Feeding Memories

Baby Toddler Mealtime

When feeding your child, use that time to tell them a story. You can make one up or share something that happened when you were a child. When they respond to your voice and make a sound, repeat the same sound back to them.

See what your child is learning

Your voice is your child’s favorite sound. Even though they can’t say words yet, they’re listening and learning that sounds go together in words. This is an important foundation for language later on.
