Baby Sign Language

sLesTa

Written by Alison Mackonochie, this book was my go-to book for the basic knowledge of applying baby sign language.  

Years ago before I got pregnant, I came across a TV program about baby sign language.  It was very interesting to me and it kept on my mind that I want to apply it whenever I have a baby.  So when I found out I was pregnant, this book was the first one I picked up on the bookstore and started learning all the basics of the sign language.  

When Naia was born, I did practice the sign language with her.  I requested everyone to do that with her so the signing is consistent.  It worked cuz Naia started to sign back a little.  Then, too many people were around her (read: grandparents) and they were not consistently signing to her.  So she got confused and stopped signing.  We stopped too but by then, she already started to talk and let us know what she wants by telling us with her baby language.  

Nonetheless, this book really helps me learning about the baby sign language and I totally recommend it to all urban mamas (and papas) who want to teach your baby to sign.  

The book has all the necessary things you need to prepare yourself and your baby to start signing.  It also has pictures on how to sign the basic instructions.  Truly helpful!

    gue blum pernah denger konsep signing ke anak sama sekali… coba tau waktu sebelum aina lahir. pengen banget dicoba.

    naia berenti signing umur berapa, shin? trus ngaruh ga ama ngomongnya, maksudnya, jadi males ngomong ga?

    thalia – the trick about signing is that the parents and people around her has to do it consistently. dan tiap signing, mesti di spell out, jadi dia juga belajar apa bunyi dari yang di sign. jadi dia ga bakal discourage untuk ngomong. naia mulai gue ajarin signing dr umur 6 bulan, tapi dia baru sign balik setelah 9 bulan..

    I’ve heard of this walaupun ngga pernah di praktekin. I heard it really works. It’s a bit too late now sih since Ayla’s 3 and all.
