Q.

18 month old milestones

Could you please advise me what milestones my little girl should be doing by now? What is the norm with this?

She says a couple of words but nothing major and I was just concerned.

This is quite normal although many children do start using 3 word sentences by this age. You must not worry as long as she is starting to say a few words now.Be patient and she will start to talk,but if she is not talking by 2 and a half years she should be seen by a speech therapist.
