Hi Mummies & Daddies, My son is already 20mo but he has yet to talk. He can only say 'Papa', 'Mama', 'Jie Jie' & '臭臭'. According to PD, he has to say two words like 'Don't Want' by 2yo. Is there any problems in him? Does he need to see a speech therapist?

Hi~i think its all right for now. Some kids require more time than others when it comes to speech or language. U can try to read books to him and tell him why communication is important and encourage him to speak up. Monitor him for another few months. Talk to PD ur concerns and ways that might boost ur son confidence to speak more.

Some kids start taking only after 24 months. Keep talking and reading to him. Also sometimes kids pick up English faster than Mother tongue.

If your mummy instinct feels something is not right, best to take to speech therapist. at least it'll give you peace of mind.

Einstein only started to talk at 3. Hope that gives you comfort. It also is no harm to see a speech therapist :)
