- Talk about everything. Describe your actions, where you are going and what you are doing. It builds vocabulary, oral language and conversation skills.
- Have a back and forth conversation with your baby even though they may not talk back. Ask questions, make observations and give the baby frequent face-to-face time. This helps build conversation skills as well as bonding time with an adult.
- Show pictures of family and friends and talk about them. "Oh look, here’s a picture of grandpa, he lives in Arizona. He’s coming to visit soon."
