Babies respond best to parents who make eye contact with them. Always get your baby’s attention before talking to them or playing games. Your baby needs your help so he can begin to develop a love of language. When you make eye contact and talk to him about his world, you are teaching him new words. It is a crucial way to develop language and bond at the same time.
Sit in a comfy chair with baby swaddled in your arms. Speak his name and get his attention. He won’t understand the words but he does know your voice. Keep the eye contact- talk to him, coo and sing. Talk about things in his world. Tell baby a story using your animated voice. Keep his attention by smiling, telling him how important he is, and how much he is loved.
