Why sign with your baby? Signing with babies — is it the new fad? Something only power moms who want superbabies do? A sure-fire way to form a speech delay?
You may already know that the answer to all of the above questions is a resounding NO.
People have been signing with their babies for years, even well before it became a popular communication technique. The most common reason for doing so is an intense desire on the part of a parent or caregiver to find out exactly what is going on in a baby’s mind — what does she need? What does she want? What does she observe? What does she think about and remember?
