Ds is 2, he's had all his needles & everything when supposed to, does he need something at 2 years? Or is that just aboriginal & Torres straight islanders?
I know he needs to go for a general check up but I don't need to rush if there's no needles involved. I can't find a bulk billing doc and money is a bit tight until I start getting paid regularly from the new job (which is paid fortnightly. Annoying!). So if I can wait a couple of weeks it would be better.
I really think I need to speak to a doc about about his speech so he will be going at some point. Can anyone put my mind at ease about it? I know he's behind but hoping he might just catch up a bit later. Like he did with walking. He was about 15 months when he started, months after his little friends, but was really steady straight away and running and climbing in no time like he started when they did.
He says a few things but concerns me that I really try to help him learn more but every vehicle on the road is a car no matter how much I say "no, bus, bus, can you say bus?" And next time wait for him to try first and its still car. Same with trucks. He says Dow instead of dog and woo woo for woof woof but says them for every animal too. I say bird tweet tweet over and over but next time it's still Dow woo woo. Also mid-pronounced things like saying die instead of bye. There are quite a few other things he does say but he seems to get something and when he's told good boy for saying it he just wants to say that all the time and not bother with learning more. I try so hard with reading books, pointing things out in the pictures, talking about everything we see when out, singing songs. I just don't know how worried I should be? Is he just taking a little more time than others like his walking? He is constantly babbling in a way that sounds like he's talking to you and tries to sing along with his wiggles DVDs in a way that sounds like similar vowel sounds but without saying the words if that makes sense? But still can't say wake up jeff even though he knows they are about to say it. Didn't mean for this post to get so much about his speech, its all just feeling a bit worse now I'm working so I can't be there trying to help him all the time which is upsetting for me. Do need to know about the needles though if anyone can help?
