Not too long ago I did a post on babbling after I was asked by some friends to explain what babbling is exactly. I wanted to go ahead and share some additional information on “typical” speech and language development from birth to 12 months. Here is a chart I put together uses several different sources to help give you an idea of how your infant will be developing in the area of speech and language development in that first year of life.
The information above was adapted from the following sources:
