Varies by child: Although there is much variation from child to child, the following are some accepted milestones. Cooing by 2 months, consonant sounds and babbling by 9 months, 1 recognizable "word" by 13 months, 4-6 words by 15 months and 10-12 words by 18 months. At 2 years a child should make 2 word sentences and be 50% understandable to strangers, 75% by 3 years and close to 100% by 4 years.

Get checked: Usually if there is a coexistant illness like a cold, it is just due to that, however if it keeps up i would take your baby to the pediatrician. Recommend baby tylenol (acetaminophen) and/or Ibuprofen to keep the fever down.

Iron: A diet low in iron could definitely affect learning- normal thinking and processing skills. That is just one aspect of an unhealthy diet. A diet should be well balanced, contain, fruits, vegetables, good souces of protein and not be loaded with sugar and fat. Sugar drinks provide no nutrients and can replace nutrients that would be found in other foods.
