The noises that your baby is making at this stage are his attempts at speaking real words. Sometimes, the sounds give you a laugh! Well, let your baby know that you enjoyed his “joke” and that you want him to keep making more sounds, babbles and coos.
At this stage, you are getting your baby used to a series of routines. Reading about and talking about routines help to make them part of your baby’s life.
