I have a nephew that will be 2 in October and is not talking. I mean no "mama" or "dada"...NOTHING. I am very worried, and I am trying to get my sister-in-law to see a doctor but she keeps putting it off. Everyone tells her he will talk "in time". His way of communicating is pointing and saying UH-UH. He understands simple questions and directions, so I know he can hear very well. Am I being too paranoid? I have three kids of my own (10, 6, & 6 mos.)and they all talked at different times (of course), but I think this is a little too long.
