According to a new McGill University study, babies tend to spend 40 percent longer listening to sounds from other infants than to baby-talking adults. Nevertheless, the study’s lead author encourages parents to talk to their toddlers because they tend to respond to such interaction regardless of who’s behind it. “This may motivate infants to be vocally active and make it easier to evaluate their own vocalizations, perhaps energizing and supporting spoken-language development,” Linda Polka tells UPI.
