Hi all my ds2 doesn't talk that much at all and his older brother spoke alot more at his age. He can say things like " mum" and " brother" "bye" etc but is pretty lazy with things like please and thankyou. he normally waves for thsnkyou too! is this normal???

Mine is the same. But he understands a lot and will happily point out various animals / vehicles / colours etc so I haven't been too stressed. My hv just wanted to know if he understood what we were saying and he clearly does. I'm hoping the floodgates open soon!

Knocked- yeh mines the same. He understands alot more that what he says. For example go and give this to your brother, sit down and get your shoes on etc I'm thinking its 2nd child syndrome?! wink

It might be worth getting his ears checked. A friend of mine 's little girl was very slow to talk and eventually it transpired she had had an ear infection many months before which had not been treated which was significantly impairing her hearing. She has now come on leaps and bounds but at the time we were all very concerned about her. Good luck.
