Hey y’all. It’s Jess again. I am about to share a little bit of my love for languages, specifically baby sign language, with you so take a seat because it’s going to be fun!
Baby Sign Language: A fun and different way to communicate with your baby
For years, we have been told that babies that learn to communicate with a combination of speech and gesture may develop larger spoken vocabularies. While this has not been proven true, it does help!
When our babies “sign” (it’s in “ “ because often babies signing doesn’t look like what you expect it to) it is met with great enthusiasm and more often than not, parents respond with a myriad of questions such as “do you want more food?” “are you still hungry” and so on. All of this is shown to create a more secure attachment between parents and babies and to allow for more learning opportunities.
This all sounds amazing but HOW DO YOU EVEN DO IT? Don’t worry mamas and papas, I got you.
