Re: how much should/does a 17month old talk....
My son does not talk much, he babbles and sometimes you think he is saying something. He is almost 18 months. He says daddy mostly, he also calls our bird daddy, his name is jerrx but I dnt think he can say it. He says naynay for boobies.
He mostly says German words that he hears he chanted gruß Gott for awhile. Now he lickes to say ****e. He just repeats things.
I swear he has said his name a few times.
