So put aside you self-consciousness and just chat with your baby like you really know what they’re saying…even if you don’t (and you probably don’t). You can chat with him/her pretty much like anyone else. They will feel like they are really communicating.
For these children, by 15 months of age, they had more words and gestures compared to the other babies.
Once again this reiterates the importance of parent-child interactions at the most in-depth level. All that babbling your infant does really is the beginning stages of learning to speak. By responding to your child as if you know what they are saying is just one step along path of them learning language.
