I livein England and follow tiny talk. if you google tiny talk it it will tell you where the classes are that are local to you and you can also order resources from there.

My baby is 4 months old and i have signed with her from birth. Start slow. All i sign is "milk" and then i do sign animals and things when we are singing songs. I would just start with simple signs like milk, food, more and gone until your baby has grasped them dont bombard him with signs or he wont be able to relate them to the situation.

start out with just a few at a time so you both can remember them and add a new one every couple of days

I have tried it, my friend is a deaf/blind intervenor and used it very successfully with her first child. I have found it great for alleviating frustration because now he can tell me wants milk (the most helpful one) and more is also great. It is definitely worth it, they get excited over the signs because then they start to understand what is happening and be able to communicate in return
