Right from birth, every time you talk, sing or play with your baby, you’re not just bonding, you’re building their brain. Our babies need us to talk to them, the more words they hear the better talkers they become. Talking to you baby, or copying what they babble, is an easy way to build their brain throughout the day. Even talking about simple actions as you do them is a great place to start.
Conversations with your baby might feel one-sided to begin with. But even though your young baby doesn’t have words yet, they will still try to join the conversation! They communicate with you through crying, eye contact and listening and later on, they will coo, smile, laugh, make more sounds and move their body to communicate with you.
