Usage: Do you really want to teach your baby no? ­čÖé

Seriously, no is a wonderful way for a baby to avoid frustration by enabling them to communicate when they object to something. You can teach no whenever you ask questions to give your baby an option. Say you offer your baby their pacifier and she does not take it. You can then say, “No – you don’t want the pacifier.”
