Have your baby learn first words with a real teacher, Ms Rachel! In this video, Ms Rachel will go over about 50 first words. She will also sing fun nursery rhymes and songs for babies to delight your little one!
Ms Rachel includes sign language for many of the words as well. She also encourages gestures, which help speech development.
Remember, the best way for a baby to learn language is interacting with their caregiver. Here are some tips for helping your baby’s language and brain development:
Narrate your day like a sportscaster – “I’m changing your diaper – wipe, wipe – all clean!”
Read to your baby every day
Play on the floor with your baby. The best toy for your baby is you!
Babble with your baby, imitate their sounds
Talk to your baby
Help your baby experience and explore new environments such as outside, on a walk, story time at the library, safe spaces in your home
Repeat words and speak slowly
Speak with enthusiasm in a high sing-songy tone (parentese)
Sing songs with your baby and sing songs with gestures like “The Wheels on the Bus”
Soothe your baby when they are upset, pick them up when they cry
Give appropriate, safe toys to explore
Give your child lots of love and affection
If your child is not meeting milestones, let your pediatrician know and contact early intervention for your state. If you qualify for early intervention, you can get therapies such as speech therapy and physical therapy. The sooner you get help, the better!
