Communicating with Babies

Is there anything cuter than seeing a little baby using sign language? It is more than just cute??? Researchers have found that using sign language with babies does help to improve their language learning and IQs. So more parents are using sign language with their infants, whether they are hearing or deaf.

Your baby will start talking at around 2 years old, but he/she can actually communicate with you using his/her hands much earlier than that - as early as 6 months old! Imagine your baby being able to share with you that he needs a diaper change or would like some milk, or that his tummy aches using sign language instead of fussing, crying, and whining.
You can find a lot of Youtube videos on this like the following to help get your baby started.
