This is where you make a special sign language for you and your older baby/toddler to communicate with. Supposedly, it reduces tantrums and really helps you communicate with your baby. One of my dh's classmates sent him a long e-mail on this. She really loved it. Here's the web page for it - http://www.babysigns.com/index.shtml

Has anyone tried it? Kelly raves about it.

WE bought a "kit" with a video and a guide you can stick on the fridge.....It is called Sign with your baby by Joseph Garcia

It works really well....Jerry and I have totally slacked off on showing new signs...butI was just tellinghim we need to start up again. It does make things easier

We started using signs with our daughter at 7 months. She is a year now and knows about 15 signs. It really helps in my opinion to cut down on frustration. No one believed that she could learn it when I first started and now they are all amazed!

I always used signs with my kids but ALWAYS spoke whilst doing them.
I find it a great way to teach talking. Skye doesn't use it much anymore, but still waves. She's too cute, she waves and says Bye Bye, CYA!

I have seen alot of other children, pointing to things at the age of 3 and making a grunting noise instead of talking. I guess some kids are lazy and just use signing as their main communication rather than words.
