Signing: The thirsty sign is made by extending your index finger and moving it down from your chin to your tummy. It is like you are tracing the path of the water going down into your stomach.

Usage: You can teach the thirsty sign to your baby so she can tell you when she wants a drink. To teach thirsty, make the sign before you give your baby a drink. Although, we prefer using the baby sign for drink, it is a bit more intuitive and easier to remember.
