To do the sign for baby, cross your arms with hands facing up, one arm resting on the other while touching one elbow with the fingers from the opposite hand, as if you are cradling a baby in your arms. Then gently move your hands from side to side, as if rocking the imaginary baby in your arms.
You can use the sign for baby whenever you meet another baby or are on an outing. Babies seem to be fascinated with other babies. When they start looking at the other baby, point and say, “There is a baby,“ while doing the sign.
Use the baby flash card in conjunction with the mommy and daddy flash cards. The objective is for your baby to develop self-awareness and understand familial connections. As your baby grows and gains further understanding of the world that surrounds them, you can begin to introduce signs for other members of their social structures, such as teachers, nannies, and siblings.
