Top 10 Baby Signs

Baby Sign Language
Being in tune with your baby is probably an underrated attribute a parent can have, but when you're vibing with your baby, you reduce baby stress and ultimately, the stress on yourself as well.
 
This all begins with communication and being able to understand what your baby's needs. Baby signing (baby sign language/ ASL) is just another tool for your baby to show you what they need at an early age. See below for our Top 10 Baby Signs!
 
  1. More - Gather your fingers together on both hands. Tap them together several times.

  2. Please - Place your hand onto your chest. Move your hand in a circular motion several times.
    Baby Sign Please
  3. All Done - Open both hands with your palms facing towards you. Twist your wrist quickly with palms facing away.
    Baby Sign All Done
  4. Food - Gather your fingers together. Tap your mouth several times.

  5. Milk - Open and close your hand, as if squeezing.

* Pointing - This is a great tool as well. Although not an official American Sign Language, the great thing about baby signing is that any sign that is helpful to you and your baby is accepted! Pointing is a perfect example to help your little one express what they want, without having to learn that specific spoken word.
