Usage: Hot is a useful intermediate sign to teach baby when they starting eating more independently. Babies will often not fully understand the laws of thermodynamics and put hot foods in their mouth. When your baby puts something a little too hot in their mouth or hand, make the sign and wince a little to help them learn the sign.

    I came across your website in my search for baby sign language to use with my fourth baby. I did not use it or even really know about baby sign language with the other three but I heard from a friend it was great to be able to communicate with your baby from a very early age. I love it! My daughter is six months old and I am able to sign things to her already. Thank you for this great tool and for making it so user friendly! A will definitely recommend thus site.

    I’m a retired Sp Ed teacher. I am so grateful for your dictionary. I am referring mommies that I help. You helped a mom with twins (one deaf) to communicate with them. She had severe post-partum and was giving up. I truly believe you saved her sanity, if not her life. It was that bad for her. Thank you so much. Mommies are requesting your series to learn by. If toddlers are difficult, they know teenagers will be impossible!!
