Learning to talk can take many hours of practice and repetition. Even from birth, babies are hard wired to seek connection. Children learn how to be social by seeing and hearing how we connect with each other, which is why spending time with our young children is so valuable.
Some babies just love to get up close and cuddly with a soft toy or comforter when they’re going to sleep. Interestingly, the formal name for a soft toy is a ‘transitional love object’, because they help infants to make the emotional transition from dependence to independence.
