A common growth and development milestone many new parents and caregivers ask about is baby’s communication. Many turn to the web to find out what to expect as baby grows. Knowing where to get reliable information is key to learning how to support baby’s development.
Communication starts from birth, with crying and eye contact, then simple sounds and gestures.
Toronto Public Health (TPH) has launched a free* texting service for parents and caregivers with a baby between the ages of birth to six months.
We’re making it easier for you to get information and tips on communicating with your baby to help support their early language development skills.
