The Latest Baby News
What better place to keep track of Baby News than here at The-Baby-Scrapbook-Place. I decided to create a sort-of blog about articles on baby information.
I read this article today Talking to your baby can build language skills By Val Willingham
Here is an excerpt from the article:
"The study investigators suspect that human speech, directed to infants actually helps them to become more aware of their surroundings and makes it easier for them to recognize and categorize objects that are brought to their attention. And while babies continue to grow and learn words, talking to them and identifying objects will help them distinguish individual words and their meanings, which makes it easier for children to learn to talk and eventually communicate."
This article really hit home to me. It is about the importance of talking to your infant child.
I tend to be a quiet person. I don't just talk to talk - like my sister does. My sister talks constantly and guess what... her children started talking at a really early age.
When my youngest child was born, I decided I was going to try to talk to him a lot more often than I talked to my other children when they were babies.
I talked to him all the time, or what seemed like all the time to me. I would have a great (one sided) conversation with him the entire time we were shopping in the grocery store.
I'd ask him questions throughout the day... of course he couldn't answer them. And at night, we would discuss how the day went. It actually became very easy for me (the non-talker) to do.
Guess what happened... He started talking VERY early. He was speaking in complete sentences by 1 1/2. I'm not just talking about little sentences. He was saying long sentences using adjectives.
So..... What's Your Experience with Talking to Your Baby
