Common Questions

Give everyone a copy of the book Sign Me Up for a Happy Home (wink-wink) But seriously. Meet up with your baby’s caregivers, decide which signs are most important for your baby, model how to do the sign for everyone, have them do it, and agree to all “sign and say” the word when they care for your child. You’re likely to be surprised at how quickly your baby will pick it up when they see it modeled over and over again!
