Signing with your baby

Junior is crying.  A lot.  You’ve tried food, you’ve tried a diaper change, you’ve tried cuddling, and still the crying continues.  Wouldn’t it be great if he could just tell you what’s wrong?  Well, if you sign with your baby he can!  Sure, he may not be able to express his angst at having his toy truck taken away, but he could point to it and sign “more.” 

While it may sound a bit intimidating, using sign language with your baby is quite simple to incorporate into your daily routine.  And the benefits are well worth the effort.  Babies are able to understand words well before they are physically able to speak.  Being able to communicate their needs and wants results in fewer tantrums and less frustration.  Signing babies also talk sooner, have larger vocabularies, and score higher on IQ tests (at age 7-8) than non-signing babies.  So check out some books and get started!
