Children have different levels of development. Some can start as early as 10 months while others start around 1.5-2 years old. No need to stress and just allow your baby to develop in his/her own time

Generally nothing to worry. Each child starts saying words at different ages. Give it a few more months. If still worried, just check with your doctor on the next visit.

My boy now going 18 months, able to say a few syllables but wont call me mama or his daddy papa. I guess he is doing this on purpose 😂

No need to worry. Converse with your child more often. She/he’ll get there :)

No worries. Will come eventually. Keep trying conversing with ur baby
