Why sign with babies?

Baby Sign Language lets babies communicate their needs rather than crying. Children are able to understand language as early as 6 months, however the ability to speak requires complex fine motor skills that don’t develop until much later. The result is frustration and tantrums. Baby Signing Time will introduce your child to over 1,000 ASL signs.  For more information and tips click here

“This is a great product and very educational. I started the videos when my daughter was 6 mo. old. About a month later she signed her 1st word -milk. Her whole face lit up when she realized I knew what she wanted. She is now 18 mo.  I’m having to upgrade to series 1 because she has learned all the signs to Baby Signing Time. She walks around saying and signing “baby time” so we can play her videos. Definitely a great buy and great developmental tool!!

 

Baby Signing Time helps you break the communication barrier so you can communicate even before your baby learns to talk. It also wires their brain for learning. Teach your child’s first 100 words in signs, songs, and stories!
