Warmest congratulations on the birth of your sweet baby girl Nur Kayla Zafirah! to Nur Ellyza Binti Abd Rahman and husband.
Before babies learn to talk in a real language — English, say, or Spanish — they babble and coo, playing with sound. That’s baby talk, and baby talk sounds similar the world over.
But when will you hear your baby’s first words? Critical milestones for a baby learning to talk happen in the first three years of life, when a baby’s brain is rapidly developing. During that time, your baby’s speech development depends on your “baby talk” skills as well as your baby’s.
When do babies talk properly? The first “baby talk” is nonverbal and happens soon after birth. Your baby grimaces, cries, and squirms to express a range of emotions and physical needs, from fear and hunger to frustration and sensory overload. Good parents learn to listen and interpret their baby’s different cries.
