12 Month Old Communicates 12 Baby Signs

Published by at 11:49 am under Baby Sign Language

I can not recommend Baby Sign Language highly enough. I have been teaching Emily Baby Sign Language since she was about 9 months old, it is extremely easy to teach. At 10 months she learnt the sign for milk and it was incredible to communicate with her at such a young age. But it was really between 11 and 12 months that Emily’s signing really took off, at this age babies seem to absorb so much and learn so quickly. Once she comprehended that actions could communicate what she wanted she seemed to want to learn more and more signs.

Now at 12 months she has a vocabulary of 12 signs, some of which she also says the word (or the beginning of the word). Her signs include More, Milk, Eat, Sleep, Diaper, Ball, Dog, Finish, Drink, Duck, Bath and Head. These words have helped so much, if Emily is crying and clinging and I do not know what is wrong I ask her to show me with her hands and she will show me that she wants to eat or needs her diaper changed.

The best thing is that any baby can be taught baby sign language, it is simple and easy. It does take a bit of persistence on the part of the parent at the beginning, but once your child gets his or hers first sign all that effort is worth it 10 fold.

You can download an ebook for Baby Sign Language and start signing with your baby now!

    Thank you so much for this article! I will be using it for reference with my customers. Very informative. I didn’t realize you could communicate with babies at such a young age.

    Hi Jen,

    Thanks for your article about how baby signs have helped Emily communicate with you. I too love to rave about how much signing with babies and toddlers help their speech development after having experienced how helpful it is.

    Please could I use the photo of Emily signing more on my page I’ve just written about baby signing (www.clever-toddler-activities.com/baby-signing.html)?

    Thanks, Claire

    Hi Claire,
    Glad to hear that you have had a positive experience with baby sign language too. Thanks for your post. I am sorry but I would prefer you not to copy the photo of Emily signing more to put on your website.
    Thanks
    Jen
