My youngest daughter and her talking

My youngest daughter, who is now my middle child, will be two years old in June of this year. Last summer, when she turned one, she started talking a little bit. My husband and I thought she would continue to talk, or at least try to talk. However, one reason or another, she just decided to stop talking, and only say a few words.

However, recently, she seems to have decided to try and talk more. She is saying more words. It certainly seems as though she is trying to say some more words.

I have to say it's kind of nice. My husband and I have been trying to have her talk more for a while now, and it's nice to see that she's finally trying a little more now. It will definitely make our lives easier, as she will be able to tell us what she wants, and such. Hopefully, she continues to try talking more.

I do look forward to her talking, but I'm sure there will be a time, when I'm asking myself the same thing.

My parents tell us that for a child to talk in a natural way, let the child be with other toddlers.

Every child has his/her own time to start talking, walking... So just be patient, as she will start talking and, yes! One day you'll think.. oh, please l, shut up!! That's what"s happening to my husband and I right now! (Note: our son is now 17) ;)

It makes a lot of sense. I can certainly see how that would help. Thanks!

Sometimes, it's easy to forget that each child is different. I'm sure one day, I may be in the same situation as you. We'll see.

I'd suggest that you continue to talk to your child but skip the 'baby talk'. It delays the progression of the child to actually talk.

We've generally never used "baby talk" with our kids. We use the same words or tone with them as we would a friend or something, but we've never used "baby talk". I never thought that it was a good idea. It wasn't really my style either.
