Watch and then Sign With Your Baby!

Watch your child for their facial expressions, body language and where their attention is focused. When you turn off everything else and sit with them and just watch, it will help you recognize their feelings and interests. Then you’ll be able to label their feeling and interests using signs and words.

For signs for feelings and for other items your baby is interested have a look at this wonderful website, one of my new favourites!

Watch your child and narrate their world using animated words, signs and facial expressions. Watch your child and then they’ll watch you!
