The more we repeat a sign, the better chance that our tinybeans will connect the visual sign and verbal word to the idea or item.
That’s why, when we’re first introducing baby sign language to our little ones, it helps to focus on signs for objects that we see a lot.
For example, a great first sign is ‘HAT.’ It’s something we often wear, see frequently in books and it’s a super easy sign to make.
Just keep your hand flat and tap the top of your head a couple of times while you say the word out loud.
With enough time and consistency, you’ll likely start seeing your baby start tapping their head too. ☺
