Post stuttering in 2 yr old

My 2 1/2 yr ols daughter just started to stutter when she talks, it is only when she is saying sentences. She will pause in the middle of her sentence and say s s s s or t t t t and then continue with her sentence. This is scaring me! Is this normal? Should I be concerned? Has anyone else dealt with this? I did a search on this message board and didn't come up with anything! Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!!

I have a 7 year old that has been stuttering since she began to speak. Her pediatrician says that she's not abnormal in any way and that she should see a speech therapist (which she does through her elementary school every Thursday). I've heard that stuttering was also heriditary - I used to stutter really bad when I was a child. I remember asking my mother for a glass of water and her refusing to give it to me until I said it correctly. I still stutter slightly now at 25 years old (when I'm upset or excited). Take your daughter to a speech therapist and see what the diagnosis is. Also, when she starts elementary school, be sure to tell them that she has a slight stuttering problem so that she can see a speech teacher to help her with this. Whatever you do, DO NOT make fun of her, don't stand for it if you hear someone else make fun of her and DO help her with her speech if you see she needs it - tell her to stop, think about what she wants to say and say it slowly. That seems to help with my daughter.
