Baby Signing Basics

Baby Signing Basics

Imagine if your baby could communicate their needs so they don't need to get frustrated and cry and you don't have to guess what they want?


Your baby could tell you when he is hungry, wants more, or is all done. If he is too cold or too hot or that he just needs a hug.

The good news is that your baby's motor skills are sufficiently developed to make simple gestures as early as 5 months. This enables them to bridge the communication gap and show you what they need. Baby signing is a wonderful baby led approach that helps you to connect and understand each other from a very early age helping you both avoid unnecessary confusion and frustration.

These classes are truly unique in their structure and ability to adapt to the changing needs of a group. Small people and their needs take no heed of our schedules; we also know that a new environment might be unsettling at first. You are always welcome to support your little one however you need to during class – feeding, pacing, changing, rocking, sleeping or supporting those first wobbly steps that need to be practiced right now! A gentle rhythm underpins all of our baby and toddler signing sessions; this provides little ones with a structure that they can anticipate and feel comfortable to join in with. We know that older babies and toddlers need to move around – and that they will engage with the class, taking it in, no matter how inattentive they may seem to you at the time.
