Today when I picked him up they were talking about him speaking and how he doesn't speak much with them but they have heard him say some words to me. His key worker said "you are going to have to let us hear you speak soon Kittenboy"
I am now worried he is behind with his talking and this is why they said that
He can say:
Dada Mumma Gandad Cat Dog Sock (it's just the "ock") Fank oo (for thank you) All gone (well approximation of) Yoghurt (again more an approximation) Uh oh True (one of the cat's names) George (from a book) Good
He isn't walking yet either. He cruises holding on to furniture and will walk with his push along cart / push along walker but he hasn't stood or taken any steps unaided yet.
Is he behind?
I'm more worried about his speech than his walking as he always has really waxy ears and some big old lumps come out which I worry may affect his hearinf
Thank you............he's my first (can you tell?) and I don't have any experience of babies so I don't know what's normal, what's a problem etc
I think (now you have all re-assured me) that she was probably refering to him being quiet at nursery, not commenting on his words as these don't seem to matter as they all get different amounts at different stages
He is probably just a bit shy and doesn't babble much with them
to you all for the re-assurance and not making me feel too silly
