How to Talk to Your Baby

At 2 Years Old


When your baby has about 30 to 50 words in his vocabulary he will begin to put two words together.

Dad with boy and dog, talking; language development at Canto Speech Therapy Online

These two words will be the words he already has in his repertoire. He may have daddy, mommy, bye-bye, car, doggie, cookie and ball.

He may combine daddy doggie which can mean Daddy is with the dog, or Daddy goes to the dog, or the dog runs to Daddy.

Consider the context in which it was said, try to interpret what he's said and tell him: Daddy doggie. Daddy is holding the doggie.
