Signing: To sign water, take your strong hand, extending and separating the three middle fingers (the ASL sign for W). Tap your index finger on your chin.
To remember the sign, it is the ASL sign for W, going near your mouth. W near your mouth is water.
Usage: Once your baby is drinking fluids other than milk, start to teach signs associated with different liquids, so that she can indicate preferences when she is feeling fussy.
