Baby talk is just the beginning.

Young children will start to say fragments of words when they learn to talk. You can stretch them into full sentences and help that little brain soak in even more words.

That's one piece of advice from Dr. Dana Suskind’s book, “Thirty Million Words: Building a Child’s Brain.”

Have a listen, here

Research that Suskind and her team at the University of Chicago have done supports research that indicates that the more words a young child hears, the stronger the connections in that child’s brain will be.

Reader notes

Reader Alyssa Winter shared these baby care tips for moms looking for bathing, skin care, feeding tips and more from a natural perspective. Read more here.

Children who hear fewer words before age 3 face challenges in developing language and reading skills they will need to succeed in school.

So how do you start? The advice all boils down to this: Talk to your child. All the time. Every day.
