toddler speech

Question for all of you my baby whis is going to be two in a few weeks only says mostly basic words. and a coupe of three word sentences. Most of the words he does say i seem to be the only one who understands him.. Is this normal?? Also he doesnt go to daycare (love him too cant afford it full time) does this make a huge difference? or is the lack of word knowledge be something i should bring up to his doctor?

    I do not think it is anything to worry about. But I would ask the doctor just to put your mind at ease. If there is anything to be concerned about the doctor can point you in the right direction. I know that there are speech programs through the local districts here that start at age 2. My sister gets services for her twins.

      It's always good to share your concerns with your doctor, but I do think this is normal. All our boys seemed to take longer with their speech, especially our last son, who is three. But he talks up a storm now.

        Thank you all for the opinions my mom has been telling me it was normal. Its just hard for a mom not to be worried. To be on the side of ahead of the game I will mention it with his doctor. He talks and talks I usually catch every other word and can get the drift of what he is trying to say to me, I feel awful because sometimes he is really trying to tell me something and when I cant understand what he wants he get extremely frustrated.

        And yes he is very active he never stops running, jumping or climbing. He has been a mover since womb he is hardly ever still.
