    hi momshies, my 26 months old baby boy is very smart, active tot , playful, joyful, so clingy to mommy, sometime oh not sometime, every time he's so silly. But one thing bothers on my mind, when he was 18 months the only clear words he can say is "dada" for daddy and "mama" for mommy and lots of gestures and action, he can follow simple instruction, can point a color when you ask, can point body parts when ask, he knows everything the only problem is he don't say a word. Now that he reached 2 years old, he can say the "da ddy" with a pause "mo mmy" , he says "dede" for milk "mamam" for water "ed" for red "biew" for blue "gin" for green, can recite abc, 123, but not so clear but I'm thankful at least he can speak some word already. He's Pedia said its just a simple delay.

    My daughter was talking in syllables that we could understand before she turned one. My mother said that girls learn to talk earlier than boys. My nephew who is 2 years older than my daughter learned to speak clearly at age 5. But maybe a child will learn to speak earlier if you you can give more attention.

    I agree with this one. In my experience my daughter utters syllables before her first birthday. She has advanced vocabulary and speech when compared to my 2 boys during toddler years. My youngest is now 1 year and 4 months but also has a few words he could completely utter and is more fond of actions. I guess they really develop at different rates.

    My advice is for you to keep on talking to him without the "baby talk" language or tone. This one really helps. I have also read an article that it is good to introduce plenty of new words rather than restrict them because you think a baby wouldn't understand. Example rather than limiting to blue, red, green, yellow and orange, why not introduce pink, lavender, light green, aqua blue and so on.
