Clothes is signed by taking both open number 5 hands and touching your thumbs to your shoulders as you brush your hands down the chest a couple times.
Teaching the sign for clothes helps you prepare your baby when you dress them. You can also use the sign to talk about other people's clothes or their doll's clothes. You can extend the sign by using it in conjunction with colors. For example, blue clothes or pink clothes. As your toddler gets more advanced, you can also move from the general word clothes to more specific words, like jacket.
Teach your baby the sign for clothes by using it daily when helping your little one get dressed. Once he or she grasps the concept, you can further expand their vocabulary by teaching specific clothing items like shirt or dress.

I love your website. My daughter and I are learning a lot! I am curious about how to sign my daughters name instead of spelling it out. Her name is Avery.
ADMIN – Hi Veronica,
Why don’t you try the sign for baby plus the letter A?
