How To Support Your Child

There are lots of things you can do to encourage your child at this stage:

  • Copy sounds your baby makes. This will encourage more noises and is the start of conversations.
  • Hold your baby near your face when you talk to them so that they can see you clearly.
  • Talk to your baby about what you are doing. This will help them to start to learn words.
  • Talk in a sing-song voice to your baby. This will keep them interested in what you are saying.
  • Have some special time with your child each day to play with toys and picture books.
