Baby Signing - what's it all about?

Helping babies communicate before speech
We all gesture. Every day. It's part of how we communicate and express ourselves. Baby signing builds on this natural ability to link gestures with words and meaning.
Babies show an amazing ability to understand and recognise the world around them from an early age.
However, nature does not give the gift of speech at that same young age to enable a baby to express their thoughts, feelings and needs. That's why babies try other methods to make you understand - cry, grizzle, point, make a noise, throw a tantrum.
It doesn't have to be like that - if you sign with your child you will give them the gift of early CLEAR and CALM communication. And Little Bear has found that a happy baby leads to a happy parent!
