These days, teaching sign language to babies is the newest thing. Teaching simple sign language to infants allows parents to communicate with their children even before the little guys learn to talk. Associating such words as “Mommy” and “Daddy” with hand gestures allows babies to learn to get their thoughts across without speaking.
Often I’m asked by new moms when to start signing with your baby? I tell families I started signing with Joshua and Sabrina when they were 6 months…but now, knowing what I know, I would start much earlier…from birth.
