Teach sign language to babies to help them communicate better

December 18, 2017

Baby sign language has become more famous over the last ten years. Earlier, it was taught only to a deaf or hearing impaired child but not anymore.

Baby Reyna uses basic sign language to communicate with her parents and say what she wants. Reyna is not deaf and can hear just fine.

Reyna's parents taught their 15-month daughter basic signs of food, water, light and they are teaching her more specific foods.

Baby sign language helps small kids not to cry or worry and be more calm while expressing their needs and wants.
