Real sign language. You teach your baby basic signs so that they can communicate prior to their language skills coming in. Apparently babies who are taught this are MUCH happier because they are able to learn these signs easier and quicker than spoken words. So they can communicate what they need to at an earlier age.
They are happier babies because they don't need to whine or cry when they need something, they can communicate it to them. You can start using the signs to them immediately,,,,, some babies have used it by 8 months. I figure the sooner you start the sooner they will catch on.
