Babies Babble At 6 Months?
Hello, my doctor is already 6 months old. Yesterday, he was still 5 to 5 months old, still actively babbling, but when he stepped 6 months, he was as often asleep and rarely babbled. Is the development still normal? How to stimulate it
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Most babies at 6 months have been able to chatter by combining consonants and vowels, such as ba, ma, or ah. At this age too, most babies have been able to show interest in something, appear happy when interacting with loved ones, and sad when abandoned.
However, even infants who appear to be chattering at 6 months do not necessarily indicate an abnormality. Of course, the ability to speak and interact with infants may vary not only depending on age, but also the stimulation provided, physical condition, and many other factors. Even babies who fall asleep, as long as they still look active, suckle as usual, and don't show signs of severe illness, often don't need to worry. Sleep is actually good for supporting growth and development to be more optimal.
It's best if you keep your baby interacting, talk to him often, read him well, and make funny expressions so he learns more. Also invite your baby to interact with many people who love him. Give him enough milk and start also teach him to consume healthy MPASI according to his age. Avoid giving the gadget too early in the baby. Avoid comparing your baby's growth and development with other babies. Better, you monitor your baby's growth and development to the nearest health facility.
If at the age of 9 months your baby still seems to rarely talk, weak, less active, or hampered by other growth and development indicators, do not hesitate to check it directly to the doctor or pediatrician, right? Concerned, there are special health problems, such as autism, hearing loss, infection, dehydration, anemia, or other illnesses that they suffer, which require further management.
Hope this helps ...
