I see on you tube there are babies as young as 3 months signing to have thier diaper changed. My son is 2 months (well 10 weeks) and I show him signs and sing some songs but I'm not sure if hes too young, or how old he will be before he starts to sign back. He kind of just shakes his fists now.
I don't think they are ever too young to start! It may just take awhile before he starts signing back. I read you should start by 6 months but I think the earlier, the better! Just make sure you're consistent.
I read that if you start from birth, they may sign back what you sign to them by 6 months old. 6 months is a recommended start age, but it will take them 2-3 months to start signing back, so why not start right away...
My baby signed to me from birth without me teaching anything. She signed "hug me", and then, when she was a couple months old, she signed "eat".
