Even though your newborn can’t talk yet, her language skills are rapidly developing. See what language milestones to look for at this age.
Talking, reading, and listening – these are all essential parts of your baby's language development. As your newborn grows, watch for these early language milestones:
Reacting to loud sounds
Calming down or smiling when spoken to
Recognizing your voice and calming down if crying
Starting or stopping sucking in response to sound during feeding
Cooing and making pleasure sounds
Showing a special way of crying for different needs
Smiling when he sees you
