    Can you add the sign for “clean up”?

    ADMIN,
    Both palms face each other one representing a floor and the other one representing a wipe, The dominant hand wipes the “floor” hand by rubbing it twice across the non-dominant which remains palm up at chest height.

    I’m teaching my son to pray. How do you show a Amen sign as I don’t see it on your dictionary?

    ADMIN: There are several versions to sign Amen but the easiest for little ones is this one: both hands open, palms facing each other with fingers upward; bring hands down and together until palms are touching.

    My son is super into his belly button. Is there a sign for that or do you just point to that as well?

    Hi Erin,
    For belly button we prefer pointing.

    Can you add the sign for bathroom?

    ADMIN – Hi Liz,

    We use the sign potty to signal that a child wants to go to the bathroom.

    Hi, great site, too bad nothing similar exists in french for us !! My son is 14 month old and is eager to learn new signs every day. Is there a sign for comforter / cuddly toy ? It is not an animal, in our case, rather some kind of goblin… Many thanks!

    ADMIN – Hi Tilde,

    There is no specific sign for the Goblin Toy, but you could use the sign for toy, or the sign for monster. If he has started combining signs, you could combine those two and do monster toy.

    Love this site! Wish you had a phone app. Is there a sign for the word dangerous?

    ADMIN – Hi Natt,

    The sign for danger consists in raising your left hand to chest height palm facing your body; at the same time raise your left hand with fist closed and thumb extended and proceed to raise it up as in a drinking motion tapping against the left forearm with the right forearm. Repeat the motion twice.

    Hi, I have a son, he is 10 weeks old. I am Thai and I want to start to communicate and teach him in English. I am not very good in English but am trying everyday to speak with my friend at my work. I am trying to understand the Baby Sign Language and find a Thai book. I just found this website today, and it is great for me. Now, My son can not speak, but this will help me to communicate with me.

    I had been doing this with my nephew since he was about 9 months. He is now 2 years old and he is learning swiftly. I love this site and I also work in a Child Care I also do these with some of our infants.

  11. Paula

    Hi, i love this website! My son is 11 weeks old and very colicky, so he cries non stop. I am going to start signing with him to see if I can understand him better. Thank you!

  12. Hailey Moser

    Hello, i’m 12 years old and this website is amazing for me. I know it’s for kids but it helps a lot thanks

  13. Gilia

    Amazing site! Too bad it’s not possible to type in the word needed instead of having to go back and forth to the dictionary word list!

  14. Collette

    Think we saw a rough “milk” sign this morning!! Happy! :)

    He loves avocado, how do you sign this?

    Thanks for the awesome resource!

    ADMIN – Hi Collette,

    Woohoo! Avacado is usually finger-spelled in ASL. One easy home-sign that is often used is to cup your non-dominant hand, make your dominant hand into a first, and press and twist your dominant hand into your your non-dominant hand. (As if you were mashing an avocado to make guacamole)

  15. Tracie

    Hi! I love this site because I like having the video to watch. Sometimes it’s hard to just see a picture.

    What is the sign for “bless you” after someone sneezes?

    Thanks!

  16. Andrea Donnally

    I would like to know the sign for Carrots.

    ADMIN – Hi Andrea,

    Carrot looks like you are eating a carrot. You take your dominant hand toward your mouth as if you were holding a carrot, and you making a munching motion with your mouth.

  17. Lori Heimbach

    I love this site! Thanks for all the wonderful videos to help me learn the signs…they are so simple and easy to remember. I may have missed it but is there a sign for pacifier/binky?

    ADMIN – Hi Lori,

    We added the sign for binkie and pacifier. Thanks for suggesting it.

  18. Richie Allsop

    Hi, loving learning the signs and using them with my son Danny. Is there a sign for bicycle? Cheers Richie

    ADMIN – Hi Richie,

    To sign bicycle, close both hands into a fist at chest-height make circles as if you are using hand-pedals. We have added the video above.

  19. Simone

    My babies are learning new signs every day and they love it :)

    My daughter is now 3 yrs old. I’ve been signing with my daughter since she was 4 months old. She caught on very quickly and easily. She still signs, and is now surpassing my basic knowledge!
