I Love Teaching Baby and Toddler Sign Language

Tonight, I had a private class. This was my 7th week out of the 8 week program. This mom has been excited to teach signing to her baby daughter since I first started working with this family. Her daughter is now 7 months old. I was watching the mom feed her baby and the daughter began to sign milk! The mom just smiled, signed and said you are signing “milk”! To see the first sign of a child is such a great highlight to my work!

This shows that you never know when your child will sign. Most sign between 7-12 months of age. Now this mom and child can communicate the need for milk- something that crying and guess work did before!

Happy Signing!
