Great DVD for young toddlers

I will start this post by saying I am very anti-TV. B didn't watch TV until he was almost 2 and then it was only Veggietales movies.

Baby Boy is a signing baby. Catherine at Evolving Mommy's daughter is also a signing baby, along with some babies I have worked with at church. I have loved being able to communicate with him effectively and teaching him some additional signs.

Catherine recommended the "My Baby Can Talk" DVD's. I was skeptical about a 16 month old watching TV but figured baby sign language was educational and learning more signs was good for him. I have now checked out all three "My Baby Can Talk" DVD's from the library and Baby Boy loves them!

If you have a signing baby or young toddler I highly recommend these DVD's.

If you have a young baby and you have considered signing with your baby I would also highly recommend it. You won't regret it!

I am with you on the signing! L watches only Go, Diego, Go, and he's actually learned A LOT of language from it.

We started with a Talking Hands DVD, but after looking around, discovered Signing Time. It is very comprehensive and not boring or hard for parents to watch over and over again.

I love that Charlotte can use her hands to communicate us where words would otherwise go unsaid. It has helped calm a lot of tantrums before they even start! I recently posted a video of some of the 60-70 signs she now knows because of the Signing Time DVDs.

I am so glad you like the videos. I agree with Jennifer, Signing time is also a good series.
