Step1momandbaby_Thumb.jpg talking to your baby in real english Talk about the present.

Tell the baby what is going on like a narrator would tell a story. For example if you’re giving the baby a bath explain what your doing with the soap and shampoo and why. It’s okay that your baby will probably just have a blank stare but at least this will get you talking.

Step2

Ask your baby questions.

Sure your baby can’t answer yet but you can. Ask a question, pause as though the baby were going to respond and then say the answer yourself out loud.

Step3

Imitate what your baby does.

By imitating your baby’s coos and ahhs you are setting the stage for when your baby will be imitating your language.

I can’t carry a tune to save my life! Luckily my daughter doesn’t care. She loves when I sing anything, even grocery lists.

I like to read the newspaper, so I read that to my baby. reading out loud is particularly helpful when you just really have no idea what to talk about.

Some babies prefer high pitched voices. While others prefer lower pitches. Experiment to see which appeals to your baby. This can help increase their attentiveness to you.

If your bay becomes inattentive, cranky or fussy he or she is probably telling you they’ve had enough chatter for the time being.
