Routine care-giving activities such as changing diapers are the best times for helping infants and toddlers hear and learn language. Take every chance to talk affectionately and softly to the child as you care for them.
Before picking up the child, say, “It is time to change your diaper.” Give them a little time to finish what they are doing. For example, ask “Can you put your toy dog down next to you while we change your diaper?”
Use words and show respect for the child as you care for them. Ask, “May I have your foot so that I can take off your shoe?” and “I need to take off you pants. Would you lift your bottom so that I can pull them down? Thank you!”
Praise the child for any help they give. Say, “You really helped me change your diaper.”
Use words to describe body parts and clothing: “I am going to pull your pants back up your legs. Let’s put your red shirt back on.”
