    Baby Sign Language: Milk

    Baby Sign Language: Milk

    The word milk is the first sign that my husband and I started using with our daughter. At almost six months old, she is starting to associate the sign with the meaning. Teach your baby the sign for the word milk in baby sign language with the following description and video. Use your dominant hand to form the signs.

    Baby sign language, baby sign, or baby signing is used by hearing parents with pre-verbal hearing children to improve communication. My baby signs are based on ASL (American Sign Language) signs. Baby signing is distinct from sign language.

    Milk

    Hold the hand by the side of the mouth next to the cheek. Squeeze the fingers and thumb of the hand into a fist in the motion of milking a cow.
