Sometimes it's nice to get advice from experts with a lot of letter degrees behind their names, but other times, you just need to hear what another parent (with a M.O.M. behind her name) has done that has worked. You've got questions? These moms have answers.

My son is almost 2 years old and still isn't talking what can I do?

3 answers
I know he knows words, he listens to me and understands when I tell him things like open your eyes. He also has already said words like bite and hi but for some reason he has just stopped talking even though nothing has changed, I can't figure out what to do to help him talk.

Is he in daycare? My son is 3 and he took forever to start talking. I was really worried when he was 2 and only said a few words and really only spoke to me and my husband. My doctor told me to read more books and ask him to tell me what he saw in the pictures and to only let him watch a little bit of education television (if any) during the day. Also, he recommended we put our son in a mothers day out or daycare program to help socialize him. He was very quite at first but now he is chatty cathy. Just give him some time. All children develope differently. Good luck!!!
I had the same problem with my son. My doctor wasnt too worried about it, but if he didnt start talking at 3 he would try speech therapy. At 2 1/2 he started talking, now at 5 yrs old I cant seem to make him be quiet.
My son will b 2 this thursday and hes talking more then what they should be. we bought the your baby can read program and worked with him with it, and i really think that helps. is the link if you want to look at it. The other thing is dont give up just keep working with your child
