    I’m starting to teach my baby sign language at a very early age (she’s 11 weeks) she absolutely hates having an unclean diaper, so we are teaching this as one of the first 5 primary signs. My question is, with babies limited motor skills which will be easier for her to learn… “diaper” or “wet”?

    ADMIN – Hi Brandi,

    I would go with diaper, it is very simple, just pinching together the fingers and thumb, and is a very natural movement. Wet is a little more complex, because it involves moving the arm and fingers, and is a less natural movement.
