To sign warm, hold a loosely closed fist in front of your mouth, then gently move the hand away while opening up your fingers. It is like you're blowing warm air away.
The sign for warm is super useful during the the toddler years. We use it to equip our baby to convey discomfort when the car seat gets too warm, or to help him or her communicate appropriate levels of comfort when taking a bath.
When teaching contrast signs, make sure your baby is learning through comparison. So be sure to teach warm along with cool, hot, and cold.

Could you please recommend a sign for “warm” as a verb, i.e. “warm the milk”, “warm the water”, etc.?
ADMIN – Hi Andrej,
Place your dominant hand in from of your mouth as if you were holding a piece of bread with all five fingers. Pull it away from your mouth and open your fingers as if a flower was blossoming and your fingers are the petals.
