At her 3 year check up she wasn't talking very well but they said her motor skills have always been advanced. She doesn't talk so well anymore and sometimes refuses the potty. I hope there's nothing wrong. We'll have to see. I could take her to speech therapy. She regressed a lot when I had Isabelle because she's so jealous. I am trying to spend more time with her and work on her speech. She likes to act like a baby and she started to talk like she did when she was one when Isabelle was born.... Any suggestions on how I can get her to talk better?

It doesnt sound like she is delayed to me, although that is just my opinion. It's quite normal for children to regress when they get a younger sibling.
I'd try for you and or dh to get as much one on one time as possible with her, maybe even hire a teenager as a specila friend to come once or twice a week just to play with her.
Also if you can reading stories while breastfeeding allows you to be more focused on teh older child alot. Lots of good stories focusing on what older siblings can do would probabley be a good idea,a s well as some good repetitive sories with plenty of rhythym and rhyme, relating to whatever she likes.
But this is one of those things that I do think time will wonders for.
All the best.

This might sound crazy but try teaching her songs and singing them all day long. IT will help her with new words and because it is in a song, she is more likely to say the word correctly.

Once my oldest had a stutter and i took her to a speech therapist and she asked if it happened while singing. It didnt. She told me that children singing is some of the best therapy that there is.

Julie turned 3 in March and a lot of her words sound slurred from time to time. I wouldn't get too upset... they change SO MUCH in the first 5 years!!!

I would call early intervention if you think there is a speech delayed. I can not say wether or not she is but its best to to catch it early.

Most early intervention programs and evals are free. I'd get another opinion and some really solid professional ideas on things that you can do to help her along. The extra time is definitely an awesome idea. My almost 3 year old LOVES repition at this time, lots of the same story over and over, I pause alot and let her finish the sentences in stories,it encourages speech and they get SOOO proud of themselves. 3 is a huge year for cognitive leaps, don't be surprised if in a weeks time she's coming up AHEAD of the "standard".
