I don't think so, as long as she is learning some new words. DD vocabulary blew up on her second birthday, she would not be quiet after that, she is constantly talking.

I don't even think DD said "momma" at 1. She followed direction and babbled but no words until 18 months on the dot. And she just exploded with words from there.

When DD was one she could say momma, dada, ball, uh oh, and baby.

Now she's 21 months old and can probably say about 80 words. I wouldn't be worried, every baby is different! One is definitely too young to worry :)

My fourteen month old says dada bye bye mom keekee for kitty ba for bite and woo for hello. Thats it. Most of her communication is through pointing or crying.

My daughter is 1 in two weeks time. She's saying mama, dada, baba, bye bye, all gone and ah ah. Think she's trying to say bobba now lol that's what it sounds like when she sees her bottle. But other than that she's a lazy baby she won't crawl or even try to pull herself up. They're all so different lol. She babbles like crazy she'll be a talker like me lol but i won't be surprised if its a few months yet before she tries to walk.

yeah they are deff all so different. I just feel like my oldest was pretty much forming sentences by now... but my memory must be off haha.

Good to know there's nothing to worry about!

Mama, no-no, yay, yes, booboob, nana, her own version of thank you (sounds like ank uuu) and her own version of gentle (sounds like ennle). I know the last 2 don't count though

know this post is older, but I wanted to post because speech REALLY does vary.
My first actually only had about maybe 2-4 words at 12 months, then ONLY had about 10-15 by age 2... now at 5 he has a HUGE vocab and never, every shuts up. am not kidding either, some days my husband and I actually get to the point where we have to just close a door and be away from him for a few minutes so we can hear ourselves think. Also, although he was a slower talker, he understood more complex use of words and sentences and used/uses proper grammar compared to other children his age.

Second son, had about 13 words by 12 months and was saying full sentences by 19 months, but is actually more quiet than his older brother who blabs non-stop but was a more quiet baby/toddler. He is 4 now and is still more quiet, but has better pronunciation than his older brother.

My twins just made 1, a boy and a girl. My boy has about 18 words, my girl has about 5 words. We can already see our boy is going to be an amazing talker, he has clear as day said "good night" several times in a row. He did not add the word to his regular vocabulary, but was able to repeat it to us clear as day several times in a row at bed time the other night. None of the others were putting together 2 words until about 16 months at the earliest. Our son will point at objects and say "that", then when you say the object name he will attempt to copy it, and sometimes add it to his regular vocabulary. Our daughter had 5 regular words so far, and does not attempt to copy the way our son does, but she sure does chatter a lot.
