    yesterday Quin went to the doctors and they asked if he can understand simple commands like "go get your cup" but Quin doesn't is this normal?
    he understands no, and little things.

    I don't have any experience with a one year old lol, but all babies develop at different stages, I wouldn't worry about it, just keep an eye on his development and make sure he is learning new things and is communicating and responding happily, I'm sure everything will turn out fine xxx

    No way. Issy understands 'no', 'bye' and 'hi' but definitely wouldn't understand if I asked her to get something...

    No I wouldn't expect it just yet either, it'll be a good few months yet, don't worry! x

    Noahs almost 11 months and I'm not even sure if he understands no... Sometimes he moves away from whatever it is, but it might just be coincidence because sometimes he carries on. Although when he goes to something hes not allowed he sometimes turns to look at me like he knows i'm going to say no? But i dont think he understands.

    Definitely wouldnt understand a command like that! I wouldnt worry :hugs:

    I think Quin sounds fine! At 12 months many babies can't even walk so how could they go get a cup, etc.

    They didn't ask me about following simple instructions (like go get your cup) until her 18 month appointment when they had a little development quiz thing at the end to assess whether or not they wanted to see you again or if you were good to wait until 4-6 years (unless she's ill).

    I agree with everyone else, i wouldnt worry.
    Kent understand no (even tho he hardly listens) and understands things like go to daddy or mummy but thats because he knows who we are etc. I dont think he would understand cup or anything like that untill a little later..

    Did your DR seem suprised when you answered the question? Coz i agree with everyone else, i would think its more of an 18 month thing. Just curious how your DR reacted.

    At that age Jaymee didnt even WALK , she understood some commands , but not something like that.
    Jaymee just had her 18 month apt , and I was asked those questions for her.
    So dont worry about it to much. im sure hes right on track

    Liam doesn't understand no. Well he kind of does. He'll crawl to something he shouldn't have, look at me to check I'm watching, and when I tell him "no" he laughs at me. I'm dreading his teen years! lol.

    No, Lily only understands basic things but if you as what does the doggy do she goes woof woof and what does the sheep do she goes baa baa.
    She doesnt even understand no, when i tell her not to do something she ignores me!

    I asked if this was something to be worried about, and hes like "its not too unusual for them to not understand that yet"

    Thats what Noah does, I don't know if he fully understands though :shrug:

    It was proberly just a random question he asked to just ask.. im sure you will hear it again at the 18month stage when its normally asked :)
    Plus like everyone else said, everyone develops at their own stage. I wouldnt worry.
