Do you know the typical development stages and milestones for an 18 month old? After eighteen months, your baby has passed several different growth and learning stages. Make sure they are developing on schedule, and recognize signs of delayed cognitive and communication growth.
Is your child developing on track? No two children develop, grow, and learn in the same way or at the same pace. However, they do develop in certain predictable ways, as show in our videos. Help Me Grow helps parents know, and know what to do next if they think their child might be delayed. Visit helpmegrowmn.org/ for more information or to refer a child for a free developmental screening today.

    My daughter Lilly is 18 months old and she is walking very well without support, she can say cat,hello, bye bye, mama, dada, bubble and a few other words too. She also has a bad temper bless her if no one gives her what she wants. Lilly's doctor said my daughter is very intelligent and that shes going to do very well later in life.

    I honestly believe that all toddlers learn at their own pace. My Son did not speak until he was 3 1/2.
    If I would of taken him to a doctor regarding his speech., he would of been labelled as autistic.
    My Son was not in the spectrum at 3 1/2 and he is not in the spectrum now.

    My son was NOT speaking at 18 months and, in fact, did not talk until around 24 months when he entered daycare. He is now 14 years old, in several advanced classes in high school, and is doing very well. Parents, sometimes our babies develop on their own time. Sometimes they just need a little nudge! :)

      @Jenni H It's true. My son is 18 months and when he counts he points or has objects that he is showing the numbers with. I am very hands on with his development but he actually started doing that on his own. Some children understand the concept of counting rather early but most are repeating what they hear.

      @J McK At 18 months my oldest could count to 10. It was route memorization and she didn't understand what she was doing but she could count. Also some very gifted children can actually count and understand what the numbers mean as early as 12 months. It's incredibly unlikely but definitely possible.

      @J McK My 18mo old can also count to 10, but she misses numbers and needs me to count with her. We've been practicing counting since she was 1yr old. Some kids pick up verbal skills faster than others. It could be BS, but it might also be a fast learner.

    I have a 17 month old who used to point at everything non stop now he rarely points at all. He just tells me what he wants. Or says what he thinks is interesting instead of pointing at it. For example:instead of pointing at a train he will say “CHOO CHOO TRAIN!” Is this normal?? He talks non stop. Repeats words and mimics us. Follows simple instructions. Everything in this video except for pointing anymore. It’s really worrying me.

    My son learned "Up" when he was about 10 months. He'll say Mama and Dada, but it's usually "Mamamamamamama," not a clear two-syllable name. What worries me (and why I'm looking at videos) is that he hasn't learned many words since. He's 20 months now and mostly just babbles, "Durka durka durka." Every doctor gives you one of the two worst answers. 1) Every child is different, don't worry about it. 2) Serious problems. You should run a hundred tests right away.

My son started interacting more and saying a bit more, follow your gut and be his biggest advocate 😊

    Obviously, an 18-month-old is a toddler, but is it normal to still refer to them still as babies? Like, for example, instead of saying that I've got two teens and a toddler at home, I'd say that I've got two teens and a baby at home? As a 28-year-old woman who doesn't have kids of her own, but plenty of nieces and nephews, I hear both terms being thrown around a lot - one of my sisters even still refers to her 2-year-old as a baby - and I was just wondering if people in general still call tots babies, even though it technically isn't correct?
    Ugh, I'm not sure if this question makes much sense.

      +Daisy Maha well now at 2 in just a few days. Her walking has improved a lot. She sometimes get her falls when running. But even that is slowly getting better. Her words are improvising good too. She saying more words then daddy all the time. She can even say about 2 or more sentences at times. Even does a great job memorizing the songs from your favorite cartoon shows she sings along too. Pointing however... not too much! Hoping that will improve once she is 3. :)

They did say she maybe just a little late on speech. Because back then she was not saying much. Now at 2 years old she does say a few words including a few sentences (2 or 3 maybe) . Her pointing...is ok!, her walking has improve great

He talks but it's not anything I can understand. He walks amazing if I hold just one hand. He walks with holding really well. I'm trying to find what is realistic goals for my child? It's made me feel like I'm not doing my father role well, it stinks! Doesn't help he's up at 430 am wide awake ready to go haha... Thanks for your comment - good to know we aren't alone! Can u or anyone recommend what is Good for him to watch or Listen to that will help him and not put him in a trance? These baby shows and baby first we don't always allow because he'll get in a trance sometimes? Thanks!
