When feeding your baby, talk about what they’re doing and why you think they’re doing it. “You’re drinking your milk because you’re so hungry!” Talk about what will happen next. “After your tummy is full of milk, you’ll be sleepy and it will be time for your nap.”

Talking with your baby and labeling their sounds and actions helps them connect words to feelings, and builds vocabulary. When you talk about your baby’s daily routine, you help them feel safe throughout the day’s changes.
