In contrast, you’ll be on the lookout for baby creations. 9. Be Patient The younger your baby is when you begin signing, the longer it will take her to start using signs herself. In addition, as we discuss below, all children learn at their own pace. (See “Differences Among Babies” on page 46). It can often take a month or longer before your baby starts using signs. The rewards of having this rich way of communicating are well worth the w ­ ait. In children’s development, whether walking or talking, everything takes time.

Remember, babies have their own interests, motivations, and timetables. Some babies begin to use both signs and words during their first year and continue to develop lots of each at about the same rate. Others learn signs early and rely on them heavily until they develop words months later. Still other babies develop only a few signs but let go quickly even of these because they are learning new words so fast that they don’t need the help of their signs for very long. Finally, some babies, especially those more interested in motor challenges, take longer learning both signs and words and rely on both until late in their second year to meet their communication needs.
