Baby Signing – Your Ticket To A Happier And A Healthier Baby!

Author : Gabriel Gelua

It is true that when you are a baby, there's very little you can do to tell the grown ups what you want. You just resort to crying and making your little fists go up and down. If you are a parent, try putting yourself in your baby's shoes. It's not a happy situation to be in. So, why not raise a happier and healthier baby by teaching your kid baby signing? Baby signing could greatly relieve the stress and frustration on your baby's part when he or she is trying to communicate before being able to use their tongue, lips and voice box.

Sign language or the traditional American Sign Language (ASL) is used for people who are auditory challenged and cannot communicate effectively because of it. Being deaf can be quite limiting but with the help of this form of language, there are a lot of people who cannot hear but are living normal, successful lives. This type of signage is used to teach baby's how to talk with their body language, limbs and face.

The company aptly named Baby Sign published a best selling book that teaches parents how to do baby sign language or baby signing. The Baby Sign Dictionary is filled with topics, mostly 100 popular requests from parents, which are designed to cater to the most basic needs of the baby. It is effective because hand and eye coordination is already possible and it greatly helps in the acquisition of verbal skills that baby will need to eventually learn to express their selves.

The baby signs are pretty basic and are made for common words such as eat, sleep, more, play, carry etc… even before they know what word means it. Baby signing can be a great relief for parents too since they can immediately address their child's needs and lessen the stressful crying. Most babies begin signing between seven or nine months because that's when the eye-hand coordination is more developed.

According to research, those who have been taught baby signing at a very early age grow up to be of higher intelligence and has a greater ability to learn a second language. It also expands the vocabulary of a toddler. Once they know ASL, you will experience a more happy and relaxed life with your baby!
