You're the best, Laura. And it meets such a need. I'm a grandmother to two daughter-in-laws who are signing some with their youngsters. I work on it here with them. It is such fun--and so helpful for the children--and the moms and others--to communicate.

Thank you! Ann

My daughter and I have been watching these videos religiously on YouTube and we finally decided to expand our lessons and buy some here but the quality is rather poor. Is there a way to get a higher quality video? or is this just a limitation of the mindbites site?

Fantastic Lesson for Laura

I bought this lesson after Parker had a problem downloading it so we could diagnose the root cause (which has since been fixed, rest assured).

Anyhow, since I'd bought it, I figure'd I'd watch it. Laura does a FANTASTIC job here - I can't get over how amazingly precocious her daughter is. She covers tons of food signs in this video, and after spending a ton of time with my 6-month old niece lately, I can definitely see how useful it would be to be able to communicate with a finnicky eater about what type of food they'd like. :) Great job, Laura!

Just what I've been looking for!

I usually go to (http://www.lifeprint.com/index.htm) if I don't know a sign, but I can't always find what I'm looking for there. Plus I've been wanting a food list to teach my baby.

Incredibly Useful

Knowing food signs and teaching them to your baby allow for increased, detailed communication. I love the idea of knowing exactly what your baby wants, because he/she can tell you. It's also adorable for them to sign what they know!

Definitely worth the money!

Laura is an excellent instructor. She shows the signs clearly, describes what she is doing, and gives great memory tips. Her pace is perfect. The signs shown are the most useful food signs, IMO. Laura's daughter's presence is very helpful in that she demonstrates approximations babies use (not to mention that she is adorable and appears to be brilliant!). I highly recommend viewing this video.

I like this video, because I think babies love food! The signs are really easy to memorize. I am learning along with my baby, and this is just great! I mean... more than 40 food signs, more than half I use every day!!! I recommend this to everyone!
