Learn how to support your 5-month-old baby's rapidly progressing language skills.

Communication and Social Development

Your baby's language skills start to advance rapidly as he may start making consonant sounds like "b," "n" and "m." Continue to talk to him so that he may mimic your sounds. Encourage interaction of all kinds. Arrange playdates or join a social group to expose your baby to other children. Let them look at each other, smile, make sounds and reach out to touch.

Why is Nutrition Important?

Early nutrition is closely linked to language development. DHA (an Omega-3 fat found in breast milk and DHA-enriched infant formula) supports increased cognitive ability by facilitating brain growth and development.
