My 18 month old son doesn’t seem to be talking as well as my daughter did at that age. Should I be concerned?
All children develop at their own pace, so do not try to compare when children reach developmental milestones. An 18 mos old should be able to say 8-10 words and follow some simple commands, such as “give this to daddy”. If you have any concerns about the way in which your son is developing it is important to bring those questions to your pediatrician so a complete developmental assessment can be done.
