Playing with a 6 month old baby

There are lots of ways to play with a 6 month old baby with toys and books which will help him or her develop her skills:

Babies this age will communicate with smiles, laughs and they will be babbling away with sounds (ba ba, da da). When you play talk to them, repeat back the sounds he or she says to facilitate language learning. For more language development read baby books together and sing nursery rhymes. Toys which introduce words, sounds and phrases are also great to encourage baby to learn language. Toys that repeat songs can also be great for improving communication skills.

At 6 months, some babies will be rolling over and may get on their hands and knees and rock. Encourage movement by placing toys just out of baby's reach to encourage baby's to start crawling.

Peek a boo is a great game for babies of this age. They will learn that even though they can't see people, they still exist.
