Q.

Talking

Doctor, i would like to know when should my LO start talking.

She is 14 nearly 15 months old and only says gaga,haha but no actual words like bye or mom etc

Is there something wrong with her?
When should she start talking?

The age at which children start talking is very variable. At around 15 months she should be saying 'mama', 'dada', but sometimes even that comes a bit later.
