You progressed much, baby. Of a newborn who only communicated crying and did not understand anything beyond their basic needs, going to a baby of six months beginning to articulate sounds, understand words and express anger, frustration and happiness, even a baby eight months that was capable of transmitting messages by primitive sounds and gestures, and now a baby for ten months who spoke his first words.
Teaching your baby to talk
Here's how you can help in language development of your baby:
Label, label, label. Everything in the world your baby has a name - use it. Verbally label objects in the household baby, play of 'eyes, nose, mouth' point and other body parts. Point birds,
dogs, trees, lakes, flowers, cars, trucks and fire trucks to the floor. Do not let outsiders - point moms, dads, babies, women, men, girls, boys. For baby - use their name frequently to help develop a sense of identity.
Listen, listen, listen. What makes you say your baby is as important as what you say to him. Even if you have not yet identified any words, listen to your babbling and answer: 'Oh, how interesting' or 'Really?' When you ask a question, wait for an answer, even if it's just a smile, agitated body language or unintelligible babbling. Make a special effort to understand the words in speech incoherent baby;
many first words are so confusing that parents do not understand them. Try to associate the words unrecognizable baby to objects that they can represent; they can not sound even a little correct, but if the child uses the same 'word' for the same object consistently, that counts. When you have problems to translate what your baby is asking, point possible alternatives, giving you the chance to say if you guessed correctly.
There will be frustration on both sides until the order baby become smarter, but their continual attempts to act as an interpreter will help accelerate the development of language, as well as give the baby the satisfaction of being at least partially understood.
Focus on concepts. The baby still need to learn many things that you understand how basic. Here are just a few concepts. You can probably think of several others. Be sure to say the word for the concept and when you interpret your baby.
Explain the environment and the law of cause and effect. 'The sun shines, then have light.' 'The fridge gets cold food to be tasty and fresh', 'Mama uses a brush to brush his teeth and a medium brush to scrub the floor.' 'Turning the switch on the wall, the room has light. Hanging up, it gets dark. '
And so on. An expanded consciousness and understanding of their environment, as well as the perception of other people and their needs and feelings, is much more important for your baby to understand well the language and reading to learn to repeat a lot of meaningless words.
Realize colors. Begin to identify colors where appropriate. 'Look, that balloon is red, or that your shirt' or 'That truck is green. Your cart is green too. ' or 'Look at those, that beautiful yellow flowers.' Remember, however, that most children do not 'learn' colors until about three years old.
Contact one of two ways. Use adult sentences and then translate them to the simple baby speaks: 'Now we'll both walk. Dad, Paul, is bye-bye. ' 'Ah, you have just consumed. all '. Double-talk helps.
Do not talk like a baby. Use speech simplified adults instead of tatibitate will help your baby learn to speak properly fastest 'Julinha or bottle?' is better than 'Baby Tetê qué?' Forms as 'dog' or 'doll', however, can be used with young children - are of course more enjoyable.
Enter pronouns. Although your baby probably will not be using pronouns correctly for a year or more, the end of the first year is a good time to start developing a familiarity with the baby pronouns using them with names. 'Daddy will pick up food for Paulinho - I'll give you food.' 'This book is the mother - is my - and this book is the Tatiana - is yours.' This latest version also teaches the concept of ownership.
Encourage the baby to respond. Use any medium you can think of to make your baby respond in words or gestures. Present choices: 'Whether bread or biscuit?' or 'You wear pajamas Mickey or airplanes?' and then give the baby a chance to indicate the alternative you want, which you should then give a name. Ask questions: 'Tá tired?' "Want to eat? ' 'You go on the swing?
' A nod probably goes before a yes or no, but it is still an answer. Ask your baby to help her find things (even if they are not lost): '? Can find the ball' Give the baby long enough to show the object, and reward greeting. Even looking in the direction account - 'That's right. The ball's there! '
Never force. Encourage your baby to talk by saying 'Tell Mom what you want' when he use nonverbal communication to indicate a need. If the baby grunt or point again, offer a choice: for example, 'You bear or dog?' If you do not receive a verbal response, name the object, 'Oh, you want the dog', and delivered. Never forget to take something because your child can not ask for anything by name or because he or she pronounces the name incorrectly. Sooner or later, the verbal responses will be more than the non-verbal.
