Starting out at about 8 months old, you may notice that your baby starts to become more independent and wants to communicate with you more but just doesn’t have the words. This can cause frustration for both baby and parents. A good way to alleviate some of this frustration is to teach your baby to communicate using baby signs. Learn some of the signs to better communicate with your baby and hopefully avoid some tantrums.

  1. That’s great Kristen! The intent to communicate is more important than how accurate the sign is. Little ones can get pretty creative with the “signs” they invent. It can be fun seeing what they come up with!

  2. All done was the sign we couldn’t live without. It was so helpful in reducing meltdowns early on, especially when we started solids.

  3. We started signing with my son really early on, but he just didn’t do it. We picked it up again around 10-11 months old, and he can pick up a word in just a few tries now! He has his own “dialect” with some of the signs (not a perfect match, but he knows what he’s saying and we do, too), but it works for us! He has also made up some of his own signs for certain words, which kind of cracks me up! In any case, signing has definitely been beneficial for us these last several months!
