Signing: Belt in baby sign language looks like your are bringing together the two ends of a belt. You start the sign by making both hands into fists with your thumb and middle finger extended. Beginning with your hands positioned at your hips, bring the two hand around the front of your waist until the protruding fingertips touch.
Usage: Belt and other clothing signs like pants, shirt, and shoes are useful as baby gets old enough to start dressing themselves. You can start to prepare them for dressing themselves by helping them sign the words for each item of clothing as you put it on. This starts to get them familiar with each item of clothing, and makes them feel helpless when you dress them.
