Not knowing what their baby is thinking is a frustration that every parent is all too familiar with. If only we knew why he’s crying, what hurts, how the cat got covered in purple marker…
Before your baby or toddler can talk, it is as if you are both lost in a foreign country with no knowledge of the language. Luckily, we have hands that can take over when spoken words fail.
Think about it – your baby probably already waves hello and bye, lifts his arms when he wants to be picked up, tugs her ears when they hurt, and points to something he wants. These are natural signs that your child uses to communicate.
By harnessing babies’ natural use of basic signs, The Baby Signs Program:
- Gives babies a natural, easy way to communicate before they can talk
- Provides babies with the signs that they can use most easily to express their needs, thoughts, and feelings until they have words
- Jump-starts communication and eliminates frustration for both babies and parents
- Gives parents the skills and knowledge to be comfortable using signs with their babies
- Helps you open the world to you baby, while giving you a glimpse into your baby’s world, too
- Increases babies’ vocabularies and IQ
- Helps to strengthen your parent-baby bond through your own special language with each other
