Talking with your baby

language skills for babies

Babies love "conversations" where there is give and take, their response with gurgling and babbling. Talking with your baby will help them talk, trust and learn.
- The first language skill to develop is understanding what is heard.
- Babies have the need for social interactions and lots of talk from loving adults also builds healthy relationships and social skills: building trust, dealing with emotional and physical needs, and interacting with others in positive ways.
- Research has shown that children from talkative families may have heard 30 million more words by age 3 than children from less-talkative families and that the more words the children had heard by age 3, the better they did on tests of cognitive development.

Thanks for posting this, it's such an important concept and one that not all families hear. We're working on exposing our little one to both Mommy and Daddy's languages and hope that she developes both easily.
