Your baby is able to communicate with you, even if I don't know how to speak yet. Knowing how to interpret what he is saying and encouraging him with his first words is important for his language development. At first, the caresses, the intensity and melody of the voice, the different ways of looking at mother, will be the signals that guide your baby in his interactions and first contacts with the world.

The look, the vocalizations, the expressiveness of his face, the movement of his arms and legs, are some of the communication resources of the baby, which will become more complex thanks to the maturation of his nervous system and the exchanges with his parents.

Crying will be one of the first signs that the baby is uncomfortable. Your skill and intuition in interpreting these gestures and sounds properly will be essential to establish a good communicationbetween you.

The success or failure of first communicative exchangesAs well as the ease or difficulty of establishing them will depend on the characteristics of the interlocutors, their character and their attitude towards the act of communicating. Children can be:

1. Assets
They are children able to initiate an interaction and to respond to all communicative attempts by adults. Thus, we see babies smiling to provoke the mother's smile and waving their arms when she smiles back. With them, it's easy to interact and encourage your progress.

2. Shy or reluctant
These children they do not initiate communication, but they can respond to our attempts. We will have to try harder with them.

3. Passives
Are the ones do not initiate or respond to communication attempts of adults. They go 'their own way' and it's hard to get us into their game. With this type of children it is more difficult to maintain the interest of communicating, but they are the most in need of our encouragement and our desire to connect.

Starting from the child's interest and letting him lead the play space means counting on his attention and participation from the beginning. For communication to flow, keep these recommendations in mind:

1. Overcontrol
When we always choose the game or direct the activity of children, when we constantly examine them with thousands of questions without giving almost time for them to answer us or when we help children without letting them display their skills (even if they make mistakes at the beginning and a while later also), communicative interactions are diminished.

2. Low participation
When adults have fun alone with the game without counting on the child, when we do not wait and do not follow their interest, surely, the child will disconnect and reject the participation of the adult.

3. Little patience
When we do not wait long enough for the child's response in the dialogue turns and we continue with our own, we close the door to dialogue. Adults must wait expectantly for this intervention (a look, a gesture, a smile) to show our interest and then offer a response.
