Baby Hands

Wow, the start of another New Year and here's looking forward to some very exciting things all round.

To kick off this year it's time to give you all a chance to get to know me better and get the best answers to your baby signing questions through video!.

  • Your Baby Sign Questions Answered:
    For over two years now I have been running Australian Baby Hands and writing information about baby sign and my articles about baby sign have appeared all over the internet.

    Now I want to try and give you, the readers of my newsletter, something even better in a new online video series through these newsletters.

    Through these videos I'll be answering your questions and offering advice on introducing and using sign language with your baby.

    I'm very excited about using video as a way to help offer an even better service to you and I hope that
    you have some feedback for me on future topics you would like covered.

    email me at with your questions and/or requests for topics that you would like to have covered in this series.

    I look forward to talking to you all soon :-)
  • Your Stories:

I’m so glad baby sign was mentioned to us with our first baby 3 years ago!! It provided us with so many experiences and benefits: emotionally connecting as well as practically getting messages across. Her Nana still raves about the time she baby sat over night (first time for all…) and could communicate with her 1 year old granddaughter so clearly and without frustrations!

I thought I wouldn’t be able to pull baby sign off or have the time/energy to learn it but I must say it’s very easy to incorporate into the daily routine. It gave us so much joy and we’ve now started eagerly with our 6 month old daughter. Her big sister is keen to join in too!
