I found one source which suggested pinching your fingers together at waist level (ala pins) but most sites say to use the sign for change. I did both and DS quickly picked up the change sign (although when he did it, it didn't look like "change") <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

The book that we have suggests patting your hip.

This is the sign that I used with deaf adults. Pointer & middle finger tapping thumb, kind of like a pinch.<br><br>
But, really any sign would work - as long as you are not planning on having your DC use the signs to communicate with deaf people who use ASL.

we use the ASL sign of "pinching" the thumb & forefinger together. dd's version is closer to patting her hips.

We use "toilet." You make the "t" sign and shake your hand back and forth. I guess we'll use the same one for potty when it comes to it. Haven't really thought about it.<br><br><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/baby.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="baby">boy:
