Somehow during the blog transfer, this post was deleted. So I thought I would post it again since it was one of my first posts! It made me kinda sad watching it…Little Brother was so tiny!
The best time to start introducing these signs is when your baby starts eating solid foods (around 6 months). Just model it for a while (while saying the word aloud) and eventually you can hold your child’s hand and show him how to make the signs. It will most likely take several months for your baby to sign on his own and it normally occurs a little before his first birthday (or perhaps sooner–depending on how consistent you have been). Again, keep in mind that every baby is different!
