Developmental Delays

I am not sure if I should be concerned or not. I see the ped. on Tuesday for a well check visit, so I will be bringing up all of these concerns but I was just wondering what you all think.

I am concerned about Ivy's speech and gross motor development.

Dylon only says a few words as well, he says mama and dada, and he used to say tickle a lot but hardly anymore, and now he says nanananananana whenever he wants something, if he is thirsty, hungry, wants to be held, needs to be changed. and thats ALLLL he says.... everyone keeps telling me not to worry. so idk. as for the walking, she sounds as if she almost has it, maybe she is

I've read that when they are working on learning something new they will regress in other areas.

oh hun! i seriously dought her delays are from yur surgery! dont beat your self up! every kid is different and some kids just need a little help....chloes p.t told me is VERY normal for some kids not to walk till 15/ 16 months and thats ok. you can def bring it up with your ped if your concerned to see if she needs p.t .

as far as the speech i have noticed kids will often say things and then they dont say it after a while....they just pick a few words. maybe she is focusing on somethign else? at this age its stil very normal for them not to say much! dont think all the other BF s are saying tons lol

and the nail cuts, diaper changes, i think most babies hate that lol dont worry!

Thanks everyone for your replies. I am sure you ALL are probably right and that she is just focusing on trying to balance and walk right now and has put her talking on the backburner. I will let you know what the Dr. says.

hugs! well, she says more than Kaylin does! lol. I was starting to get concerned too so I brought out what to expect the toddler years and it says that its normal and there just doing other things like climbing and walkin to worry about talking yet. as long as she understands what ur saying like ;'' go get the ball'' then i'll be shes ok and like kaylin will be talkin up a storm in no time! good luck tho and let us know what the ped says! my ped at her 12 month visit told me that if shes made no progess in talkin at 18 months wed talk more...

Sounds like you got some great advice and feedback already! I know Gabe and Ivy have both seemed a little behind in their development. He started walking at 14 months but is way behind in his communications skills. Just this past week started signing "more" and says "muh" while he's doing it. That's it...no mama, no dada, no nothing! I'm not sweating it yet though. If the 18 month mark comes and goes without much progress I'll start to worry. These babies came out a little early now they're taking their sweet time with all the rest. :)
