Try to choose at least five times in your daily routine where you can chat to your baby. Your baby will like hearing your voice and seeing your facial expressions. It doesn’t matter what you chat about.
- Talk, listen, respond.
- Chat to your baby about what you’re doing.
- Pause and listen to their respond. Babbling, smiling, and looking at your face are all ways your baby will communicate with you.
- Make their sounds or expressions back to them. This is how babies learn about conversations and how to communicate with others.
