After changing your child’s diaper, roll their body from side to side on the changing surface. Stop and ask them, “Do you want more?” See how they respond. You can nod your head, saying, “You said yes, you want more” or you can shake your head, saying, “You said no, you’re all done.”
See what your child is learning
This everyday moment is a great opportunity to help your child practice their communication skills as they listen and respond to you. They’re also learning important words and gestures from you they will use when they start to talk.
