Check out a recent review of babbling babbies in a parenting blog:
"Some of them you do naturally (e.g. peekaboo) and some of them are things I would never have thought of (e.g. wet play with bubbles). It’s helpful to have them around as a prompt and when I’m lacking inspiration."

New babies are geared up to communicate, they do this when they let you know that they are hungry, uncomfortable or tired. How you respond to them will teach them the skills that they need to turn these cries into words then sentences over the next two years.
