BABY SIGN – TEACH BABIES TO TALK BEFORE THEY CAN TALK

 

Your baby can understand you, but he just can’t answer you yet. However, they are more than capable of communicating with you. Your baby is already using her body language to ‘talk’ with you, why not try taking it a couple steps further?

Our Doula Kyla has a background in Baby Sign and American Sign Language and wholeheartedly believe in the power of teaching babies to sign. Contact her to learn about her upcoming classes.

Studies have shown over and over again that babies who learn to sign will have a head start on speaking, suffer less tantrums, feel less frustrated and feel more understood. You will be able to meet their needs faster and feel less frustrated too! Having conversations with your little one before he says his first word is possible with only a little patience and practice.
