    Is there a way to help my daughter distinguish between “sorry” and “please”? She’s only 10 months and even though she doesn’t do “please” correctly, (baby sign language babble- she swipes her chest, sometimes with both hands simultaneously) when I did the “sorry” sign she just looked confused and replied with “please”.
    Thanks so much for your website, such a great tool for us and has helped my daughter be less frustrated when trying to communicate as well as helping with learning 2 languages at once .

    ADMIN – Hi Alicia,

    You could exaggerate the gesture or incorporate facial expression.

    It is awesome that you have videos available to teach the signs. Sometimes I just can’t get it straight from the pictures and descriptions. Very smart, very helpful, thank you so much!
