“The difference a few simple signs (like Milk, Food and More) made were amazing.
His little face would light up every time I knew what he meant.”
babysigning Mummy, Lorraine.
Babysigning | The Ultimate Parenting Hack?
We think so. Signing helps even very small children to feel capable, connected and confident in communicating what they need. It is almost magical in its simplicity and even very young children have the gross motor skills to make simple signs to tell you what they need, want or love, even though they can’t yet speak.
Did you know that using babysigning could prevent up to 90% of baby tears and toddler tantrums? (It’s true!)

“Engaging, interactive, fun and informative.
[baby] signing really has given my boy a voice before he can speak.
And some of the proudest Mummy moments when he learns a new sign!”
babysigning Mummy, Krista.
Seeing is believing! | Alex signing Milk
Little Alex proudly shows us his amazing signing in this short video clip. He was just 6 months when this was recorded, using the sign for Milk.
He brings attention to himself at the same time, by making a little sound. In time this will be replaced by the M M sound and then the word Milk itself. But before he can do this, Alex has let his mummy know what he needs.
Can you believe how calm and content he is? Alex knows that he will be understood – without tears or going through the ‘What’s Up With Baby?’ checklist!
“We have both loved learning sign language, it’s the best thing ever! It has exceeded my expectations and I will definitely do it again if I have another baby. It makes such a difference to both of us. I can’t recommend it highly enough.”

Join us in exploring the magical world of babysigning for yourself.
But what is babysigning?
Motor skills develop earlier than the ability to speak with meaning. This means that little children are able to make clear gestures months before they are able to speak properly. Gesture is a completely normal part of speech development and when this natural inclination to use your hands is developed, using babysigning, it allows little ones to express their needs clearly and effectively – without tears.
The outcomes? Babies are happier, toddler stress and distress are reduced and pre-schoolers have their emerging language supported. Parents have an incredible shortcut to understanding immediately what is needed by their small person and, as a result, everyone is calmer and more content.
It sounds like an impossible dream. But for us and for thousands of parents that we have the delight of teaching every year, it is the most magical of dreams come true.
How will babysigning help me?
Babysigning prevents upset, tantrums and misunderstandings by a staggering 90%!!
Can you imagine knowing for sure that your baby needed some milk? Or that your toddler was sad because they missed you when you were at work (and so you could provide the very best type of reassurance, specific to their worries?)
Babysigning does that. It gives pre-verbal little ones a big voice in a busy world. It helps you by removing the guesswork so you can understand exactly what your little one needs, wants and provides an incredible window into their world.
When can we start - and who is it for?
Babysigning is for everyone! Families, early years, grannies and grandpa’s, friends and acquaintances. It doesn’t matter if you have used sign language before or not, and although it is used extensively in the deaf community, more and more research is showing just how amazing signing is for everyone.

“I’ve noticed a massive leap in Iris’ development.
She communicates more easily to tell me what she wants in everyday situations – meaning less frustration for us both. We LOVE signing and singing our favourite songs (and learning new ones).
We love baby sign so much… the whole family now do it too!”
babysigning Mummy, Lizzie.
