DAN GERBER, MOTHER OF S Speech in a sense, begins at birth. It starts with sounds, mainly crying. These early communications are reflex actions, reflecting a response to some kind of discomfort or need. As sounds progress, coos express a contentment if baby's comfortable, perhaps pleasure at the sight of you. Then jabbering begins and that's the time he may be asking for something or trying to tell you he's just made a wonderful discovery. Last stage: formation of real words, formed at first by copycatting you. Sweet back'talk from you is a great help to your little babbler. The baby who is talked to often, is more likely to form words sooner. « Great discovery for a teether. Gerber Teething Biscuits offer help in the comfort department when teething gets troublesome. Extra-hard, they give baby the biting satisfaction be wants and needs. Scalloped edges and waflle-surface make for easy hoidability and maneuvering. Good traveling companions, too, when you and baby go galli- vantin'. Each one is wrapped in sparkling cellophane for sanitary pocketing purposes. Talk tactic. Baby talk, on your part, is O.K. when your sweet one is young. But once you spot those real tries at words, it's time to switch to the English language as it should be spoken. Tasty talk. When a happy babble follows a spoonful of good-tasting food, it may be a beckon for seconds. Could very well happen with Gerber Strained Creamed Cottage Cheese with Pineapple. Delectable? You bet. The mildest cottage cheese is perfectly mated with mellow pineapple. Smooth? Indeed. Custard-like and very creamy. As to nutrition, it's a good source of protein and riboflavin, an important B-vitamin. Serve it for lunch or supper to the sweet tune of approval. Gerber- Baby Foods, Box 72, Fremont, Mich.
