- Watch. Your baby may reach both arms up to say she wants to be picked up, hand you a toy to say she wants to play, or push food off her plate to say she’s had enough.
- Hang in there.
- Let your child lead.

How do babies learn to talk?
Babies learn to speak by imitating the sounds they hear around them. So the more you talk to your baby, the faster he will acquire speech and language skills. Repeat simple words like “mama” and “bottle” often and clearly so your baby begins to hear familiar words and associate them with their meaning.19 Jul 2019
