If you feel there's a problem, go to your GP or health visitor. He may just be extremely shy or it could be signs of something else.

My son doesn't talk a lot compared to his sister at his age, but he is picking words up quicker and quicker now, all children develop at their own pace. x

Gemma was just the same shes 11 now and shes still a bit quiet, but she came out of her shell at school and paygroup.

She was about 3 before shed give anyone eye contact and then it was usually a quick glance!

Im sure hell come out of his shell soon, but if you are worried speak to the HV and/or DR

If you have any concerns speak to your HV. He is still little yet and kids all develop at different rates.

Jamie is like that, until he has been around someone for a long time he will cry and scream until they leave our house. He is at the age where seperation anxiety often rears its head too.

I agree with all the others hun, it could be that he is just very shy? As for the not speaking a lot, he may have just concentrated on a different part of his development first hun. Maybe he walked quite early for example? However, you know your child best and if you have any concerns hun i would speak to your HV or GP. Try not to worry too much Xx
