Hi everyone, welcome to this months newsletter

Lots to do and see over 3 days with everything for your baby under one roof so we hope to see you there or at the next expo in your State :)

Monthly Article Section:

What is the recommended age to introduce baby sign? Is it to late if your baby has already started to talk? This month we look at different ages to introduce baby sign and ways to do it.

Check out all the article listings from previous newsletters or the latest blog posts listed on the right.==>

Your Stories:

My thanks to Pam for her story below. A wonderful example of how baby sign can show you what your baby is aware of that you cant see.

"Hi Jackie, Hooray we've had success! I started signing at 6 months and at 12 months Denise had a wonder month - started walking, sprouted more teeth and started signing back.

First sign was bird. We were in the garden and she was signing bird but I couldn't see any birds, then a pigeon hopped out from behind the wall (Denise could see it but I couldn't).

She is also signing milk, duck, mummy and dog. Dog also seems to be used for pretty much every animal or tv character!

Now working on more, kiss, eat/food, drink, fish and story.
It was hard to keep motivated and to remember to sign after the first 2 or 3 months with no result, but it's so much fun now.
