Title: “Teaching Your Baby the Sign for Poop”

[Opening]
Poop. Did you just go poop?

To do the sign for poop, you put your thumb on a hand in a fist, your other hand is spread, and your thumb goes into the other hand, just like you know what I’m thinking of. And you pull it down just like poop is coming out. Poop.

This will be an easy one to remember. If your baby learns the sign poop, your baby can tell you that they did a poop. Maybe they’re still drinking breast milk and you can’t smell them, they poo, they can let you know. That was the case for my second baby. And also, your baby can tell you that they want to go poop. That can be helpful if they’re a little older and still not talking and you want to potty train with them.

So to teach your baby the sign, whenever you see their eyes watering and they are trying to poop, you can say something like, “Oh, are you pooping?” Or “It looks like you’re pooping.” As you’re consistent, your baby will start to make the association and then start signing.

If you can’t really figure out what your baby’s trying to sign, but they’re making eye contact and you can really tell they’re trying to say something, really try to guess based on the context so you can keep your baby’s confidence up.
