SIGN LANGUAGE

This is the sign for “more”. This is one of the first they usually master and will associate it using it at mealtimes and then progress to using it throughout their day to help them get needs and wants met a little easier.

WHAT ABOUT...

Tips to help babies sleep through the night – put them to bed drowsy but awake, have a consistent, calming bedtime routine (catch them before they get overtired and have a clearly defined end point when you leave the room), give them time to settle down, and keep late night care low key (dim lights, calm voice, and calm movements). A little time and patience will help your little one start finding their groove and sleep through the night in no time!

Fun fact about babies – a baby’s eyes are about 75% of their adult size but their vision is about 20/400 and won’t become 20/20 until about 6 months.
