Papapa, dadada, gagaga, mamama…These noises, which have become more intense and frequent will take over your home. If you leave the room to go grab something in the kitchen, for example, while your child plays in the baby seat or the activity mat, you can be certain they will “call you” if you take too long. And you should respond, ok? During this phase, interaction is crucial for the child to feel accepted and respected. Another important kind of stimulus is repetition. Besides teaching your baby to imitate movements like saying goodbye, clapping and sending kisses, make sure they repeat some simple “frases”. With their intellect and reasoning working correctly, soon your child will be apt to respond to simple calls such as “come here” and “give it to mommy”.
