Respond to the sounds your baby makes, ask questions and narrate throughout your day. “Do you like ...?' I see you smiling" "Are you calling me?"



"Talk" to your baby by looking at them and speaking and imitating the sounds they make. Be expressive. 


While reading a book with your baby, hold it close enough for your them to touch it and point to it. Point to and talk about what you see.
