The bandage sign is also used for band-aid. To teach the sign, wait till they have a band-aid, then point at the band-aid and make the sign. Since band-aids are a favorite accessory for many fashion-forward babies, this sign is a highly motivating sign, and your baby usually catches on to this one quickly … so be sure to have plenty of spares in your medicine cabinet!
The sign for bandage is helpful when your baby begins to discover a variety of objects related to health. Introduce bandage to a toddler by purchasing colorful, themed child-friendly bandages and using the bandage on yourself and the baby to tackle small scrapes and cuts.
