Your Baby Is Likely To Imitate Playful Sounds Made By Family Members

Communication
Speech and Language
At around eight to ten months of age your baby is likely to imitate playful sounds made by family members. Your baby has now reached a stage when he will attempt to imitate adult sounds and also begin to create much longer sounds with more variations that are more like a conversational speech. 
 
What you need to know
 
He will try to copy your speech by putting consonants and vowels together such as bah-bah or da-da or ma-ma. Babies make different sound to seek attention and at the same time continue to learn new skills through imitation. Imitation is a big part of his learning process at this age. It is very important to listen and respond to your baby’s babble for the improvement of his speech and language development.
