29 Month Old - Lisp - Typical?

Is it pretty typical for a 29-month-old to have a lisp still? DD talks very well and has been talking for a while. She uses full sentences although some words aren't always super clear. But other people can usually understand what she's telling them.

For nearly all "S" and "Z" sounds, she puts her tongue against her teeth to create the sound.

Our son has has a pretty major speech impediment. So I tend to be a little overly concerned about this stuff so I thought I would ask. I'm sure it's probably fine that she's still doing that but wanted to see if that was pretty common.

TIA!

A lisp (th sound for s/z) is normal until closer to age 6. You can try encouraging saying it with the teeth closed if you want to work on it a little.
