When he's about four months old start teaching him simple sign language!!!!!
Seriously!
I've watched my grandson learn and recently my friends taught it to their son.
Why?
Because the main reason babies cry is frustration! They want something but the parents just dont know what!

My grandson was fed by mum (not bottle) and whenever she was about to feed him she'd show him her hand and open and close her fingers (like repeatedly making a fist), it took about a week for him to start using that sign.
Every couple of hours she'd give him a sip of water from a cup, but just before giving him the water she'd raise her hand above her head, again it took about a week for him to learn that too.
When he switched to solid food she taught him to lift his hand up and down to his mouth so that he could ask for food.
What really became apparent was how often he wanted just plain water! He'd have a couple of spoonfulls of solid food and then sign for some water.
He hardly ever cried, and thoughrouly enjoyed his mealtimes, because he was able to tell mum he needed water, or wanted more food!
At the stage where he was switching to solid food, he'd ask for it, but during the evenings he'd sign for mums food!
A baby without signs does not have these choices!!!

Just make up very simple signs that a baby can copy, be aware that at first they dont realise that you need to be watching, so you may miss his first few attempts.
Signing also sets them up for talking at an earlier age because they are more aware of communication and its benefits.

Enjoy the kid while you can because before you know it he'll have kids of his own!

Good advice with which I wholeheartedly agree. It's becoming more and more popular, because it works. There are also some YT vids on baby sign language.

Congratulations to you and Mrs tadaman.

You have quite a journey ahead of you.

You have gotten some great advice here, and I would like to add some.

Don't forget to make sure that momma and daddy are taken care of too. If You two arn't healthy physically and mentally and spiritually, you two can't help anyone else.

Make sure you make Momma know she's special right now. She really needs that from you.

I wish I'd known about it when my own were young, but at least I got to be a part of it with my grandchild

My daughter first heard about it through a website, they called it Macketon...or something like that, but in the end she just made up her own signs, just enough for him to tell her what he needed.
I have video of him having his first christmas dinner and using signs for water and "Gimme more!"

Would love to post it but his mum says no. He's her first child and she's very protective.

Good for you! I hope you aren't going to have him circumcised. That # is SO bad. It's not YOUR penis, it's HIS. Let him decide when he gets older. Educate yourself about the foreskin and circumcision at:
www.thewholenetwork.org
www.norm.org
www.intactamerica.org

It's NOT just a little snip..............It's a BIG deal..LEARN!

hahaha...

son, this year I got you a corvette for your birthday!




By the way... April fools!


hahahahaha



My dad did that to me on my 16th birthday. He took me car shopping and said he had to go to Walmart first. He went to the toy aisle and was looking at the toy cars. He said, "Pick out which one you want, Hot Wheels, or Matchbox." When I jokingly told him he was cruel. He said, "What, you and I both know it's the only car you'll fit behind the wheel of." LOL

This last Christmas, he did buy me a 2001 Saab 93 convertible for my next two Christmas and birthday presents. It was in excellent condition with 3 previous owners. The dealer wanted almost $8000 but I got him down to $5000.
