Babies are smart, paying attention to the whole world around them in their first few months of life. Babies are very smart, and they’re constantly taking in the views of the world around them for their first few months of life. No matter what you think, their first few months of life involve them paying attention to the world around them. Of course, when they speak in their tiny little voices – tiny because their underdeveloped vocal chords – they’re trying to tell you something. What kinds of something?
Mommy, I’m alone, and I need you! I’m so hungry! Feed me! Mommy, I’ve got a surprise in my diaper, and I need you to change me.
Of course, all you, as the parent, hear is WAH! When they reach six-to-eight months of age, you’re able to teach them the important communication, so you understand what they’re trying to convey to you. Most parents claim it’s no big deal because all babies eat and poop. They look forward with anticipation to when their baby becomes a toddler.
Spending a few minutes of each day will provide you with the ability to decipher what those cries and whines are coming from your baby. For new parents, this is great news! You can eventually teach your wee one baby sign language – simple gestures and signs – that lets you know what they’re trying to tell you. Baby sign language is not unlike ASL because it provides you another communication path to understanding your little one. Baby sign language is a winner for two reasons: You learn what your baby really wants and needs (no more guessing). Your baby won’t feel so stressed out because you do not understand them. What could be better than that?!
