Customers say

This is a great product and very educational. I started the videos when my daughter was 6 months 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 months. I’m having to upgrade to Signing Time 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!

When can I start signing with my baby?

 You can start signing to your baby as soon as he/she is born

  • As you begin learning sign, use those signs when you talk to your new baby.
  • Baby won’t be able to sign back at this time, but he is watching and learning!
  • Before your baby signs to you, she will let you know that she understands a sign by responding with a smile, pointing, or kicking her feet.
  • While most babies begin to sign between 9-13 months, some babies start signing as early as 5-6 months! It is never too early to start.
  • It’s never too late to start signing! If your baby is 6-12 months or older, start signing right away!
