I have several babies I watch during the week and we have taught them sign language. It is so fun to see them actually being able to communicate with us before they learn to talk. I really think it is a great idea to teach infants how to sign. It keeps them from being frustrated when they are trying to tell you something. I have had very good success with several of my kids,and the parents really like it too b/c they can talk to their kids easier without the guessing game. Some of the signs we teach them are eat, more, please, thank you. These seem very basic but you would be amazed at how much this helps out adults understanding what the child wants.
