    It is not so easy to answer this question... I would recommend you to take him to pediatrician, that could be the first step for solving your dilemma.

    I agree that it would not hurt to have your baby checked out at to doctor.
    But it is my belief that all babies progress at their own rates. I have been through five myself. I had one who was very slow to walk. She didn't really walk until she was almost 2. Another I could not potty train  until nearly age 4!!!
    I would also make sure that I was reading to my baby as often as possible, I think it's important for them to engage in language as much as possible, especially if you think they're falling behind.

    All children learn at different rates.  I was in the lowest reading group in first grade, then I was in the highest in 2nd.  My mom panicked that I had trouble reading, but she just had to be patient.  To help a child talk more you need to talk to them all the time.  Read them stories, tell them stories, anything really.  Read everything out loud..  You should feel so sick of talking by the end of the day.  If some time and that doesn't help then maybe there is something but I doubt it really.

    Your toddler is a late talker. Toddlers by that age should have at least 50 words in their vocabulary.   You are at fault here.  You are not being an effective parent.

    In order for toddlers to talk, you have to be constantly communicating to him and persuade him to talk.  Do not just do baby talk to him and uh and ah.  Talk to him , have him talk to you and reasonably respond.  Most babies talk intelligibly and have a vast range of vocabulary by the time they are 18 months.  My suggestion: read to him and play educational games with him! Don't automatically give him things without asking him what he wants first! Lady, be creative in communicating with your child.  Buy instructional and educational tools from the Montesorri school- they do help infants and toddlers how to talk.  Be a teacher!  Be more proactive in your parenting! Something is truly amiss here.  You have to do a better job as a mother.

    have his hearing checked. my grandson wasn't talking because he wasn't hearing very well. so when the fluid was removed, he started jabbering away.
