How can you help baby develop 7-9 month communication skills?
At this age, you will see baby producing various sounds and recognizing their name. Use these tips to help develop baby’s skills:
1. Model new sound combinations, e.g. da da da
2. Cover a toy with a blanket and have baby “find” it
3. Sing songs with finger/hand gestures, e.g. itsy bitsy spider
Did you know baby is now copying gestures? So, try introducing baby sign language.
Help baby develop communication skills!
