    Hey a video is really needed i am in a college signing class and really need the help I’ll like to keep my A lol

    ADMIN – Hi Marie,

    Perhaps you may want to use a website focused on ASL instead of baby sign language.

    Yes plz a video is really, I don’t think I am doing this right and other sites and only spelling it out right

    ADMIN – Hi Lorena,

    Keep in mind that BSL does not strive for perfection. Instead, your goal is communication. Determine how the sign is going to look for your baby and roll with it.

    Video is necessary here I don’t understand photo my daughter loves avocado.

    ADMIN-Hi Misty,

    I have added your request to the video queue. Video production is cost and time intensive but we are trying to have as many as we can. To sign avocado make your non-dominant hand into a fist with your wrist looking up. Your dominant hand is also closed with the thumb extended. Have both hands meet and make a twisting motion as in mashing something.
