✨ Top 5 Baby Signs ✨
Here are my top 5 baby signs for you to start using with your little ones today! Pick which signs are most useful to you and use them as much as you can.
Your baby watches everything you do; so the more you sign, the more likely they will copy you and sign back.
Remember we’re always talking when we sign and this will help your baby make the connection between the word and sign.
My top 5
👉 More – This has always been my number 1 sign. It’s such a useful sign and can be used in lots of different situations. Your baby may copy you with subtle signs like a tap on the knee or their arm, but keep on the look out. 😃
👉 Milk – An important one for our babies. This hand shape is really easy and babies can copy this sign from as little as 3 months old. Add meaning to the sign and use it every time you offer milk. 🐮 🍼
👉 Eat – really practical sign and helpful for weaning. It’s a literal sign, do you want food or are you hungry.🥦
👉 Thank you – this is a fun one and yes babies can say thank you! A good one to use with family members too and shows a clear understanding. 🤗
👉 Sleep – A clear sign to indicate your routine, bedtime or nap. It is so important to tell our babies what is happening and what is coming next. This is a literal sign too, to sleep on a pillow. 😴
Try to use these signs as much as you can. Pick the ones useful to your day and give them a try. Do let me know how you get on! Also, check out our other video on how baby sign can help you. 👌
