Baby Sing and Sign

You may of all heard of Baby Sing and Sign. I had. This was never something I had really thought about before, and never really considered as an option for Leo and I. I don't know what changed? But the whole idea of baby signing now seems like a very attractive idea.

I know that it will take some work, and it may be months before Leo shows any understanding with the signs. The thought of being able to understand each other on a whole new level and maybe even take away some of the frustration when he can't make me understand what he wants, is worth it's weight in Gold.

In the long run I believe that baby signing will be immensely helpful to both Leo and I. It will open a window that would otherwise stay closed until he could talk. I think that it may even enhance his early vocabulary, and give him a greater understanding. Leo is only 8 months old so there is plenty of time for words and talking, but I think the whole sing and sign will give us some real bonding time.

I am willing to give it all a try!

Last night I decided to research local classes that I could possibly attend with Leo. I found the Baby Sing and Sign class that is local to us, and as luck would have it it's only about 25 minutes away. The cost for a term is also very reasonable at only £55.00. I signed us up straight away and we start on April 24th 2012.

I have now downloaded the official Sing and Sign baby app, and intend to start using it to teach Leo and I a few simple signs, to see if we can learn a couple together before we start our classes.

I would love to hear from Mum's and Dad's who have used signing with their baby and been successful? Advice would be greatly welcome.

I would love to know how you implemented the signs and gained a mutual understanding with your little one?

Wish us luck. We will start signing tomorrow!

I will leave you with some benefits to signing with your baby, chalked up by the lovely people over at Sing and Sign:

What are the benefits of Sing and Sign?
  • Helping to understand your baby's needs, thoughts and ideas
  • Reducing frustration (for baby and parent!)
  • Enhancing early vocabulary and understanding
  • Encouraging the development of speech
  • Enriching your baby's relationships
  • Building confidence and self-esteem
  • Stimulating your baby's intellectual and emotional development
The benefits of signing with your baby are potentially significant. Interesting research is ongoing into the effect of baby signing on the development of a baby's brain. In the earliest years of life, babies brains are 'wiring' themselves through their experiences. While using signs, parents say accompanying words and tend to give greater language input. Signing babies can communicate complex things earlier, many experts suggest this stimulates brain development and enhances the building of brain circuitry
