Mine doesn’t say words as much, but noticed when I read to him he understand a ton of words. I make a point of pointing to objects in books and saying their name or asking him to point out something i.e. can you point to the apple on this page? And he does. Also using flash cards to teach words. It’s surprising how many they understand even if they only say 20 or slightly under 20 words. Just keep up the reading, no baby talk, and narrating what you’re doing and it’ll click at some point. Also exposure to children really helps. They see children talking and children won’t have the patience to figure out what they mean if they won’t talk, so it sorta forces them to.
My girl is the same age and maybe says a handful of words. She understands most so I’m not worried. She has been checked out and is perfectly healthy and on track otherwise. She will tak when she’s ready and has something to say. Otherwise just keep working on it with your little. But I wouldn’t worry at all
Mine is! She really only says a couple words day to day but knows everything we’re saying. Her dr said her trying to say other words counts even if it doesn’t sound like the word. 🤷♀️
He isn't a late talker they usually say at 2 years old they should know about 200 words some kids wait right till the end. It is too early still. Mine is similar heregross and fine motor skills are above average and she knows some words but she babbles a lot. My pediatrician says it is nothing to stress over at this age. My is also 19 months :)
He’s 19 months. Babbles a lot. But doctor says he should know 10-20 words. He can probably say 3 consistently. He can hum his favourite songs and the alphabet though. He understands commands too. It’s like if I say “the cat goes vroom!” He knows which toy is a car and will play with it or bring it for us to play together. But he won’t repeat after me if I say, “car or vroom”. It’s so confusing. Lol
