[6-12 months] This is such an important, interesting and exciting time for your baby’s language development. Your baby goes from feeling the day by ‘sensations’, to understanding their world by ‘words’ (be that verbally or gestures).
This is the time to REALLY watch your little one. When they pay attention to something, be it what you are doing, an object or another person/animal, you can help to teach them language with a few simple steps. My first vocab list – 6 months+ and My second vocab list – moving to 12 months will give you tips on how to make language learning simple and also the first words your baby is likely to learn.
The sooner a child has language, the sooner you can interact even more with them, entertain them more, negotiate with them and help them to learn more about their world.
