dd1 talks in baby talk all the time, and has been for about a month or so and it is driving dh and I up the wall.... the funny thing is that dd2 hasn't really started saying anything yet, though obviously dd1 is trying to get more attention by talking baby talk.... dh and I have told her we will pay attention to her, that all she needs to do is use her regular voice, and that her baby voice is hard to understand. Sometimes when she says something I will ask her to use her regular voice. I have told her stories about how special her voice is.... and I am not 100% on this, but I think sometimes she uses the voice when she is asking for something that she thinks might get a "no" or when she is feeling insecure.... I get this feeling mostly through body language and the voice, though most of the time what she is asking for is reasonable and not something I would say no to.... I am at a loss for what to do to resolve this, and sometimes her baby voice feels as grating as fingernails on a chalkboard. Any help would be appreciated.
