Your baby can communicate way before they can speak but learning how their speech development progresses can help lead to an understanding of whats going on in their world. Read my latest article on Baby Speech Development and steps you can take to communicate more easily with your little one.

Your Stories:

The best thing about Australian Baby Hands are the amazing stories I receive every week. Narrelle Mannaerts wonderful story shows how clearly babies can think and communicate if they just have the right tools.

"Hi, I just wanted to share a story.

I first discovered baby sign language when i was visiting a friend and her baby was in the high chair signing “more food”.

I was very impressed so we bought the baby hands books and charts and started teaching my baby sign language when he was 9 months old.

One day when he was 12 months old I went to collect him from kindy. Normally his 11 year old brother comes along to collect him but on this particular day he didn’t come. When I arrived bubby looked at me and signed “Mum Where’s Brother”. I was so amazed, I would never of known he was thinking that without sign language.

He is now 16 Months old and can sign 20+ words. Often he will sign something and I think wow I didn’t know he was thinking that."
