No matter if you are a first time parent or a parent for the 10th time, baby sign language can benefit you and can strengthen the bond between you and your baby, making parenting less stressful.

Since launching Australian Baby Hands over two years ago I have had hundreds of wonderful stories from parents and childcare professionals.

My name is Jackie Durnin; I became involved in baby sign language through my love of sign language. After studying sign language in both Ireland and Australia, I came across the use of sign language with babies and more than two decades of research supporting its benefits. (More on the research into baby sign language).

I also witnessed and heard my friends tell me how their inability to know what was wrong with their baby all the time was frustrating and heart wrenching. I realized that there had to be a better way for both parents and babies. As a result, Australian Baby Hands was born.

Why Use Australian Baby Hands Products?

Australian Baby Hands products have been developed using the national sign language of Australia, Auslan. Currently Australian Baby Hands are the only accredited Auslan baby signing products in the country! Read more information on Australian Baby Hands accreditation.

The main reasons why so many parents and childcare centre's use Australian Baby Hands are the following:

Charlotte signs Please Charlotte signs "Please"

My daughter Charlottes signing just gets better every week and I love being able to communicate with her so easily.

She is 16 months old and we have been signing for about the last 6 months thru our day care centre.

I try to introduce a new word every week last week we have been using the word Car for every morning when we go to hop in it. They have started using more words in her room at day care too so it all helps.

My sister in law was a sceptic but when she visited at Christmas and saw with her own eyes she was amazed by it.

We now use about 8 words and her toilet training has started with the "POO" sign so every time she comes and tells us and on the potty we go, excellent!"

"I would like to thank you for your ingenious signing program.

My 2 year old son, Jesse, has picked it up with such ease and it is such a wonderful sight when he comes up to me and tells me both spoken and signing that he wants to have a bath, or a drink, or play with the dogs, cat, birds.

It is breath taking and such a contrast to 6 months ago when he would be crying, yelling and so upset because as hard as we tried, we just could not comprehend what he was asking for.

I am just 6 weeks away from having my second son and we will be using our signs from the first day in hospital to get into the routine. We only wished that we had of heard of this fantastic program when we were pregnant with our first beautiful son.

Thanks again, you have improve our communication with our son a million times over!!!!!"
