Talking

Post by crysty1e on Wed Dec 15, 2010 4:33 pm

Natalee still isn't saying anything yet . . .
She nods yes and no when you ask her something, but no words.
She started saying "mama" and "dada" months ago, but has even seemed to stop saying that.
She squawks a lot like she is saying a bunch of words.
The doctor said it is because Bryaden is talking for her, so she sees no need to talk.

How old were your kids when they started "talking"?

Eh, I dunno. Rosemary has always done things in her own time. She is much more advanced in some areas, but a little slower in others. I hate how people try and compare their kids, like it's a race or something.

...Blah Reese was around 6 weeks early so he is a bad kid to "compare" too.

He didn't really start talking at all (where you could understand him) until he was 2-2 1/2.

If your worried about it bring it up to the doctor. Or go out on your own and get her a speech therapist. Its not like it will hurt anything! But how old is she again?

it took kaylie awhile to start talking we had to put her in speech therapy but thats all covered with insurance, so if you cant do that, i suggest google-ing sign language for babies and teacher her signs that way she will be able to communicate with you and be able to tell you what she wants and if you keep saying the word with the sign then she will eventually start saying the word.

i was against teaching her sign language when we first had her but now i regret it bc it helped her so much and im deff going to do it with the twins

Rosemary signed too, from a really young age. People were always really weird about it though. Don't know why.

I feel like Mackenzie has ALWAYS been a talker..... even when she was an infant she was making noises constantly. She probably really started talking as soon as I took the pacifier away from her. I took the paci away at about 12-18 months and it seemed like overnight she was talking..... and before I knew it, short phrases, and complete sentences, and now she won't stop!

I was talking to Brad about this the other day. It's hard for me since he is the one with her all day long. I have him convinced on the idea that she should only get it at nap and bed time.

Brayden never had one at all, so I'm new to this Pacifier thing.

The doctor mentioned that if you teach them to sign they might fall on that and talk even later.

Wesson started saying actual words at around 12-14 months. Starting with mama, dada, baba (bottle).

Now he doesn't shut up. It started up at random one day. He just started talking and...never stops.

I didn't do anything, I just point to things and say, "What is that? Can you say milk?" I do that with everything. Colors, shapes, animals...

Thats why we never taught Reese how to sign even though we were told we needed too. I was to worried he wouldn't even want to talk because signing would be much easier. I'm glad I didn't. I think making him talk worked much better for him.

Eh, Wesson does sign language but he does it while saying the word.

Thats different though for a child that IS talking and one that doesn't say much. I can see how they would rely on signing more than just talking.

She said dog . . . I think this morning when she pointed at the dog toy.
Then she threw the toy at Copper so I'm assuming that is what she was saying.

The best way to do the pacifier: I waited until Kenny was at drill for a whole weekend so no outside interference.... I stocked up on groceries, so we wouldn't need to make any public appearances..... and then just cold turkey took it on Friday afternoon, by Sunday morning she didn't even care anymore. It was really a piece of cake. Naps were hard but I snuggled with her on the couch and held her until she fell asleep... it was pretty easy really.

Reese started biting the nipples off so we told them they were broke and he needed to throw them away. He threw them away himself and after that no more pacifiers. This all happened on the trip from NC to AR. I was like "great time you decide you want to get rid of pacifiers Reese". But he acted like nothing had changed at all!

It was Mackenzie's first birthday, so didn't really understand "broke" yet! Smile

Yeah I think we might try the "They are broken" method. I think it's hard for her because she still only has two teeth. The doctor said at her last checkup that it appears she is getting 6 teeth in at once. I think her mouth still hurts. I call her the upside down rabbit because she only has two bottom teeth right in the front lol

I was thinking about that. It sucks that she is getting teeth so late. I know babies are crabby when they are teething BUT 1 and 1/2 year olds are even worse LOL

Poor girl! Has to be terrible with no teeth lol

Yeah Reese totally took to the "they are broke" method. Taking the pacifier away might also help with her talking!

Does she chew on any rough things? Give her the Gerber biter biscuits or something. From what I've read, chewing on tough/bumpy/rough things can help the gums break for the teeth to pop through.
