New research released by the National Literacy Trust, shows that a fifth of parents believe that communicating with their baby is only necessary from the age of 3 months old. Because of this a new Talk To Your Baby campaign has been launched

website is run by the National Literacy Trust, and has lots of helpful information you can download to help your baby's speech development.
