To sign nervous, make sure that your hand gestures are matched by your facial expression. With your hands out in front of you, palms facing each other, shake your hands. The sign looks like you are nervous or anxious.
When you see your baby nervous about some upcoming event, like a visit to the doctor or going down a slide at the playground for the first time, you can talk about being nervous. Naming this kind of emotion is useful to baby because it shows your baby that you understand, and it lets them communicate when they are uncomfortable with a situation.
Helping your baby to name an emotion like being nervous will help them become more comfortable when they have that emotion instead of having to keep it inside.
