Tips on How to Teach Baby to Talk and Speak in an Early Age
The number one tip for teaching baby on learning talk is to talk to them throughout the day. Talk, Talk, Talk... Tired? Speak a little more to your baby and make a friendly, happy facial expression with eye-to-eye contact. The learning and picking up words will begin as they hear and see your words and match them to your facial appearance.
Initially, it could be a little baffling to talk to a baby, especially if they don't respond to you, but you should keep this habit of constantly talking to them. Determination and persistence is the key here.
Tips: Some Tips on Talking to a small baby. Try to name objects and things around the baby like pointing at and say Daddy, say Mama, picking up a book say Book, say Tree, Food, Milk, etc.
Showing the child what you are talking about will help them so much in relating the world with the sounds. Do try to bring up small words and name objects around them consistently.
Ask more than just a simple yes-no question that will encourage the baby to try and use there speech pattern.
Tip: Whenever they ask you for anything, try not to give them without them trying to say/babble or naming the object they require and support/help them by pointing out by words like, "doll, do you need doll say Doll or Ball" etc. Ask open-ended questions to boost them to say and use sound and form their speech development pattern quickly.
Teach Baby Your Langauge Not the other way around: You may have seen lots of parents, people talk to there baby in a very different language, voice. It is kind of cute when talking to a baby but do not change your words or sound. Obsovisly our tone is very soft and different when talking to baby but what you should keep in mind is that you should try to speak the words clearly and dont change the words. If you change the words, it becomes baby's language, and you are not teaching baby language to yourself but teaching baby your language. Speaking cute babies words (incorrect words) may be cute, and all but you are not helping them by speaking such and empathizing on such words, the baby will think okay this is how you say it, and later on, you will start questioning Why the baby speaking the incorrect words. When the baby start speaking how does speaking cute baby's words (incorrect words) help him? It doesn't so the sounds and words matter do not change them. It's cute in talking differently with babies, but keep that short and be constant on correct words and happy tone matters.

It provides very simple words with images and drawing that babies pick up very fast and help them recognize the world around them easily and quickly.
I highly highly recommend that you get as many books as you possibly can for your baby. If you think my baby is very small to understand and read any books, you might not understand how fast they grow and how quickly they consume the new knowledge around them; also you cannot go wrong with books, there is absolutely no way any parents can go wrong by providing there baby with books unless they start nibbling on them which you should always look out for. It is a habit that many people try to establish with their kids, so you should try to set the habit of reading books from a very early age as possible.
Create an intensive speech atmosphere for the child. The baby should frequently be presented to speech, songs, and stories; in such activities books and toys do you a great help. Hearing stories read aloud gives baby a chance to hear words they do not encounter in everyday speech.
