DS is almost 21 months. Recently he started saying "hurt" frequently. At first I thought it could be the bad diaper rash he had, but then it went away and he started saying it more. We stayed overnight in the hospital a few weeks ago for observation during a respiratory infection & there was a 2 year old recovering from surgery to remove her appendix. Her parents were so glad that they brought her to the ER when she complained of pain. DS can't tell me where yet. He just repeats whatever I say or point at.
I don't know if he's just repeating a word, or maybe teething his 2nd year molars already, or maybe something else. He saw his pediatrician a week after our hospital stay and everything was ok.
I don't *really* think anything major is wrong, but I have a tendency to make light of things & am scared of being wrong.
Do toddlers do this? Could it be teething? Are there any signs I should look for? Otherwise I don't think he's acting very unusual. A lot more "no" and "I dont wannit" but that's age appropriate I think?
