According to an Australian mother, her baby son was able to talk at six weeks old. She shared her tips on how to get your child to talk early.
Although most babies start talking around 12 to 18 months old, she claims that her son was able to speak his first full sentence by 11 weeks old.
In her TikTok video, the mother explained that one of the most important factors that she learned when it came to talking to her son was to make sure that her hand is on the neck and that she touches the face gently.
She also said that if she acts like this, her child will respond better.

According to the mother, her son was able to start saying his first words at six weeks old.
He was able to understand words by four weeks. She also noted that it’s important to start talking early to help your child develop a good first language.
However, she added that it may not work for your child. She urged other parents to not be discouraged and keep trying.
Although the mother has received positive feedback about her son’s progress, she has also faced criticism from other parents who believe that he is not saying his actual words.
One of the people who watched the videos said that the child was just “cooing” and that it’s coincidence that his expressions sound like words.
One of the other parents commented on the videos and said that they were glad that the child was talking.
Others made light of the mother’s parenting skills. However, according to the mother, she is not surprised by the negative comments that she has received.
She said that she doesn’t expect everyone to agree with her parenting methods.
Instead, she encourages other parents to continue to share their positive feedback and encourage their kids to talk early.
According to the mother, her son started saying “hello”, “I love you”, and “blue” several times a day.
