Gracie just did her first sign today at 10 months! I'm so excited =) She signed "milk" when I went to put her in the Boba to nurse her lol. I've been slacking! I need to get on the ball and teach her a lot more now that she is getting it.

Who else is doing signing with their babies or plans to?

Oh you can get the Baby Signing Time videos at the library

Quoting schultzal:

Thank you! I will look those up. :)

Quoting jconney80:

I used Baby Signing Time videos for myself and hubby. Then I would look up how to do signs on They have video dictionaries. There are videos for each word showing you how to do it.

We taught my two year old over 200. We would point it out then sign it several times while saying it several times. Just lots of repetition and using it while speaking about it in context.

Quoting schultzal:

I am planning to! If you know of any excellent resources, please let me know. :)

When my diapers wet I get upset, I want it off, I cry, please change me.

My LO loves it. lol.

I only did it with my second because he did not talk.

That's awesome ;) We didn't do signing with our first, and I'm unlikely to do signing with this one. I think the main reason is because dh wouldn't be on board with it and I don't want to have to do it all myself. DD let me know what she needed without doing specific signs. Worked for us :)

I didn't start with my first until he was 1 but e used milk, eat, ad please until he started talking recently. I did not work with him hardly at all and he gOT it FAST! I will start early with this baby once he/she comes.

I started when Ds was born and certain words I always sign. He's almost 7 months and doesn't sign but sometimes he'll look at his hands like he knows he's suppose to do something. I always sign I love you and he smiles and laughs.

That's about when my son did his first sign.  He did more and daddy for a long time then one day at the breaskfast table he did milk, eat and drink correctly!  Once he picked up those we've been adding in a couple new signs each week and he gets them fast (he's 14 months now).  We had to get a book because I ran out of ones to teach :)  It's amazing how much he understands and communicates without verbals (he doesn't have any words that we can understand yet).

He signs: book, daddy, dog, all done, more, eat, drink, milk, diaper change, thank you, duck
