Massage & sign, from bump to baby & beyond

Hushabye Sign

Teach your baby to communicate through a beautiful, visual language, enabling them to communicate even before they can talk. Give them the tools to communicate their needs and develop their speech through song, sensory play and fun activities of engagement with Hushabye Hands.

Our fabulous baby sign classes are packed full of fun, there’s plenty to engage everyone throughout and you get to learn a new life long skill along the way.

We use BSL signs (British Sign Language), there’s a different action packed topic each week and you get handouts to help you at home.

A study of children aged 11 months to 3 years whose parents had taught them to use sign before they could talk, in comparison to a group of children who hadn’t been taught sign language found that ‘the verbal IQ of the signing children were 12 points higher on average than their non-signing peers’. (Acredolo,L. et al, 2000).

There is a lot of research available to evidence the benefits of both baby massage and baby sign and they have many overlapping benefits such as enhancing baby/parent bonding and attachment, communication, confidence, self-esteem, reduction or elimination of behaviour tantrums, ultimately resulting in happy parents and babies.

Parents report that their signing children have fewer tantrums and better social skills and that both the children and the parents are less frustrated’ (Acredolo, L. et al 2002).
