#1 Baby Sign Language
Baby sign language may open up the lines of communication with your infant and is a great way to give parents and their baby opportunities to bond. Before beginning to teach a baby sign, parents should familiarize with common signs through the use of books, websites, or specialists. When introducing signs, parents just first start with sings that describe routine, requests, activities and objects in their child’s life. Furthermore, parents should be consistent and these signs as much as possible. Below are some basic sings for parents to teach their baby:

Signing to sleep to your child is a great way to implement a bedtime routine. Also, babies can let their parents know they are tired.
