I'm concerned that at 10 months Austin isn't babbling more than he is. When he turned 8 months he was saying "ma ma" every 2 seconds. Now, you can't get him to say it for the life of you. All he says now is "un un" and shakes his head at the same time. He bascially just grunts and whines at this point. Is it to early to be looking for this or should I bring it up to his Dr.?

My 8 month old is hit or miss as far as babbling. At 6 months he started talking up a storm. Then he just stopped about a month later. Friend of mine asked if he sang da da da to the tune of beetoven's 5th anymore and I said no -- next day he babbled nonstop. Think they're just showing us our their personalities -- that they'll do what they want -- a battle of the wills so to speak.
I agree that they often go through these phases. Many babies don't really say anything meaningful (consistantly) until they are a year old or older. It still wouldn't hurt to mention it to his ped though. He could possibly have developed some fluid in his ears and that could also be the reason for the head shaking.
this is absolutely normal! they start saying things and then just stop-I have 2 boys and they both did this-it's normal-but if you are really worrying just call the doctor and I'm sure they will tell you the same thing-god bless you and your family-the slayer
