how many words Lock Rss

hi i have a 14 month old and was just wondering what other words your children are saying now he is saying mum dad ta and thats about it just wanting to see if he should be saying a bit more yet and what words other 14-16 months are saying


OK my son is 16 months on the 22nd of this month and so far he says;

oh dear
oh no
doh (dorothy the dinosaur)

I think thats about it from memory, there's a couple in his playgroup that say a lot more and a few that say a lot less. I think its an individual thing for them.

My son is 14th months old and he can say :
Spud (his dads name)
Grandad (he says nandad)
JoJo (our dogs name)
Em (His Aunties name)
Azz (his cousins name Shaz)
ta ta
bubba (he calls his bottle that)
Sam (sandwich, when he first said this i thought he said my name till he was pointing to a sandwich)
mote (remote)

Thats all i think, he trys to say other words but i have figured them out yet. lol

i thought this topic would be the perfect time to tell you all about a website called tinytalk,i guess initially it was started for the deaf but i found it fascinating ,as ive always wanted to learn how to do sign language and they say this is the perfect way to start to understand your child before they can actually talk .i have ordered their book and they have heaps of other things like flash cards dvd's ,any way thought id mention it

thanks for all your replies they all sound like they are doing well i guess he will start when he is ready


Hey Fiona!
Joel is saying Mum, Dad, Yes, NO, Ta, Star, Uh uh, uh oh, Hello and few jumbled words.
But remember that all babies are unique! Your your bub will develop her sense of 'tongue' in her own time!
Joel is like a parrot at the moment so i have to watch my tongue because he has repeated the S**T word twice now!! Opps!
If you want to teach bub a few more, I found when they are in the bath and Shout out words really loud and in different tones-Then they try to copy! Then once they learn the word-Start refering to what they mean!
In time they will learn! But I find that this game has really helped
