When did your child start talking?

My son is 15 months and only says mamma, dadda and nonononono (but rarely). Did anyone have any late talkers?? He's on track with every other developmental milestone and understands what we say and responds to it but just has no words yet.

My baby is saying words and she is 18 months, she has been trying to communicate for some time.  I think I understand her more than anyone else right now.  I was told that she is ahead of schedule.  Some words arent even close though like Cookie Monster is Tizi Maza.

Tizi Maza, hahah, that is too cute.  Around 2 years is when they really start talking and that was the case for my children too.

My son was about 18 months when he was trying to say words.  My nephew (who just turned 2 yrs. old), is doing well with his speech!  Everytime we see him, there are more & more words that he says, clear as a bell! It's amazing when you don't see them everyday, how much progress they really make!

Both my kids started saying single words around 8-9 months. Mama, Dada, car, ball .

They were both early talkers. My mom told me I was the same way. Maybe it's genetic!
