Can you tell me about language development in early childhood?

Can you tell me about language development in early childhood?

Language development: I tell my parents that a child should say 2 to 3 words at 15 months, 2 word sentences at 2-years-old, be 50% understandable at 2-years-old, 75% understandable at 3-years-old, and 100% understandable at 4-years-old.

I'm 18 and have a child who's 2. After pregnancy/ weight loss, i've gone from a c to an a cup. Did early pregnancystunt my development or will i grow more?

No. : At 18 yo, if you had your first period at a normal age, you were done with growing (several years ago actually). Your cup size went down because w weight loss you loose fat and most of the breast tissue is made up if fat. It happens to all women who loose weight. During pregnancy and lactation breast size increases, then usually goes back down to near pre pregnancy size (some stay a bit larger). ...Read more

Period is 7 days late, had signs is was coming but nothing... Had negative test result today... Could it be to early to detect ? What should I do now

Wait it out: If you did the test correctly, at 7 days after the due date for period, you are not likely to be pregnant. A period may be missed due to anovulatory cycle. If you do not get your next period, it would be time to see your doctor.

Yes doctor my child has some devlopement delays like late crawling, standing will his speach too be delayed he speaks just two words @ 21 months?

Yes doctor my child has some devlopement delays like late crawling, standing will his speach too be delayed he speaks just two words @ 21 months?

Speech delay: Motor development (crawling and standing) happens independently of speech development. So one does not necessarily have to occur with the other. That being said, a 21 month old usually knows several words, and is starting to put together two-word sentences. If he indeed only says two words total, i recommend making an appointment with his doctor. He should have a hearing test as well. ...Read more
