Teach up by pointing at things that are above your baby's field of vision. It is often useful to teach down at the same time, because the two signs are complementary.
We use the sign for up when we introduce toddlers and babies to the concept of having Mommy or Daddy pick them up, or when pointing to an object. When teaching the sign for up, contrast it by introducing baby to the sign for down.
