New Site Launched – finally…!!!

Well we have finally got the new site launched, hooray…!!!!

The good old site which has done so well for the last 4 years was really getting a bit tired and we thought it was about time to redo and refresh the whole look and feel of the site.

There’s a lot more to this new site, including this blog so I’ll be posting regular updates and news on the happenings at Australian Baby Hands for 2009.

A few of the new things that are happening now are the new DVD, set to be released very soon and our new baby sign classes. We will be adding more details to the site on these in the coming weeks but if you would like any information in the meantime please contact us.

Take a look around the new site, there’s still some tidy up work to do so if you do find anything wrong like broken links, or links going to the wrong page I’d really appreciate if you let me know.

I’d love to know what you think so please take your time to have a look and let me know what you think by leaving your comments below.

Happy Signing!

    Hey Jackie,

    Great new site, looks like you have been working hard, well done :-)

    We’re going well, although slowly with Thomas. He gets very excited when I sign milk to him now as he knows that he is about to get a feed.

    Great new look Jackie, love the little baby with the mortar board hat.
    Tai has been signing back milk for three months now and we’re slowly introducing more signs.
    Keep up the good work.

    This is great, you’ve put in so much information.
    The video on the home page is really nice, it’s great to see that you’re a “real person”.
    Congratulations on putting together so much info for everyone.

    We are going really well with our signing thanks Jackie.
    Lachlan’s communication is improving every day it seems and he’s always keen to try and “tell” me something. His favourite at the moment is signing ‘more” all the time when he enjoys something. Thanks for all your help.

    Thanks everyone. I’m glad that you like the new design. :-)

    I’ll be adding some more content over the next few weeks and also some new products to the site as well to help you with your baby signing.

    Happy Signing

    This has been great to use with my Grandkids.
    Thanks Jackie for this wonderful program.

  13. Tracy Says:

    Hi Jackie,

    Great new site. My daughter turned two 3 days ago and is now talking non-stop. She doesn’t sign so much these days as she has a very strong vocabulary which we attribute directly to signing. I highly recommend signing to all new parents!

  14. JackieDurnin Says:

    Hi Tracy,

    Thats great to hear and such a good point for parents who are concerned that using baby sign might delay speech. All the studies show that using baby sign helps to enhance speech and the feedback that we have had from parents over the years has only helped to confirm this.

    Wow! Your updated site looks great – fantastic job!

    I am really keen to join a class or buy a DVD as I am no good with following the pictures in the book. I keep forgetting them or forgetting what some of the symbols mean. I found the AUSLAN SignBank really handy as it has videos of the signs so really easy to follow:

    I am in Springwood, Logan (South Brisbane) so will be keeping an eye on the ‘class locations’ page hoping for a classes to come up there {:)


  16. Nick Says:

    Great new site Jackie, well done.
    Thanks for the info on the classes, hopefully you will have some in Melbourne are soon.

    Hi Jackie,
    Thanks for Emails as I am deaf parent and I communicate AUSLAN with my deaf partner! I can see that my 10 and half months daughter is a bit hand signing seem that she is keen learner. I am sure that she will signing anytime next year!

  18. Gemma Says:

    I thought my son would never start to sign but he started about 4 months ago at 11 months (I had been signing since 5 months) and now he signs all the time.
    Thanks Jackie and congrats on the new site, looks great :-)

    Hi Jackie,
    Would love to teach Baby hands to other keen parents for you. I hope I can help. My daughter Heather turned 2 in October and still uses some of her signs along with her words. She too has a very strong vocab and speaks in 3-4 word sentences these days. I have found the signs invaluable in many different situations. I can still understand her when she is tired and doesn’t want to use her words, when she is frustrated with me because I don’t understand her words or best yet, when we need to be quiet her signs come in very handy. My second daughter, Lydia, is 6 months old now and I can’t wait to see her use her first sign. I am also looking forward to seeing Heather’s reaction as she will be able to understand her too!
    Great new website, very clear and user friendly, thanks.
