Re: tell me about your 10-11month olds

DS really only says "uh-oh" reliably. You can ask him to and it starts an hour of uh-oh's. Thats it. He is WAY advanced on gross and fine motor skills. Crawled 4.5 mos, self fed by 8.5 months and walked just prior to 7 months. I'm dreading our 12 mos visit to the study. He meets with a therapist and she evals/rates him. I realllt think that he is too focused on other things to talk. Maybe the same w/ your daughter. I was an early talker and a late walker, dh was the opposite.

Re: tell me about your 10-11month olds

I think getting her checked won't hurt. Maybe she's perfectly OK, maybe it's a sign of a problem. No one knows for sure.

My daughter is 16 months now (and talks all the time), but at 10-11 months, she was probably saying 25-30 words regularly and making a TON of cooing and other noises.

At 16 months... she imitates just about everything we say. She says 2-3 word sentences. She does sign language and is actually pretty demanding and sassy.

She said three words pretty much at the same time when she was 8 months old. She was about average with her other skills... crawling at 8.5 months, walking just before her birthday, etc.

Re: tell me about your 10-11month olds

I would go ahead with at least the initial appointment. My dd is 11 months and babbles a lot and now says four words.

Re: tell me about your 10-11month olds

YOU should do what you feel in your heart but since you asked I wouldnt worry, if it were me. My DS is exactly between 10 and 11 months and he doesnt say words. He (like your lo) signed "more" for the first time 3 days ago but hasnt done it since. He still just babbles....dadada, daydayday, has never even made the mamama sound. I have never thought negative about it. He just may be slower to do it than my older DS. #2 does use a paci while #1 didnt. That may have to do with my case. SO, do whats in your heart but I am not concerned about my son and he sounds similar to your DD. Good luck, Mama!

Re: tell me about your 10-11month olds

I made the appt. I think the reason I even considered it is because she really doesn't babble. The words can wait but she SHOULD be babbling and knowing that her mouth can form sounds by now. I know she can hear and I know she understands words and even simple commands like "give mama a bite" but she won't even babble at me. I guess I just want some reassurance. We have our first appt mid-December to figure this out. Thanks everyone for the thoughts and help.

Re: tell me about your 10-11month olds

Personally, I wouldn't be worried. My DD didn't talk much at that age either, but would grab for things and point too. Now she is one of the most advanced 2 year olds I have met regarding language, speaking as long of sentences as I do. I don't think that from the info given there is enough reason to worry about a delay.

Re: tell me about your 10-11month olds

I think the milestone for babbling is 5-9 months. Since your dd was almost two months early she isn't too far off yet since she is developmentally a 9 month old. I would make the appointment with EI but my guess is she is probably fine.

Re: tell me about your 10-11month olds

My DD is 9 1/2 mos old and she babbles a LOT, but hasn't said or attempted any words. Well, I guess she says "dada" "baba" "yaya" but it's never directed at anything specifically. I guess if it were me in your shoes, I would make the appointment just on the off chance that something could be detected early, but I bet your DD is fine and just chooses to concentrate on fine-tuning her other abilities.

I would have the speech therapist evaluate her bc only the speech therapist can give the most accurate idea of where her speech is. You can feel free to PM with any questions or just to talk bc I have been there as a mom and a professional. I love to help!
EI folks are good!!! They see lots and lots of kids. If they see an issue I would go with it. Your tax money pays for it and little kids usually totally LOVE the attention.

Good luck

Re: tell me about your 10-11month olds

I have had many friends with children who weren't talking except for "mama" until they were around 3 years old! Including my niece, Frances. She's 5 now and speaks and interacts beautifully. But at 2 and 3 years old was hardly saying anything at all! It really is too early to worry, I think. I mean, I am worrying right now about my 20 month old stuttering and now I think maybe I shouldn't. I don't want that little sponge of a child to soak up any negative vibes from her mama!
