The Development of Your Baby’s Language


Although your baby can not talk to you at the earlier months of his life, he is developing his language, especially speaking language.  At the first 6 months of his life, your baby will start making sounds in his throat.

Sometimes, your baby makes different sounds or cries due to his need; i.e. hungry, dirty diaper or he just likes you to play with.  This is the first step that you can observe on the way your baby tries to communicate with you so that you can serve exactly what he wants.

Apart from speaking to your baby directly, touching or eyes-contact to your baby will also make better communication between you and your baby as well.

When your baby is nearly 4 months, he would start making more sounds through his lips; but the sound is unclear.  Meanwhile, he will gradually make more sounds.  Some sounds would be pronounced repeatedly; i.e. the sounds may like “papa”, “mama”, up to your imagination.  (you may think that your baby tries to say “papa” or “mama”)  That’s why most parents gradually teach their babies to pronounce the two words “papa” and “mama” prior to other words.

Most babies naturally like to hear high voice, which is similar to woman’s or their moms’ voice, than low voice.  It can be seen that most people talk to babies with high voice and speak in language like babies as to draw the attention of babies.

In addition, the high and low voice as well as different sounds will help your baby learn about the meaning of communication with different emotion.

After the age of 6 months, while talking to your baby, you should reduce your language like babies and speak with adult language instead.  This will much help your baby gradually develop his language in the future as well.
