How to Talk to Your Baby
In the First Several Months.....
Hold your baby close. His eyes can focus on objects about eight inches from his face - the distance between your face and his face when holding him in your arms.
Talk softly, whisper, talk normally. Sing him lullabies. Say ohh and ahh to him.
Tell him what you see. Talk about his pretty little face, his tiny hands and toes.
Tell him where he is. Talk about him nursing or about him drinking from his bottle.
Repeat the little noises that he makes with his throat and mouth. Let him watch and listen as you play with your own voice.
Talk to him about the things you're doing.
