Q.

Is this normal for 20mnths?

Hi Doctor

My daughter of 20 months is amazing me, not that I''m complaining though. She is fully potty trained and only wears a nappy in the evening and she wears panties during the day. She can talk a full sentence even though the words are not very straight but she manages to say a 6 to 8 word sentence correctly. Is this normal for 20 month old? She has 2 of her friends aged 24& 26 months not anywhere close to doing things that she is doing.

I''m not complaining though just a bit amazed about the things she does for her age

Your daughter is certainly very smart. She should just about be using 3 word sentences by now.Her potty training progress has also been remarkable.
