Read the thread about HELP..is he slow?

All children do things at different ages and I wouldnt worry too much. Is she walking and doing other things? Speak to your HV if you are worried.

caroline18, the little one I look after is 21 months and she has 5 words, mummy, daddy, more, down and miaou.

If she understands simple instructions , do you want a drink etc, I wouldn't worry too much.

Caroline, know how you feel. Our DD is 4 and only now starting to come out with words (this could be due to the fact her real mother used to leave her in her cot most of the day when she was younger (she only started walking at 2 when she met my DS1). However our DS2 is now 25 months old and only has 3 words, those being ta (for thank you), ta-ta (bye) and daddy. He certainly isn't left in his cot all day (doesn't even have a sleep during the day anymore!). Got the HV coming this thursday about this, so if she gives me any useful advice I shall pass it on to you

If she points and is communicating in other ways, and points out things of interest you do not need to worry about speech at 18 months
