Is Your 8 - 14 Month Old Blowing Raspberries?
"Choo-Choo ... All Aboard!"
Have you found yourself saying these types of phrases a lot recently to your little one?
Imitation of sounds is a skill that typically develops between 8 and 14 months of age.
For many little ones, this will begin with imitating raspberries.
As they get better at controlling their mouth and voice, your little one will start producing more “speech-like” sounds, such as b, p, m, w, t, d, n, h, and a variety of vowels; a, e, i, o, u.
Animal noises are also fantastic for encouraging speech and those with duplicated syllables are the easiest.
