babies start babbling and come up with 'mama' and 'papa' during 6 months. However it is not the case with all babies... Each and every child is different. By 18 months or so, the child should speak 4 to 6 words. Again each child is different. First and foremost thing, a parent should do is daily converse with your baby face to face. Spend a lot of time with your child by talking to him, reading stories to him, singing along with him and also be a perfect listener which will inculcate interest to speak out. You can speak to your pediatrician regarding tis which can easily be solved. They may suggest hearing and speech therapy.

Question: Still my baby is not talking .....what should i do ?
Answer: Hi! I would recommend going to a speech therapist at the minimum. Check out speech milestones on ASHA website. As far as I remember, a 2yo should have a vocabulary of about 200 words, ability to answer in one word and just able to form 2 word sentences. I'm not trying to add to your stress, just sharing what I remember to encourage you to go to a professional for evaluation. They will share tips for you to interact with the child too. Hope this helps!
