Tiny Talker

Help your baby's first words

Life with a baby is filled with firsts. So, you’re bound to be wondering, when will I hear my baby’s first words?

Talking is easy for grown-ups. And sometimes the words come out too freely! But for your baby, it’s a whole new skill (and language) to learn!

Here’s everything you need to know about when your baby will speak. Plus, some tips and tricks to get your tiny talker started.

Conversation starters

There are lots of ways to encourage your tot to start talking:

Reading

Choose stories with colourful pictures and repetition to help your baby get the feel of words.

Music

Babies love nursery rhymes. Sing songs like ‘Heads, Shoulders, Knees and Toes” with a favourite toy.

Play

Turn playtime into chat time. Toys like dolls and playsets let babies make up their own stories.

Bilingual Babies

Want to raise a bilingual baby? Introduce a second language right away! Before the age of 6 months, your baby can recognise sounds from all the world’s languages. But they start to lose this skill by their first birthday. Toys with bilingual songs and phrases are a great way to get started. Two languages are better than one!

When it comes to talking, your baby will soon find their voice. And even if they say the dog’s name before yours, don’t worry! Before you know it, they’ll be asking questions constantly.

Like “Why is water wet?” and “Why is it Tuesday?” Get ready to know the answer to everything
