*Signing will help you learn more about your baby and see into their thoughts and personality. Getting down on your baby’s level and actively engaging with them in this way is a great bonding experience for you both.
*Teaching a baby to sign has remarkable social and emotional benefits. Signing also makes learning to talk easier and stimulates intellectual development.
*Early exposure to signing helps babies develop their language and reasoning skills. While other babies are still crying and yelling to get what they want, signing babies are learning how to communicate with words and simple phrases. This helps reduce tears, tantrums and frustrations.
