As you feed your child, tell them what you see. “I see your fingers picking up a piece of food.” “I see your mouth chewing a banana”. “I see you drinking with your mouth” If they make a sound or say a word, repeat it to create a back and forth conversation. Babbling and talking are learning!
See what your child is learning
When you have a back and forth conversation with your child, even before they can talk, they’re listening to you and learning new words. They’re also learning to communicate with another person and how much fun it can be.
