Fiona has been babbling in a new way lately. She is repeating syllables over and over again. (example: mamama) Also, she is combining different syllables and sounds together in a string. (ex: mamawawababa) This is really great to see!
This type of babbling is called canonical babbling and usually starts at the age of 6 to 10 months of age. Since Fiona’s hearing age is 5 months then she is right on target for where we would want her to be. If you’d like to learn more about the types of babbling babies go through here is a good link.
Here is a video of Fiona babbling:
I’m not sure if you’ve ever seen this adorable video of two twins babbling back and forth together. If not, its a must see. 😉
