To sign again, flatten out your leading hand, bend your second hand at a right angle, then tap it against the middle of the palm of your first hand.
Again and more are both often simplified to thumping hands together , and they often blur into one, given their similar meaning.
Again is so similar to more in meaning, that again is not often taught until a baby is more advanced. I will often not teach more and just use it' for the same purpose. If I teach again, then I will tend to make it about experiences - and I will let more be about food. So sign again after the first wave of a tickle attack, before the second wave strikes. "Want to be tickled again?" "Mommy is tickling Baby again."
Teach your baby how to sign again for experiences, like being pushed on a swing or being tickled. Teach the related concept, more, when asking if your baby wants more food or drink.

I am a retired grandma and I am blessed to babysit for my next door neighbors who just had a precious baby boy. He is three months old today. I found your signing very helpful. I learned 5 words today and will use these signs when I care for the baby. I am using the signs now so when he is a few months older he will be able to use them as well. Your site is basic, simply, and you repeat the motion of sign and word a few times. I cannot wait to share these new signs with his mommy and Hayden (the baby). Thank you!
As an Early Interventionist I learned basic signs that I used with the families I worked with. Now as a parent of a 11 month old, I started signing with her at 6 months. She can now sign “all done, more, eat, shoes, drink, bye-bye” she loves to use them knowing that her mommy, daddy, and brother can understand her.
Please tell me if you can see anything on this website \nhttp://vimeo.com/
My youngest is 5 1/2 months old- I started Baby Sign Language with her at 3 1/2 months of age. She watches very closely though she has yet to make a sign. My older daughter is now 5 1/2 and I took her to baby signs class when she was 5 1/2 months old and within a couple of months she was using many of the signs and she was talking fluently before she was a year old. I’m hoping that the same goes true with my baby. Baby Sign language is awesome!
Can’t wait to learn to teach my precious child!
