Signs, signs, everywhere there’s signs

December 11, 2013 in giveaway,review

With my oldest daughter, I had no idea about teaching babies sign language until they went to daycare. Fortunately, daycare taught her many of the signs she would need to communicate with us…and taught us what they meant, too.

With E, we knew we wanted to do the same thing. It’s amazing how much frustration can be removed when they can communicate with you that they want more milk, or they are all done. It takes the guess work out and makes many experiences more pleasant.

She’s hard to capture in action, but she was telling us she wanted “more”!

Since we only knew a couple words, when Baby Sign Language offered to send their Deluxe Sign Language Kit to review, I happily accepted. The kit includes a Baby Sign Language Guide Book, a Baby Sign Language Dictionary, a Baby Sign Language Flash Cards and a Baby Sign Language Wall Chart. Each of these have helpful pictures showing how to do the sign for each word.

In addition to learning more, milk, eat, and all done, we were able to add in many more like ball, book, cat, mommy, daddy and grandma and grandpa. E never did all of the signs perfectly, but she was able to communicate with us. When she was on the bus with grandma and grandpa at Disney World, she made it very clear to them that she wanted to eat!

The wall chart featured the most used signs for us and was handy to be able to look at for a quick glance.

Using the books, there were a couple signs that were a little harder for me to figure out, so the online dictionary was a nice resource when I needed those.

We do signing with our second little one and we love it! The “more” and “all done” signs are super helpful. I remember wondering every meal time if my first daughter was full or just distracted and it was so frustrating.

That’s an awesome tool! I definitely used signing with my oldest but not so much with the other two. “More” was always popular though… ;) She’s SO cute!
