Your baby is always listening. Are you talking? 85% of your baby's brain has developed by the time she's three years old. Little brains need lots of loving words as much as they need healthy food to grow and thrive. Just by talking, reading, singing, and playing with your baby, you help develop her brain!
Your baby can hear you as early as the third trimester of pregnancy! It's never too early to start talking with your baby. TALK WITH ME BABY™ can give you ideas for tips for talking with your baby.
There are important milestones that help you know if your baby is on track in their brain development. TALK WITH ME BABY™ can tell you what to look for at each stage: from prenatal to your baby's first birthday.
The team behind Talk With Me Baby™ is a collaboration of six leadership organizations, all working to bring the concept of language nutrition into public awareness and educate caregivers on the importance of talking with their baby every day. Talk With Me Baby™ is transforming parents and caregivers into conversational partners with their infants to provide the early language exposure that will support critical brain development for a successful and healthy life.
