The six month time period is a good time to start doing baby signs with your baby. It helps with your baby's cognitive abilities and memory - also, believe it or not, signing has been shown to help communication and language development! There are many flash cards, books, and DVDs that cover baby signing exclusively.
Some of the most important signs you can introduce early are "more" (while feeding), "eat", "bottle time", and "all done". You can make up your own signs for each object or action you are introducing. The important part is to be consistent. As you continue to use these, your baby may start signing to you in the next couple of months!
