|I'm a speech and language therapist (UK term for a speech-language pathologist), and the research does suggest that children learning more than one language may be slower to develop language initially|
I asked my pediatrician about that and she said in her experience, she had never met a bilingual child who wouldn't have what would be considered a language delay in a monolingual child. She said that she doesn't put a lot of stock in research to the contrary and that the jury is still out on the issue. I find so much conflicting information about it, I tend to agree with her.

I survived 16 mos! Ask me about breastfeeding a baby with posterior tongue tie, high palate, and weak oral motor skills- whew!
