At this age, play with her, talk to her (I discourage the use of baby talk) and just be there for her. Don't worry about teaching things, they learn best through natural observation.

There's nothing wrong with asking for help! That's what everyone on here is doing right? It shows that you're open minded enough to look for answers. You can always try to get some 'toddler' books from the library as well.



Hey, when I was pregnant my mom kept buying undershirts and I had NO idea what they were, I was just like, aren't these a little short for winter time? LOL Sooo niave.

Yeah, learning to talk is probably number one. Oh and read books to her all the time. It's definitely a good thing for kids.



Don't let a kid under 2 watch tv, and once she's two only let her watch half an hour to an hour. I know sometimes it's tempting to let them watch more but only so much tv is a great tool for getting stuff done. If you let them watch it all the time they only focus on it for a bit before they start doing something else. If you let them watch it only once/twice a day they're glued to it for that little bit and you have time to do what you want (have a shower, cook dinner etc.).



Good luck!
