Hi op. My dd is 3.7 and has had 3 episodes of this since 2.6. Each have been quite bad and then disappeared within 7-10 days.
A salt friend of mine said it is very normal at this age as their brains go ahead of their speech for a short while as they're learning so rapidly!
Her advice was to always let her finish her sentences no matter how long it took, not to cut in and not to mention it or draw attention to it. It's gone completely every time and the last was just one month ago. Each time it's over I notice a significant leap in her speech and Lang

My DD has suffered from a stammer for some time. Like the PP, it comes and goes. Have a look at the British Stammering Association website for guidance - share with all your child's caregivers.
