Baby sign

Banana
 Looks like your finger is a banana and you are peeling it. To start, take your weak hand and make a fist with your index finger pointing up. With your strong hand, make a peeling motion down the pointed finger.
 Bath
 Make a fist out of your two hands, then moving the fists vertically up and down your chest. The sign looks a lot like someone scrubbing themselves with both hands, as if taking a very efficient bath
 Bed
Put your two hands together, palm-to-palm. Then place your hands on an angle by the side of your head, and rest your head on your hands as if they were a pillow.
 Blanket
 Both hands with your fingers extended and thumbs tucked under. Start with your palms facing your body and down low, then pull your hands up to chest level.


Book
put your hands together, palm-to-palm. Then holding your pinkies together, open up your hands as if opening up a book.

Diaper
Taking your hands and placing them down around your waist. Take your index fingers and middle finger together from each hand and tap them on your thumbs. Lots of people will do the sign a bit higher up on the body if necessary for baby to see it properly.

Doctor
 Take your strong hand and touch it to the wrist of your weak hand. It is like you are taking a pulse.
 Mommy
Extend and spread your fingers apart, with your pinkie facing forward tap your thumb on your chin.

No
The sign looks like a mouth saying no. Take your index finger together with your middle finger and tap them together with your thumb.
 Sister
Extend your thumb and index fingers on both hands, take your strong hand and start with your thumb under your jaw. Then move the strong hand and tap it down on top of your weak hand.
 Thank you
Extend your fingers and thumb, touch you fingers to your chin and bring your fingers forward.
Tired
Extend your fingers and hold them together, start with your fingers touching your chest, with your elbows up. Drop your elbows down. It is as if you are so tired you cannot keep holding your arms up.
 Toy
Make your two hands into a fist and tuck your thumb up between your index finger and middle finger. Twist your hands back and forth to make the sign.

Taking your index finger and aiming it skyward. Raise and lower your arm so it is like you are pointing up at the sky.
