Hi I’m new here and actually found this by googling my questions and felt better coming here and making an account for my questions.
My son is 11m old (10 months adjusted, born at 36 weeks).
He is a wild boy and determined to be ahead of the game despite being born with Gastroschisis, spending 2 months in the NICU and being preemie.
My concerns are that my boy was babbling a LOT between 6-9 months for the whole time always with the bububuh and dadada. Even sometimes but rarely “mamama”. Well, I wanna say ever since he’s learned to pull himself up, stand, and now full on WALK around like he does and has been doing for the last entire month almost months and a half…he doesn’t babble anymore. He ONLY blows raspberries. In fact, the only time he DOESNT is when his paci is in his mouth (which is rarely because he isn’t very attached to it…maybe 30 min a day) or when he’s whining or food or asleep. He doesn’t make the bububuh or dadada noises he used to ever. Maybe once in a blue moon for 5 seconds then goes straight back to babbling. I’m so sad and so worried because it’s been a full month going on longer that he has been only blowing raspberries…which he used to do BEFORE he ever babbled around 6 or 7 months old.
I feel as if this is a regression, but I’m not a professional and this is my first baby…I would just like some advice and guidance or reassurance that this is normal and a cause of his interest in mobility…or a phase he will grow out of…or to know since he’s 11m old now and I constantly talk and sing and play with him…if he needs speech therapy intervention because it could be a regression.
Thanks so much for reading and reaching out. I am stressing my sound out badly because ALL of my friends with babies 10-12m are babbling like crazy, yet here’s my Albert only blowing raspberries. Even my sister came over today and said “is that all he does???” Because when ALWAYS does it. Walking around, watching us play games, to respond to me talking to him etc. He laughs and gets irritated and shows clinginess and even learns his new toys with me…so everything else seems perfect…but I’m stressed about his verbal communication…and how it was excelling and seems to have now in the last month, regressed. If this is normal, please tell me.
