3 of the families I used to nanny for used baby sign... the mom's didn't have a lot of time to teach me, but often the older child (who was 3 or older in each family) would tell me what the baby was signing. I eventually got some books (1 on baby sign and 1 on ASL) and taught myself the signs that the kids used most often. Now it is pure habit that I sign with whatever words I am saying. I plan on using sign with my own children. I dont have any set plans on how many signs I will teach them, but the basic 5-10 i'm sure will just be habit from me.
