Besides the songs running around and around your head all. day. long., I love these DVDs. (If you use these DVDs, just try getting the songs out of your head.) I love them because C gets a huge kick out of them and because they really do help babies learn sign language!
A small disclaimer: I used to be a huge anti-video/TV watcher. I did not want C to even catch glimpses of the screen when it was on. I guess I was afraid any kind of exposure would contribute to ADD or ADHD. However, after watching this video, I really like that it is slow moving without flashy lights or images that could overstimulate a babe. Any smart mommies out there who want to chime in about all of this?My ever-helpful twin was the first to tell me about these DVDs. She showed them to Baby R during feeding times and now R is an expert on many of the signs! I talked to a few parents in my playgroup and they love the videos, too. Being the ever-cheapskate that I am, I decided to see if they were at the library (who can beat free!?).
Another side note, I love our library system--not only do they have these DVDs, they also havenatural birthing books, infant pottying books and even Christian fiction!Anyway, we found them at the library and have been watching them for the last week! They are due back today so I think I'm going to have to buy some to keep permanently at our house.
