Baby can use sign language

A two-month-old baby tells her deaf mum when she is hungry — using the Sign Language for milk. Parents Dave Hollings, 46, and Chantelle De La Croix, 37, first thought it was coincidence when baby Ivy clenched her fist, shook it and moved it towards her mouth. But Ivy performed the same action again the next day when she was hungry and has been doing it ever since.
The sign for milk is a shaking clenched fist with the thumb and little finger out.
Dave, of Darwen, Lancs, said: "We thought it was a coincidence that she was hungry but other people have spotted it. "We looked up when babies can start signing and the earliest we have found is three months. We are really proud."
