Anyone in the UK do sign language with baby?

My dh is British, but we live in the States. One of his cousins and his wife are deaf and use British sign language. So, when it came to thinking about doing sign with our baby, I thought it would be more useful to do British so that she (and we) could communicate (even in a small way) with part of our family.

Obviously we can't take a class, but does anyone have any other resources?

Thanks!

I got this book for my dd which uses BSL and has the most common signs you would need for communicating with baby, and lots of drawings of babies that was a big plus for my dd because she loves babies.

Be a little careful, as British Sign Language has its own grammar very different to spoken english.

Sign-along is great for babies and uses the same grammar,

also makaton.
