From gurgling to the first few words: early language

Between 15 and 18 months: a thirst for learning

  • Delighted by his new ability to talk your baby has a thirst for learning new words: he points to objects in his surroundings to ask their name. Respond to his questions and remember to name things you talk to him about to help him increase his vocabulary.
     
  • At 18 months he can master between 10 and 20 words that he begins to combine with one another: for example, "more milk" or "daddy gone". If he pronounces badly do not systematically correct him: you risk spoiling his wonderful enthusiasm and his spontaneity. But rather, say another phrase after his in which you pronounce the problem word correctly.
