Baby Sign Language

So I have been thinking about teaching Olivia sign language for the past few weeks as Olivia has become more verbal and has started to wave bye bye and clap.So I went onto Baby Sign Language and started to look into what all I needed to know about teaching Olivia to sign. They have flash cards, language charts, and a dictionary of all sorts of sign language stuff! So much information...I love it!
At first I was cautious because I naturally thought that if I taught her to sign that it would delay her talking but actually that is the opposite. Not only do they typically talk first but also even later on in their child years their IQ is higher too!
So my question to you all is did you try baby sign language? If so what is some advice you might have for me? I know I am probably in for some frustration at the beginning but the big point I am going to make is to keep it fun and not let it get to me!

  1. I think you made the best decision for Olivia. I took my nephew to baby signing classes at SignShine and it produced some amazing results. My nephew's vocabulary expanded significantly and he communicates often. I recommend it!

    1. That was my biggest fear is that she wouldn't talk but just sign! But it is so good to know that isn't the case! Thanks!!

  2. I think teaching your kids to sign is a great idea. I personally would just work with all, rather than baby signing, because it's still mostly easy signs, but can be used later in life as a language. I found signings time DVDs super fun and an easy way to learn basic signs.

    1. Yes she has picked up bye bye...which is typical for babies. I have been trying mama and dada and she just laughs at me. I am thinking that may be too much right now so I think I will just try "more" for when she has a little snack!
