- Talk to baby in a high-pitched, singsong voice. Frequent face to face conversations with babies encourages two way conversations, attention to the conversation, babbling, coo and taking turns in conversations. Respond back to your baby with a similar sound in a similar voice.
- Describe your daily routines and actions to your baby. What will you have for breakfast? Where are you going and why? What are you doing today? Describe your actions as you dress, feed, and bathe your child.
- Babies notice a tone of voice or facial expressions when you talk. Use different emotion faces or voices to see if baby will repeat or notice the difference.
