Q.

1.5yr old doesn' t say much words

My 1.5yr old daughter knows the word mom and dad, and '  nana' (milk).
But she won' t say other words. Although she understands everything she hasn' t learnt many words. Should I be concerned ?

There is no need to be concerned at this stage.Be patient and keep on telling her the names of people and all objects. Start reading to her regularly.
