Date:4/3/2012

New York, NY Does your baby take an interest in other children? Does he enjoy playing peek-a-boo and hide-and-seek? Does he smile when he sees your face? Does he respond to his name when you call?

  • Offer your child a bite and then encourage her to give you a bite.
  • Put your child's cup on the table in sight but out of reach. Hold it up and ask if she wants it before giving it over. Wait for her to communicate in some way before giving her the cup.
