    This site is awesome! I’ve been working with my 6-month-old baby boy from the signs I learned on this website, and right now he can sign milk, mommy, and daddy! :) I was really excited about finding you guys, because you make signing so easy and fun!

    Hello, I love teaching my son new words to sign. He is almost 13 months and is learning how to communicate with us! He has a stuffed animal named Marshmallow. I was wondering what is the sign for Marshmallow? Thank you!

    ADMIN – Hi Heather,

    Marshmallow looks like you are pinching a cube, between your middle and pointer finger, and you thumb using both hands.

    Hi, your website is very helpful. Thank you for this. Can you add “carry me” please. Thank you.

    ADMIN – Hi James,

    For carry me, we use the sign up (for pick me up). The sign looks like you are pointing up.

    Hello I am Speech and Language Pathology. Your web side is amazing. I need the flash cards of this vocabulary: paper towel, lamp, take, shake, put or cast. If I can help?

    Thank you very much!

  5. Lynnette

    Can you add pain and hurt? I can’t find them but would like my baby to tell me if shes hurting esp with her teething now.

    ADMIN – Hi Lynette,

    We have added hurt.

    What is the sign for purse and ring? Thank you!

    ADMIN:
    Purse: What you do is you bend your fingers at the large knuckles and put the pad of your thumb on the fingers (as if holding a piece of paper between your thumb and fingers) and then you, (ahem) “jam” (lightly) your hand up into your armpit twice
    Ring: The sign for ring is done by creating a ring with your thumb and index of your dominant hand and sliding the finger-ring on the ring finger of your non-dominant hand.

    Hi, i would like to know the sign for burp, gas or bellyache. Thanks.
    (My son who is 3 month old naturally express burp by passing his hand from belly to throat)

    ADMIN:
    The sign for “hurt” is made by extending the index fingers of both hands. Bring the fingers toward each other twice using a jabbing movement.
    To communicate a bellyache baby can point to his belly and follow it by the sign described above.

    Hi there!

    We love your site, the videos are extremely helpful (and they seem to be my little boy’s favorite TV show ;).

    Would you mind adding pinwheel to the list? I usually use the ASL site if I cannot find something here, but they didn’t have it either, and I’m using a sign we’ve found on youtube instead. Not sure if it’s correct – finger pointing to an open palm (the palm with splayed fingers, turning back and forth)? My son finds it easy enough to make (he’s obsessed with pinwheels, so picked it up in no time), but I like knowing what the universal sign is.

    Thank you!

    ADMIN – Hi Cam,

    I don’t think there is an official ASL sign for pinwheel, it is usually fingerspelled. What you are referring to sounds like a ‘homesign.’ If enough people like you start using it, the sign will eventually get incorporated into the official ASL lexicon.

    Please add flashcard for Pacifier.

    ADMIN – Hi Kay,

    Thanks for making that suggestion. We have added Pacifier / Binkie to the baby sign dictionary.

    I have been teaching baby sign language to my baby for the last three months. We have mastered over twenty signs. Your website is the only resource I use to teach my baby sign language. I need to know if there is a sign for pray. Each night we give grace with our meals and also before we go to bed. I would love for my baby to know the sign for pray.

    ADMIN – Hi Martina,

    Pray is a natural sign, it looks like you are putting your hands together to pray.

    I love this site. I just started teaching signs to my son, and it is wonderful. I’m so excited, but my child loves his pacifier. What would be a sign for when he wants his pacifier? Also what would we use for nap time? I wasn’t sure if I should use night time for nap time, we have a different routine between the two, I don’t want to confuse him.
    Thanks So Much. Wonderful site!

    ADMIN – Hi Lisa,

    Great to hear. We added the pacifier sign to our list of signing vocabulary. The sign in ASL looks like you are taking a pacifier out of your mouth and putting it back in.

    For nap, we usually use the sleep sign. Children usually understand the difference between a day-nap and sleeping at night from context. But, if you want you can improvise a different sign to indicate more specifically which one of those two sleep times you are referring to.

    What are the signs for pee and poop? Thanks!

    ADMIN – Hi Liza,

    Thanks for the suggestions, we have added these important potty signs!
