Talk and sing a lot with your baby. Imitate their sounds back to them. Narrate what you are doing. Describe what you see when you are out for a walk. Name and identify everyday objects.
• Let your baby examine toys and safe household objects. Introduce things one at a time and let them look and touch at their own pace.
• Create a safe area for them to explore. Use items like baby gates and natural, soft barriers to set up a zone for them to move around. Ensure only safe items are present.
• Let your baby copy your actions and gestures. As you do something, let them try to do the same as you (if safe and possible). Babies learn much by imitation.
