In brief: It depends.
Not all babies develop at the same pace or reach milestones at the same time.
If you ask a group of moms when their children started talking you will get a different answer from each. Some babies take longer to learn how to coordinate their tongue and mouth to form sounds. Try not to worry; your daughter should be talking up a storm soon - and then you'll wish she would shut up!
