A 33-year-old female asked:

My daughter is 14 months and doesn't talk a lot or walk what is wrong?

Developmental concrn: At 14 mo most kids are at least pulling to stand and cruising along furniture.Some don't take independent steps until 15 months. Most at that age jabber but say only a few words, but understand more than they use.I would bring these issues up at your next office visit and see if this needs to be explored further.
