  • Babbling – making strings of sounds using a combination of vowels and consonants for example “dadada” “bababa"

  • Still communicating their feelings/needs using different cries

  • Respond by making noises when spoken to

  • Smile at familiar faces

6 Months

Your role as communication partner:

  • Be Interested – by listening and responding to babble, the baby begins to realise that what they are saying to you is important

  • Repetition – play repetitive games, sing repetitive songs, read repetitive books.  This provides the opportunity for baby to learn what happens next

  • Wait – watch baby to see if they are indicating an interest in something and wait to see if baby will gesture or babble…then respond.
