Evesham, Droitwich & Worcester North
Baby signing is a fantastic way to develop communication between you and your baby as babies have control over their hand co ordination a long time before their verbal skills develop. No longer do you need to need to interpret cries or guess what your baby needs, they can tell you themselves! Once you have taught your baby to 'talk' you'll find they have plenty to say!
Signing babies are happy babies as it eases frustrations between parent and baby by developing understanding. Baby signing strengthens the bond between parent and their child and lets you engage in real 'conversations'. So let’s find out what your baby would like to say to you!
