Sign Language and Your Baby!

August 16, 2011

So signing with your baby has become very popular over the last 10 years, this is because we’ve realized that babies are able to express themselves far earlier than the little muscles in the mouth are able to vocalize their thoughts!

Imagine how truly frustrating it can be to not be able to express yourself or ask for what you need or want! They say that babies can start to sign as early as 7 months old…They say it is quite easy and repetition is the key!

First – Start by signing regularly when speaking with your baby…they will start to recognize your signs
Second – Your baby will start to imitate your signs
Third – They will begin to attach meaning to the signs…and begin to use them to communicate…it’s just that easy!

#1 rule…consistency! Here are a few signs to get you started…for more information head to your local Chapters and grab a book, there are a ton to choose from!
