My baby stopped signing, what happened?

When my son was about 12 months old, he had been signing pretty regularly and then he suddenly stopped for about 3 weeks. At 13 months he began walking and then the signing resumed. Sometimes, when babies are working on new skills such as walking, they may focus all their efforts on learning the new skill. If your baby suddenly stops signing, don't give up. Allow her to work on other skills and milestones, she should resume when she is ready. Also, don't get frustrated and force anything, remember signing is a fun activity!
