New research demonstrates that language interactions are as important to babies’ brains as food is to their bodies.

The Talk With Me Baby campaign aims to increase the amount of positive language interactions babies in our communities experience. This will help them develop the foundation for entering kindergarten ready to learn, which sets them up for success in school and life.
Talking to babies is free and can fit into to other activities like making dinner and grocery shopping. Everyone can help!

Baycare Medical Group Pediatrics and University of South Florida Pediatrics are getting involved by sharing new information with parents of babies during well-baby visits.
