To sign pear, extend the fingers on your non-dominant hand and touch them to tip of your thumb, positioning the hand so the fingers are pointing upward. Then take your dominant hand, form the same flat 'O' hand with all fingers touching, and cover your other hand. Finally, slide your strong hand up and over the weak hand.
The sign looks a little like your non-dominant hand is a pear, while your dominant hand is outlining the pear.
If your baby likes eating bits of cut up fruit like a pear, it is a great time to start using the sign. Being able to make the sign will start to give your baby a bit more choice over what they eat, which can reduce fussiness.
