Every good mother and father knows this instinctively. You teach words along with motions, even if they can't say the words, they can mimic the motions. The key is to be consistant.

From time to time, I see parents in public places who seem to be gesture-deaf, their babies are crying and signing away, but mom has no clue that the motions have meaning.

the more you can communicate with your baby, the more they can learn. Learning builds brain fibers, brain fibers build learning.

wow I never knew that even though a baby cannot verbaly communicate it would be capable to communicate using sign language. its probably easy for the kids but hard for the parents. small kids learn fast. at what age do they start teaching them?

My child is only 9 months and I know some of this already...

like yesterday when he was banging on the bathroom door trying to get in. My wife was taking a shower and he LOVES water! Baths, showers, taps, pools, fish tanks, he doesn't care. heheheh...

I'm starting to learn more, I thought it was intereting that someone put a site with a lot of good information.

yes babies learn visual communcation a lot faster than verbal comms... and if they learn babysigns they tend to pick up verbal comms faster too.... Very Happy
