Having a debate with my partner and can't find anything about this. When does a baby understand that they are saying their name?
Our 10month old says his name, it's more sing-song and he even says it in my language and that of my partner. I don't really think he knows he is saying his own name, just some sounds he hears often. My partner thinks he says.it knowing it refers to him.
What age do they really understand references to themselves in words, must be 2-3yrs?
