How to Watch Our Videos
suggest that you watch the My Baby Can TalkTM videos with your baby several
times each week and at the same time during the day until your baby has learned
all the signs that are of interest to her. Your baby most likely thrives on
routine and she is likely to begin to anticipate watching the videos with you.
Pick a time when your baby is well rested and most playful.
want to consider the time that the video is playing as a time to teach your
baby to sign using the video as a learning tool. The video should be viewed as
a resource to encourage interaction between you and your baby using sign
language. Your baby will look to you to determine how she should interact with
the video. Therefore, if you watch the video, comment on the images and sounds,
point at the images, say the words and make the signs as they are presented
then she is more likely to do the same. Simply put, if you are interested and
having fun with the video then your baby will follow your lead and as a result
she will learn to sign.
are many ways to watch the My Baby Can TalkTM videos with your baby and
our advice is that you try a couple of methods that we have found to be very
useful. One method is to place your baby on your lap and make the signs that
are presented on the video on your baby's body or in front of your baby as each
sign is presented in the video. Another method is to sit next to your baby or
facing your baby and sign on your own body.
