I love to go to different places and spread the baby signing word. only last week I was at a post natal group and some had never heard of baby signing and were confused but I completely converted them.
I show the families a few starter signs that they can practice at home with their baby. it also consists of nursery rhymes and action songs and instruments too. Depending if I have an audience of toddlers or young babies I will adapt the session.
in TinyTalk we encourage movement for the baby as this aids muscle development and also holds their attention, depending on age is how gentle one might be when holding up high etc as with a new born one would be very gentle, with a toddler it would be different.
These sessions that are done at various venues helps people learn about communicating with their baby before they can talk using simple signs and gestures.
I really enjoy seeing the happy babies and mums.
Why not see if there is a baby signing class near you and see if there is a session you can trial. If you live in the UK a TinyTalk bany signing teacher will be more than happy.
One thing I like myself is to use the countries signing system so for example TinyTalk only use signs from BSL with exception for milk, milk in BSL is using both hands in a up and down motion and a baby is able to sign the ASL version and because it is vital for a baby to survive and usually a first sign we use that.
So do have s look into it.
I hope that had helped and I really want to upload a clip very soon.Heather
