Bathtime ABCs

Baby Bathtime

Is your child starting to babble? Use bathtime as an opportunity to babble about the letter B. If they say, “ba,” you can say, “Baby takes a bath with bubbles! Ba-ba-ba!” If they respond with more babbles, copy them right back! What other words can you make from their babbling sounds?

You’re helping your child develop communication skills when you respond to their sounds with sounds of your own, building on their babbling to create words. They’re also learning to engage in the back and forth conversations that are basic to relationships and learning.
