Your babies will experiment with all sorts of sounds. When they make a sound, repeat the sound they made and say a word that starts with that sound. For example, if a baby is saying "bah bah bah", say "bottle" or "ball" back to them.

What We're Learning:

  • social / emotional (smiling at people, looking at caregiver)
  • language / communication (turning head towards sounds, cooing, babbling, stringing vowels together, responding to own name, making sounds to show joy and displeasure)
  • cognitive (paying attention to faces)
