Sign Language?

I am having mixed feeling about teaching Noah sign language. Some people say it is wonderful and helps children to communicate. Others say it causes children to have speech delays.
We did it with Taylor from the time she turned 10 months. Tay did talk late, but she also crawled late and walked late. She has always been my laid back baby.

We have started it with Noah, but I don’t know if I want to continue. What are your thoughts?

I loved teaching mine sign language for early communication...juice, please, help, more, cracker, etc. I would use the sign AND say the word. Don't remember any delays in speech with mine. :)
