Pee

The sign for pee (as in needing to urinate), is made by tapping the ASL sign for the letter 'P' on your nose, as if you are discreetly asking your baby if they need to go to the potty.

Sign the letter 'P' by making your dominant hand into a fist, with you pointer finger up and your middle finger extended at a 90-degree angle. Then tap your middle finger on your nose.

SIGN USAGE

Starting to communicate with your baby about when they are about to pee and poop is an important first step to potty training. Begin by making the sign every time they pee, and gradually they will start making the sign every time they are starting to feel the need to pee.

Flash Card

Pee is best initially introduced in the real-life situation, but adding the flash card will help your baby generalize - and can help overcome the problem of your baby only learning to make the sign after the event!

      Hi Joanna,

      Don’t worry about it. Depending on how young your son is, his motor skills may be taking some time to enable him to make this (or any other) sign. So just keep reinforcing the sign by saying it, making the sign, and encouraging him to mimic you when the situation arises. He’ll catch up. Also, if you notice any semblance of the sign – albeit a poor approximation – encourage him by telling him he’s doing a good job. Let the cheer in the sound of your voice and your facial expression convey your pride in his effort, and that will encourage him more to keep signing with you.
