One of the main concerns of parents is knowing how to understand babies. Something very complex at the moment we can not hear your thoughts. From birth, babies have a series of instincts, which will guide their personal development. Some of these instincts are aimed at communicating and learning oral language. We are going to review the most important milestones in communication.
How do babies communicate?
First we must keep in mind that it is communication. It is about the process, by which, an individual, transmits an information. Although to be correct, both individuals must understand the same code. Therefore, not everything that gives us information about the baby does not mean that it is communication. But, it is part of the process of learning to communicate. Let's see the steps that our baby will follow until he wants to tell us something concrete and he does it with a means that we can understand him.
The weeping. It is a state that babies have since birth. Crying, it serves babies to let us know that they are not good. Either because he is sick, or simply because he is bored. In the first weeks, the baby will realize that when he cries we will go to him. What you will use in the future as a call among other functions. It will be the first process by which the baby transmits his feelings to us. It is in a certain way a 'negative communication'.
The smile. It's funny, the process of smiling. Since he has more to let us know he's fine. The human being when he is born has a process by which he takes a long time to defend himself. Depending on the mother, both to feed themselves and to defend themselves from the inclemency of their surroundings. With what we may find curious, we developed a system by which to facilitate and bring people closer to us. It's no coincidence that babies are so cute. His features (big head, big eyes, very centered and chubby face) are faces that inspire tenderness and dependence. What makes us feel the need to protect him. But, the same smile. The first smiles, will be only gestures, without feeling behind. And with the weeks, the baby will begin to smile at us to create a bond with him. It will be a 'positive communication'.
Reach things. From one day to another. Our baby will surprise us pleasantly. When we pass by him, he will stretch his arms to catch us, although he can not move from the place. It is the instinct to take things. From that moment on, the baby will try to reach everything that catches his attention. In truth it is an instinct to know and learn. Although it serves us as communication. For the first time, we will really know what the baby wants.
Point. In a way, it is considered the baby's first act of communication. This movement that seems so simple. It is much more complex than we imagine. If you notice, a few weeks before he did it, when we pointed to some object our baby looked at our finger. I did not understand the concept of pointing. It will be to see it again and again. Surely when we point, then we end up making noise by tapping the object we want to look with the hand. We do this in an innate way for the baby to learn. It will relate the concepts and after repeating it times and times, the child will understand the concept and will be able to do it himself.
