Re: How much should my 15 month old be talking?

I wouldn't worry about it. So many people get caught up with what is "normal" and compare their kids to everybody else's.
Each kid is different and develops at different rates.

Re: How much should my 15 month old be talking?

My daughter is 2 1/2 and she will still go off in a tangent in her own language with some words I can understand tossed in there. I'd be more concerned if he didn't even use his own language. It just takes time, before you know it he won't shut up.

Re: How much should my 15 month old be talking?

My eldest only said about 5ish coherent words. (about what dh and I said, we were both first borns). By my third who is now 16mths, we have closer to 12ish. Simply because he picks up on what the other two are saying.

At this point, you should be getting the gist of his ramblings to important things. ie he should be able to get you to get him more juice, nummy (if you are still nursing), maybe even his favorite toy. Through signs or signals and his mumblings. kwim? I guess he should be able to communicate with you in some form is what I am trying to say. That was what our pedi was most concerned with. He explained to us that that was a good sign of language development at this age, especially with a first born.

My older son didn't really talk at all before about 20 months. He did say daaey and mahi for daddy and mommy and maybe 'baaah' for ball but that was just about it, honestly. Between 20-24 months his vocab really took off and it seemed he would double or triple his vocab almost dailey. At 4 years old now, we can NOT shut him up

Don't worry! It varies so much! At 15 months old my 2nd child could speak complete sentences, but my 3rd child could only say mama. In fact, we taught him to sign at 15 months old because he was so frustrated about not being able to tell us what he wanted that he just screamed for everything.
