Categories: Baby Play

Summary: Your baby begins to recognise sounds very early in their development, it’s how they start the process of learning to talk.


Include your baby in your conversations or simply talk to your child as you go about your daily activities. Give them some time to respond and then try to react to their babble or laugh as much as possible. It will help your baby learn about the rules of conversation.

Tip: Try to use different tones and voices when describing things. Your baby will easily pay attention and identify the different tonalities in your speech.

Read to your child as much as you can because it’s never too early to introduce your child to books. They will learn early on that reading is an enjoyable and safe activity.

Start with nursery rhymes, they can be a great method to introduce your baby to different language patterns, sounds and associated actions. Maybe start with these two fun nursery rhymes at first: Round and Round the Garden and This Little Piggy.

Tip: Simple actions can be demonstrated on your baby's toes or hands. You will surely get a few giggles.
