Why is it important to share experiences with your child?

Have you ever wondered how your baby will learn to speak, play and interact with others? They start as infants by sharing experiences with their parents. This is known as joint attention and it is an essential building block for learning language.

What Age Are Babies When They Start To Demonstrate Joint Attention?

Have you noticed your baby taking turns exchanging looks, noises and mouth movements? That is one of the early signs of joint attention, which can emerge in babies as early as 2 months old.

By the time they are 18 months old, joint attention will be well established.

This video will show you how babies engage and share experiences with their parents.

What are some ways that your baby tries to get your attention? Please share in the comments.
