Researcher's Book Claims Babies Are Born Talking
Cincinnati, OH -- Parents fawning over their newborn baby may be mistaking the tot's talking for cooing.
Author David Lippert has written the book "Born Talking," (BornTalking.com Publishers) which claims that babies can talk as early as three weeks old, but many parents mistake their child's gurgling as nonsense.
Lippert explains that babies are limited to making sounds with their throats and their lips, not their tongues, so they can't exactly replicate the diction of adult speech. His book teaches parents to recognize the infant's way of talking.
At one month, he claims most children are capable of getting out three words: "hi," "na-na" for hungry, and "ummm" for food.
By two months they can make sounds like "ungy" or "unga" for hungry and "mama" and by the five month mark, they can say dozens more.
Lippert says infants speak regardless of which language they speak. The baby word "buh-buh" means papa in Italian and "nang" means milk in Chinese.
