Just be patient. If she's getting frustrated give her what she wants and then ask follow up questions like how's your milk, and use the sign for milk. Also try introducing it in everyday activities like when you are at the grocery store. We started teaching my daughter signs at 19 months because she was non verbal and it helped her tremendously it just took a lot of repetition and practice for her to catch on.

Thank you how long did it take. For her to understand and start doing the signs?
