To sign stand, we hold up our non-dominant hand flat, and we position our dominant hand's index and middle fingers on top of the non-dominant palm, as if they are the two legs of a person standing.
We use stand in contrast with the sign for sit. Many parents use it during church, when the service is liturgical .
The best way to teach our babies the sign for stand is by contrasting it with sit.
