Learn Baby Sign Language

Many people are amazed that babies as young as 6 to 10 months old can learn sign language.  They think, "How can baby sign, when she can't even talk?"  The answer is quite simple.  A baby knows what you are saying long before she is able to speak the words herself.  (Be careful what you say in front of your baby!)  And babies develop the fine muscles in their hands long before they develop the fine muslces in the mouth and tongue required for speech.  Thus, babies are equipped to communicate with you with their hands before they can talk.  So don't underestimate your child.  She will amaze you with what she can say, with her hands!  Click here to continue reading.....

Teaching your little one to communicate through using baby sign language can help alleviate some of the frustration that can occur in baby's younger years.  Click here to learn some common words.
