    I have heard that sign language training for babies as early as 4 months would help the new parents a great deal. And when they are about seven to nine months old, they will be able to sign back which would be helpful for the parents.
    There are a lot of sign-language aids available today like flashcards and DVD’s. I have a three month-old infant, I was thinking about training my little one.
    Any experiences, ideas or opinions?

    I think it is a great way to communicate with babies, especially for new parents. I have used the sign language training with both my kids. I started teaching them as early as five months. Once they are ready they will start to sign back. I used very basic signs like More, Done, Sleep, Hungry and Change.

    More:
    I taught my babies to open their fingers keep the palms up.

    Done:
    I taught them to flip open hands upside down.

    Sleep:
    Close the eyes and keep the hands in “Namaste” position.

    Hungry:
    Make circular motion with hand on the belly.

    Change:
    Point to the diaper to say that they need a change right now.

    All the best.
