Stop Playing The Guessing Game

When you decide to become a parent, you dream about chubby cheeks, unlimited snuggles, and soft giggles. What we are NOT prepared for is the sleepless nights, obsessive crying and constant ‘guess what I need!’ attitude we receive from our new bundle of joy.

As a mom we are hard-wired to nurture our children in any way we can. So when our baby is upset or frustrated we want to do whatever we can (as quick as we can) to solve the problem.

The first thing we do is work through the most likely solutions…

We feed them, change them, rock them, rub their back… find them a toy, read a book, take them for a walk or put them down for a nap… whewwww! That’s exhausting.

After a while we figure out the problem (or at least we think we have since the crying has stopped). But, it often takes several tries to get it right and in the meantime your baby is getting more upset, and YOU are getting FRUSTRATED!

WHY? because we are guessing at what our child wants and we often get it wrong.

By the time you go through the 10-step process to solve your child’s problem you feel exhausted and tired.

What you would like to feel is confident and satisfied that you were able to provide the best solution.

That’s where baby sign language comes in.

Baby sign language provides you with an easy way to understand your baby’s cues without having to play the guessing game.

All babies have the ability to make simple hand signs before they are able to talk. You’ve seen it – everytime a baby waves ‘bye-bye’ or blows a kiss!

Your child will happily sign to you rather than cry or throw a tantrum.

But don’t take my word for it. Click here to check out our success stories.

  • Love being able to communicate with my toddler in sign language. We started when he was 6 months and it was our first way of communicating. Now he mixes them and we get lazy, but we have a desire to keep it up because we can see how useful this is to have when they struggle to communicate with their words.
