I would say that my first trial on productive communication to a baby was quite a success. Productive communication can eventually be implemented to a young infant. Yeay! But was it really? Or yesterday was just my lucky day? So, today I gave another try. I emphasise on the KISS aspect, to keep my messages short and simple.
Women, by nature, speaks more words than man. Way a lot more! That makes mama sometimes talking in a loooongg sentences to baby Lulu. Especially when I am tired and the baby is cranky at the same time. The talk can become even looooonger.. huhu..
Being aware of the KISS aspects, I shorten my messages and give sometime for her to comprehend it before talking another sentences.
When changing her diaper:
"Alula, please stay still."
"You can grab this toys."
When accompanying her eating her solid food:
"You will eat carrot, broccoli, and salmon." (while showing each food as I talk)
"Chew it like this, baby!" (while showing her example how to chew)
When I have to pray:
"Lulu, Mama will pray for 5 minutes. Please stay calm, OK?"
When we have to go somewhere:
"Alula, we will go to supermarket."
"I need to buy fruits."
Her reactions were quite good. With shorter command, she was able to pay more attention until I finish my sentences. Of course unless she's sleepy.... >.<
