As you dress your child, copy the sounds you hear him/her make, like “ah, eee, ooo, bee, dee.” How does your child respond? As you make a sound, place your child’s fingers on your lips so he/she can feel the vibrations and movements of your lips. Try different sounds as you do!
Touching and listening to sounds fosters your child’s interest in listening and communicating. It’s never too early to begin playing back and forth with sounds. It won’t be long before you are having back and forth conversations with real words.
