Trusted Answers provided by Canadian Paediatric Hospitals.</p><p>Most babies are born with a strong sense of hearing and enjoy human voices and music. Their communication will improve steadily over the first year of life, as they learn to indicate objects, make sounds and eventually speak their first words.</p><h2>Key points</h2> <ul><li>From the first month, babies enjoy listening to human voices and music, as well as experimenting with their voice.</li> <li>A baby's communication skills will continue to develop over the next 12 months as they learn to imitate sounds, gestures and eventually speak their first words.</li></ul><h2>Month one</h2><p>From their very first month of life, your baby will show determined interest in human voices, particularly those of their parents. They will also enjoy listening to music. Music is a great distraction if your baby is upset. Try playing a tune or singing to them, and they may stop crying altogether. </p><p>This month, your baby will start experimenting with their voice. their voice box is becoming more flexible, and it now allows them to make their vowel sounds such as "ah," "eh," and "uh." As they learn to make these sounds, they will find them amusing, and will practice them over and over again. </p><h2>Month two</h2><p>Your baby's hearing continues to improve this month. Now they can distinguish between sounds that have different pitches and intensities. </p><p>They are starting to become interested in people's conversations, and how people take turns listening and talking. They will make sounds for you and wait for you to respond. In fact, if your baby is crying, sometimes you can distract them by simply talking to them.</p><h2>Month three</h2><p>By now, your baby will turn their head toward a sound coming from nearby. For example, if the phone rings, they will turn in the direction of the ring. Their eyes will look in the same direction. </p><p>Your baby will continue to be fascinated by their voice. They will practice making sounds whenever they are happy and content. They will "talk" a great deal when you speak to them. They will enjoy imitating you and having you imitate them. </p><h2>Month four</h2><p>This month, your baby's hearing continues to improve. their ability to hear soft sounds is getting better.</p><p>Now that they have practiced their vowels, your baby will start in on the consonants. Some of the easier consonants to pronounce are m, k, g, p, and b. They might start to put some of these consonants together with vowels, to say "gaa" or "baa." </p><h2>Month five</h2><p>This month, your baby will make a magical sound: their first laugh.</p><p>Your baby is making continuous improvements in their understanding of language. The tone of a speaker's voice is becoming more important to them, and they will react accordingly. They are starting to recognize the patterns and rhythms of their own language.</p><h2>Months six to 10</h2><p>By six months, your baby may imitate sounds, and by seven months they may respond to their name. Around the eighth month, they will start to combine their syllables, to make words like "dada" and "baba." </p><p>He will continue to babble, but it might gradually start to sound like real speech. All this practice will help them learn how to say real words later on. They will begin to understand that there is a relationship between words and gestures. For example, they will start to realize that saying goodbye and waving goodbye mean the same thing. </p><p>By nine months, they may know the meaning of several words, including the names of members of their family.</p><p>Your baby has figured out what a male voice sounds like, and what a female voice sounds like. As a result, they may be quite surprised if they see a woman speaking with a male voice, or vice versa. </p><h2>Months 11 to 12</h2><p>At some point in these last two months, your baby is likely to say their first words. No doubt, when your baby reaches this milestone, it will be exciting for both you and your baby. As time goes on, you will be able to communicate with each other and hold a dialogue. </p><p>Toward the end of their first year, your baby may be able to say a few words, but they will probably understand up to 100 more. Your baby uses many "clues" to help them understand the meaning of words. Gestures, body language, and the person's tone of speech all help a baby learn what different words mean. </p>https://assets.aboutkidshealth.ca/AKHAssets/hearing_communication_first_year.jpgHearing and communication in the first year
