Get snap happy!

Looking at photos of people your baby knows gets them ready to start chatting.

Get lots of photos of people your baby knows, like friends and family members. You can get photos of pets too.

You can show them printed photos, or photos on a phone or tablet.

Sit together and look at the photos. Point to people's faces and say their name. It's too soon for your baby to say them too, but listening to you will get them interested. Listening to you talk helps them build language skills.

If your baby points or makes noises, encourage them by agreeing, smiling and repeating yourself.

Good to know

Saying names often will help your baby be interested in people.
