Teaching Tips

  • Teaching sign language to babies is easy when you have a few basic signs you can use many times throughout the day. Start with diaper as one of the first!
  • Diapers may be a bit stinky – but they can be fun too! Have some fun doing a diaper dance  with your little one and sign “diaper” as you dance!

Close two fingers and your thumb right at your diaper. Diaper.
