Hi Jenny,
So glad to know that you are doing better now! Just in case you happen to have another child, or for anyone struggling with their infant, many parents are now using sign language with their babies. My brother and his wife used it with their three children, and I have never seen such happy babies! They get to communicate without throwing screaming fits, and the parents get to know what the baby is thinking and feeling. So much frustration is eliminated by giving your baby a means to communicate before they are able to speak!

Good luck and keep us informed!
