Mealtime Melodies

Baby Mealtime

As you feed your child, sing softly and watch how they respond. If they like it, smile and sing even more. If they make some sounds when responding to you, add their sounds to your song so you can make “Mealtime Melodies” together.

See what your child is learning

When you sing with your child and respond to their reactions, they’re learning about sounds and words. Learning new sounds and words will help them learn to talk and read in the future.
