Your baby will learn to talk during his first two years of life. Long before he utters his first word, he's learning the rules of language and how adults use it to communicate.
He'll begin by using his tongue, lips, palate, and any emerging teeth to make sounds ("ooh"s and "ahh"s in the first month or two, babbling shortly thereafter). Soon those sounds will become real words ("mama" and "dada" may slip out and bring tears to your eyes as early as 4 to 5 months).
From then on, your baby will pick up more words from you and everyone else around him. And sometime between 18 months and 2 years, he'll begin to form two- to three-word sentences. As your baby makes mental, emotional, and behavioral leaps, he'll increasinly be able to use words to describe what he sees, hears, feels, thinks, and wants.
they should start talking before then. my niece is 11 months old and is already saying those stuff
Talk to your pediatrician. At 17 mos. your son is doing okay. But usually boys speak a lot later than girls.
When they're ready of course!!
