Quoting ~I'm his beauty~:" How many words can your toddler say? My son will be 2 in Janurary and he can only say Mama, Dada, and ... [snip!] ... But he has also suffered from alot of ear infections. Should i be worried? I've already been talking to a speech therapist."
Every kid really is different. My kids are night and day when it comes to speech.
My 3 1/2 son was barely talking at 2. He said shoes, juice, mama, dada and maybe some other random words. He did regress because his sister was born when he was 19 months old. It turned out that he did have a speech delay (and to a degree, he still does..although he's been catching up).
My 2 year girl(she turned 2 last week) is, imo, advanced in her speech. Her vocab is very large and can speak in 4-6 word sentences. Tantrums are bad because not only does she throw tantrums, she also argues with me or tells me "Me don't like you, mama." or "Why you so mean to me?".
She's much more demanding because she can tell me exactly what she wants. "Give me that ____ , mommy" It's so annoying.
My 2 year old speaks clearer than her older brother and although he's obviously more advance in way he picks and chooses words, they're almost at the same level when it comes to speech.
