Useful Military Hand Signals For Checking On A Sleeping Baby

Having just welcomed my first child I am now in the process of figuring out how to live my TV and music lovin' life with a newborn baby around, a baby that is a mere five days old yet somehow knows our voices well.

My exhausted wife needs sleep and so does our little baby boy, and yet if he hears our voices he wakes up and starts crying, wanting his parents to hold him once again.

While looking for a method of communicating non-verbally we came across this super badass chart created by How To Be A Dad that taught us military hand signals we can use while our little man is sleeping.

We've already used the "Oh god it smells awful!" and "I will throat punch you!" ones a lot...
