About Us

BabySignLanguage.com is a project for parents teaching infants and toddlers early communications skills. We believe that early communication sets the foundation for accelerated learning, reduced frustration, and a closer relationship between parent and child.

Our website contains baby sign language resources designed around the pedagogical needs of infants and toddlers. In everything we do we take into account the daily challenges confronted by new parents as they attempt to equip their babies with the tools to thrive.

This site was founded when we started teaching our own children how to sign. Our kids loved signing and we loved being able to share in their lives. After hundreds of shared secrets and averted tantrums we can’t understand how any parent could live without Baby Sign Language. We told everyone, and so our friends laid down the challenge, “why don’t you teach every parent Baby Sign Language?

We are constantly evolving and appreciate all feedback. We want to be a resource for every parent who wants to start communicating with their pre-verbal child through sign language. So send us your questions, comments, and concerns. We love hearing from you!

    Came across your website from a post on “The Bloggess”. My “babies” are well into the talking stage now, so I don’t have a lot of need for your site, but wanted to say best of luck with it all! :)

    My son is 12 weeks old. He is half Laotian and I want to teach him the Laotian language and some baby sign language. Will he get confused if I try to teach both at the same time?

    Awesome! I’m impressed..I couldn’t believe my eyes when I saw babies communicating by sign language..Lis, my daughter, is 2months and I do want to teach her baby sign language..But Mom needs to learn it first! Haha

    Tereza – I used baby sign language with my son (now almost 2) and breastfed until 22 months. I’m a huge fan of both nursing and baby sign. The great thing about teaching sign language to a hearing child is that you can modify a sign verbally to give it more context. For example, you can use the traditional sign for MILK (squeezing your hand) to mean both milk from the breast and milk from a cup. But when you speak the word at the same time you can add context and say “Mommy’s milk” or “Yummy milk” or “Milk from a cup.” Hope this helps! Good luck!

    Hello! I just discovered this website and I love it! Thank you for sharing! My husband and I are starting to incorporate the signs into talk with our 8 week old daughter. I love having another way to bond and communicate!

    Not at all. Toddlers are great learners and sign language helps them enhance their expressive abilities. Go for it and have fun!

    my youngest daughter is 15 months old and she is trying to copy what the older children do. I am thinking that maybe sign language would be helpful to decrease her frustration level in trying to communicate with us. What do you think?

    is it too late to introduce her to sign language? And I breastfeed and she nurses often, do you have a sign for nursing instead of milk or water? (she takes juice and water in a cup but nurses often at the breast and we use the word “yummy” to refer to the breast.)

    thanks so much, :)
