Infant, literally, translates to "unable to talk." Learning to walk and becoming a toddler doesn't automatically graduate a baby out of infancy, since some babies don't start talking even though they may be cruising around the coffee table. Can a child who starts talking late be normal, have a regular life, and go to the same schools as other kids? Parents of a child with delayed speech may sometimes find the need for extra resources concerning information about this issue. These links offer parents knowledge on possible causes of late talking, as well as resources and support. By passing on this information you may help a parent gain comfort and insight into dealing with late talking. Here's a link to Contemporary Pediatrics' http://www.contemporarypediatrics.com/radio_peds4 on this important issue.
