It can be really stressful when your child isn’t hitting their milestones on cue. The good news is that there is so much you can do (and so many people who can help) should your little one need a little extra guidance. So hang in there, mama. Your kiddo is so lucky (and happy) to have you.
P.S. To promote speech development, play games that allow lots of opportunity for words and sounds, like the Fisher-Price Little People Animal Friends Farm.
