Having three kids, I’ve no doubt heard about baby sign language. I did try to use some obvious signs with my kids while saying the word at the same time. I guess I didn’t force it enough since my younger two (I wasn’t familiar with it when I was a new mom — had enough problems trying to figure out how to take care of a baby without directions) never used their hands to communicate. Eric and Kat are having a good experience teaching sign language to their daughter who knows over 200 words. I think it’s wonderful.
