Thanks for posting your query.

Sleep problem is actually very common for this age.

Keep talking to your child. He will pick up phrases. Please be patient. Do not impose yourself on the child. He will learn to talk naturally. If he does not speak by 4 years, you should show him to a speech therapist.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if you have any more concerns.

Please accept my answer in case you do not have further queries.

Wishing you good health.
