Q.

2yr old not talking yet

Gud day, i have a 2.2 yr old son he doesn''t talk yet but he understands everything very well. i should add that i had another baby right after him he is 1yr old now. could this be the reason that he didn''t have time to develop this talking thing or is there anything that i should worry about. Should i take him to doctor or just wait as many have advised me already?
regards

This is very common especially with little boys of this age. It seems that your son can hear normally as he can understand everything when you talk to him.This also probably does not have anything to do with the arrival of his baby brother.He should start to talk fairly soon, but if he is not talking by the age of 3 years he should be seen by a speech therapist.
