Tips on How to Conceive a Baby Boy
Baby communication is all about using simple signs that babies are trying to use for communication before they have mastered the details of speech. Before babies learn to talk, they will coo and babble, just like playing with sound. Long before they learn to speak, babies get sold on communication. The more you listen and respond to your baby, the better he will become at communicating with you. That is baby talk and it is important for you to know the baby talk milestones to assist your baby in speech development.
The first “baby talk” is non-verbal and it happens after birth. Your baby’s cries, grimaces, and smiles are ways of the babies to communicate their range of emotions and physical needs to their caregiver. Skilful parents know how to listen and interpret their baby’s signals.
At the age around 4 to 6 months your baby starts to make baby sounds “babbling”. Before babies talk, they practise the intonations, sounds and rhythms of language. It is a fact that through interactions with parents and other people surrounding him, babies mirror and learn early language skills.
At this age, babies can understand a few basic words like “bye” and “no”. This is also the time where they begin to use a wider range of consonant sounds and tones of voice.
By around 1 year and a half, a baby will usually speak actual words. It usually starts with simple words that they have heard often, such as “mumma” or “dadda”. These words will progress into two-phrases, which is the next steep of speech.
Two-word phrases such as “bye doggie” begin around 24 months of age. At this period, the baby should have around 50 words in his vocabulary. When the baby talks and links two words together, it shows an understanding of both words and content.
