Educational Tips for Your Baby

It’s never too early to get your baby interested in language. At 8 months she will particularly enjoy looking at colourful picture books, listening to nursery rhymes, songs and stories, even if she doesn’t understand them fully.

That is why it is important to look at books together, name the animals and objects and repeat the names. As she gets to recognise the words easily, play another game which baby enjoys immensely.

Look at a picture of the cat that you’ve often named for her, and say: “Is this a dog?, No silly mommy, it’s a CAT! “Is this a tree? No, it’s a… CAR!” When she starts to use words herself, she will love playing this game and correct your errors!

Baby Song Videos are a great way to get your baby in preparation for talking. Much like the musician who tunes his instrument before a concert, your baby uses babbling to attune his vocal apparatus in preparation for speaking. So why not help tune your baby’s vocals by singing along with her to a baby song video.
