Baby babble

  • Should I be concerned that my almost 7 month old doesnt really babble? He does alot of squeling and yelling but not the normal baby babble. Thanks in advance for your advice!

  • Every child develops at his or her own pace...but that being said, I would bring up your concerns to your pediatrician. It never hurts to make sure that nothing is wrong.

  • Completely agree with MommyRN... every baby is different and develop at their own pace. A doctor will validate this, but 7 months is way too early to be worried in my opinion.

  • I agree with the advice given. As a pediatric nurse practitioner, I see babies who hardly ever babbled and become chatterboxes. Just take one day at a time. Make sure you read to your baby and speak the way you would to an adult, minimizing baby talk. Run your concerns by your pediatrician so he/she can monitor your baby's development.
