When it comes to learning baby signs and teaching them to your babies, you have to be a little organized. You should not teach your baby the words and their signs randomly. In fact, you should be focusing on the most important baby sign language words first. The first words that you want your baby to learn include eat, drink, milk, mam, papa, etc.
These are the words that your baby should know first because he/she will need it on a daily basis. Yes, you can teach your kids about the many types of animals as well but they are not as important in the beginning as the words stated above. Another words you want to teach your baby with its sign is more i.e. when your baby wants more of something.
It is important for you as a parent to understand the importance of different signs even if they are for similar actions. For example, if you don’t teach your baby the different signs, you might not be able to differentiate between a sign for drinking water and milk. How can your baby tell you that it wants water or milk?
Of course, you will have to teach him/her the two different signs that have to be used for the two different types of drinks. The baby should also know when he/she is done drinking or wants more. In addition to your baby knowing the signs, you also have to ensure that you memorize all the signs perfectly to know what your baby is asking for.
