You have probably already noticed that your baby understands much more than what might appear. Although your baby does not yet know how to talk, he communicates with you through his smile, expressions, sounds, cries, gazes and gestures, with an average of 200 different alternatives. But now it's time to talk to your baby!
Babies react to sounds. They can be frightened by loud noises and relax when they hear their parents' voices, especially when spoken to lovingly and sweetly. Although your baby does not yet speak, you must motivate him, whisper to him, tell stories or sing songs in order to teach him how to communicate and learn how to convey and express emotions and feelings.
Hold him close, look at his little face, and speak to him in a pleasant tone. Pause to let him babble and make sounds. This means that he hears you and wants to reply. Although your baby is unable to understand or see you clearly, your words and smiles will make him feel comfortable, calm, and above all, happy.
