Communication Skills Of Babies Aged 11 Months?
Hello … My 11 month old baby hasn’t been able to say a word. Still limited to babling like tatata, mamama, bababa. Is this still normal? Thank you
Every baby experiences different growth and development. One aspect that needs to be considered in infant development is the aspect of speech ability. For babies aged 9-12 months, babies are generally able to say mama or dad or other calls that usually take care of him.
In addition, the baby is able to look when his name is called, understand some simple commands, use cues to express desires (for example pointing things, raising hands to ask to be carried), likes to imitate the words heard, and later after 12 months the baby has understood about 70 the word.
To ascertain whether the development of a good baby needs to be done direct examination and monitoring. While this time you can do stimulation for babies by often inviting babies to tell stories, teaching babies words accompanied by demonstrating the words, and give special reactions or congratulations to the baby when you have started speaking words.
You need to be vigilant if a 12-month-old baby does not look back when called by name, lacks facial expressions, or cannot point with his finger. If you experience this, the baby should be seen by a pediatrician directly so he can check the status of growth and development and can be given more optimal treatment and therapy.
Hope it helps you,
