Baby Sign Language: Meal Time Signs

Meal time will no longer be a guessing game with these signs. Special thanks to Melissa van Wijk, Founder of Signing Up (SigningUpLLC).


[MUSIC] Some key things to keep in mind when you are signing with your child is, first of all, to make eye contact and hold their gaze. And secondly, to hold your hands in their line of sight. So they can actually see you. And see the sign when you're signing to them. The sign for eat, or food, it's the same sign, you bring a hand to your mouth. Food, or eat. The sign for drink, you mimic a cup, and you bring that to your mouth. Drink. Drink. Then the sign for more, you pinch all your fingers together, and you tap your hands. More. For almost all babies, this is their first sign. More. And then the sign for all done or finished. You bring your hands away from your body. It's like a twist of your wrists. All done, or finished.
