So my daughter will be 3 in February and I am a little worried about her speech. She talks a lot and I understand most of what she says. However I am noticing people who are not used to her have some issue understanding her. I know one major problem is she cannot say her s sound when there is a consistent after the s, like in snack(nack),smile(mile), but she can say it when it is followed by a vowel like same, sock, words like that. I do not know if I should be worried. She also cannot say yogurt and I have tried to help her on that a couple of times. It does not sound at all like yogurt.
Another thing she has started in the past month or so is messing up when she calls me mommy, sometimes she will say daddy. She will say "Daddy, Mommy, read me a book" She is doing the same with my husband but will call him Mommy then correct it. Not sure what is causing this because it is fairly new and she has done fine until recently.
She is not due to go into the dr until her 3 year check up so I am just wondering. She does not go to school or anything but will start preschool next fall and I just want her to be prepared.
She is really smart(at least I think so) she knows most of the letters in her alphabet by sight and will pick letters off of signs and people clothing, even out of books. We read a lot to her and she loves it. She talk nonstop about anything and everything. I am just wondering if this is things I should really be worried about or just normal toddler/preschooler stuff
