What is Baby Signing?

At 6 months babies are capable of understanding and communicating but their ability to speak doesn't develop till they're 12 to 18 months.  That's where the signs come in.  From as early as 6 months, babies can make signs to let you know what they're thinking.  So the earlier you start, the earlier you can "talk" to your baby.  In Britain a variant called British Sign Language (BSL) is used.  It's simple to learn a few signs to start with and then build up your repetoire as your baby progresses.
