Not sure what to expect or what is normal, just curious to hear how other kids around the same age are progressing. How well did your child speak at 15 months?

  • Every child is different. My first talked heaps by 15 months (50 words in two languages), the second about 5 words in one language.

  • My DD didn’t say much at all. She could say just few words. All kids are different one from another, so don’t worry.

  • Child 1 – lots of words, putting words together in to two word sentences. Learned new words quickly
    Child 2 – very few words and those said were not always clear or precise
    Child 3 – a mix of the two. Babbles a lot but not a huge amount of words, does have more clarity then #2 did at the same age

  • My girl had a few words by 15 months but it was really at that stage that her learning and speaking exploded. She’s 20 months now and has quite a lot of words but hasn’t learnt to string them together yet.

  • My son is 15 months old, he says mum, dad, sissy and when we say words to him he will try to repeat them. He understands when we tell.him to pick something up or sit etc.

  • Mine was not speaking well until 2 year-old. Now, she is 3 and speaks perfectly.

  • my girls were pretty good talkers at this age and my boy just had his little set of words that he liked to practise over and over. just talk to your child and encourage it but be warned- they will talk your ear off soon enough. i love how they pronounce things though- so cute.
    my son would and still does say “b” for boobie lol

  • My daughter was almost speaking full sentences at 15 months, but has always been quite advanced for her age in the vocabulary and speech department. She has just turned 3 and speaking to her, you would think she was 5 or 6 based on the sophistication of her language.

  • One of mine did ok, the other didn’t really speak until he was about 3 years old and hasn’t stopped since. (now in prep and top of the class). This had a little to do with his brother always talking for him. But don’t stress they are all different.

  • I had 2 girls and both were speaking well for their age.
    They were real little chatterboxes.
    They are both in their teens now and nothing has changed.
    The tricky bit is getting them to be quiet now.LOL.

  • My daughter would talk but not very well compared to another girl born on the same day. She is almost 3 & we have only just found out she is tongue tied the other month when we took her to the doc for croup. He said if it hasn’t fixed it’s self by the time she’s 4 then to bring her back as it can affect her speech. Others have said the dentist will do it until a certain age, then a doctor has to do it.

  • My daughter is a chatterbox. She is saying lots and lots of words. Although she was slow in other areas (she only just started walking). They are all different and develop at different stages.

  • My daughter is nearly 15 mths doesn’t say much. But uses hand signals. E.g shakes and nods head for yes and no does sign for finishes, points to mouth to say hungry or teeth hurting. Taps carers chest for milk ( that came from breastfeeding lol). Says dad mum and tries to say her sister name gaby that comes out dab

  • My girl started talking almost full sentences by the time she was 15 months… she is 3.5 yrs now and a chatter box.

  • I cannot answer this but am just as eager to hear what others have to say!
