This age they will start with small words. Slowly they recognise the words and they will try to speak. Always talk with him and tell again and again. Mingle him with your family members. Some alphabets ,some letters they cannot pronounce. Show objects and ask him about colour, name, number etc.
He will speak normally after few months. Don't worry. Try like a teacher. Every month you can observe their progress.
Gradually will speak...
If your baby understands your words and follows you,no worries...
Give some instructions kind like get the bottle,book,ball like show the things and be pointing it,he will be knowing and tell in a way like describing the colour or size of the object...
So that he can learn colours...
You need to sit with your baby and speak for sometime,teach alphabets,numbers,simple words...
If your baby not at all speaking one word,
Do once check with the Paediatrician...
It's normal......If he is speaking 3-4 words with meaning then don't wry gradually he will speak.... Some babies will take time to speak... Wait till 2 yrs of age.... He will speak more words...
Thank you all, he can say, amma, nana, tata, babba, hi, bye. He communicate by showing and pointing things he want, he understand what we say to him and follows what we ask him to do. But only that he cannot talk. He has elder brother too, he speaks so well.
Take care Pavitra. He can learn more from his brother by playing.
Don't worry Pavithra,
Soon he will talk,he can easily talk with the help of his elder brother...
Try all the suggestions mentioned above...
He mingles with my elder sin well but he doesn't talk, my elder one is super talkative
Same here Pavithra.My elder daughter started speaking very clearly at 18 months , my second daughter is gradually started speaking this year after turning age 2.Till then she spoke very few words.Though she knew colours, names of fruits, veggies , names of things in house but didn't speak more words , soon after 2 nd bday lot of improvement in talking.Last year she spoke her own words which had no meaning.So don't worry.Make ur baby speak more.Dont understand his actions, when he points towards things he need act as if u didn't understand & make him speak about his simple needs for toys, or to c tv etc.Thru playing with ur elder son he will learn to speak & follow above suggested.
Darshana, I do act sometimes that i dont understand what he is trying to say but instead of trying talking he cries n makes us do what he wants.
Don't force him. Some times they can stop talking.
Pavithra don't give in to his crying.Later it will become his habit to use crying for his needs & exactly same habit my second daughter had to cry instead of telling what she wanted like water, food , toys etc.Here u have to show patience but a bit firmness too in making him speak at least 1 or 2 simple sentence on day.Dont frighten or scold him for speaking but he should b forced to say one sentence a day.I too did same for a 3 or 4 days it was same she crying & I didn't respond then later she started saying gradually that's she wants water, Apple etc .I had seen my niece daughter not speaking even after age 2 + bcoz they never made her say words , always they responded to her habit of crying or pointing at things & it became for her habit to only point or cry for her needs & on consultation doctor gave this idea to force the child to speak ( without scolding & shouting at baby)by not reacting to crying or pointing.They did followed doctor's advice & issue was solved. Interesting thing is doctor itself forced child to speak he irritated her by saying simple wrong words during consultation & out of anger she spoke for the first time correctly .From then onwards she started speaking .That was doctor technique to make her speak & he was happy with her response.R u in nuclear family now?
I asked about nuclear family bcoz kids who r in joint family speak a bit early then compared to kids of nuclear family.May not b true in all families but I too had same experience & seen some kids of jointly family speaking before age 2 & meanwhile Pavithra familiarize ur baby with name of 1 or 2 fruits, veggies, colours etc everyday.If he knows already it's well & good & if he doesn't knows u can start now.Dont make him learn or by heart names but just tell him about fruits , veggies etc & later after few days casually ask him to tell names of things he heard from u & ask ur elder child to help u in this case.It will b fun time for both.
@Darshana Yes, we are family with 4 members, we recently moved to canada, because of the current situation we cannot ask him to mingle to other kids.
My friends also there in Canada. They are living in Montreal from 7years. If you want any information they will help you.
