When does a baby start talking

A recent study has revealed that babies can babble as early as an hour or two after birth, which is not long after the world becomes rich with sounds. Until now, babies were thought to be late bloomers when it came to emerging language, but the report suggests that not only is talking likely to start earlier, but it’s likely to happen earlier in the first few days even into the first few weeks of life.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.

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.

Just when your baby will say those magical first words varies greatly from individual baby to individual baby. But if your baby misses any of the following milestones in speech development, talk to your pediatrician or family doctor about your concerns. (Source:www.webmd.com)

Start

When your baby starts "talking," she's flaunting her budding language skills. Sure, you don't have any idea what she's saying, but this gibberish will eventually lead to real words. Her chatter also gives you a peek into her cognitive development, as she memorizes and repeats sounds, takes time to think about what she wants to "say," and learns how to use verbal and nonverbal actions to express her wants and needs.Your baby's verbal skills will progress through stages as her vocal mechanism matures and she increasingly relates to her environment, Artemenko says.

When do babies start talking clearly and fluently? "Toward the end of your baby's first year, he'll babble in longer strings of varied short nonsense syllables, using the intonation and rhythm mimicking that of an adult," Artemenko says. This stage of jargon is a precursor to speaking first words, which usually happens right around your child's first birthday. Wondering what that magical first word might be? "Dada," "mama," "baby," "ball," "doggie," "book," and "hi" are some common ones, Dr. Paul says. (Source: www.parents.com)
