I started teaching my ds because of the bad luck I had with dd as a baby. When my dd was a baby I had such a hard time understanding what she needed or wanted. There were days that were so frustrating I wanted to cry and she was crying. When I was pregnant with ds, I heard all about baby signing, so I decided to give it a try. I absolutely loved it. It took alot of guess work out of things when he wanted or needed something and wasn't able to talk yet. Now I will admit, that I believe it slowed down his talking a little bit. By the time he was a year old, he was signing 30+ words, and could say probably 8-10, but always chose to sign not talk. He prefered signing to talking until he was about 2.5 then I kind of forced him to talk by not acknowledging his signs instead making him use the words. Worked great, about a month later he exploded with talking. But all that being said, I will do it again with this baby. It is a HUGE destresser when babies are wanting more than can express,

My 6 yr old Daughter has Down Syndrome it helped us out to know what she wanted she could not talk that well but since we got the tubes in her ears she speaks more clear , The signing is till great to know at a young age to no what your child needs and wants.

I started with Natalie because my sister did it with her last baby and I was amazed how much he understood. I kick myself that I didn't do it with my other kids.
