Babies hear and understand language before they are able to speak. Use Baby Sign Language as a method to communicate with your baby. Haven't you ever looked into an infants eyes and wondered what they were thinking? Or listened to your toddler cry and tried to guess what they want? Communicate with your baby by signing instead of whining. You will encourage your baby to express itself. Successful communication with an infant or toddler leads to understanding. Experience the joy and wonder of a child's learning. Understand their world and know what they are thinking or what they need. A first time parent shares, "Being able to understand what my baby wants has made such a difference in our relationship - our bond." Baby signs are the building blocks to that relationship.
