Ds has been an avid talker since the day he came out, he literally will not stop talking.... we have alot of issues with this, because he talks 24/7. Now that I am back at home with him full time, I am at my wits end, because he just won't stop!!!! He goes on all day, and takes like two hours to fall asleep because he talks to himself! What can I do???

?? Let him talk? I'm not sure there's anything you can do. DD is a talker, too. People comment to me all the time how she talks a lot. I just reply that she has a lot to say. DD doesn't stay awake because she talks, though. She stays awake because she reads. Overall, it doesn't affect the amount of sleep she gets because she goes to bed relatively early. In general, she's asleep by the same time every night, so I don't worry about it. If it was interfering with her sleep that might be another story. BTW, she gave up naps at 2.5 so she is asleep around 9pm every night.

My dd is 3 and is like that for the last year and is getting even worse. Now it is constant questions that I have to answer or she gets mad.

I wish I had some magical advice. My 3 year old is the same way. I am an introvert and need quiet time. I do not get it unless he is asleep. He and his older brother share a room and he tends to keep his brother awake at night with all of his talking. It seems like he just doesn't think inside his mind at all, if you know what I mean. Everything that comes into his mind comes out of his mouth immediately. The only time (besides when he's asleep) that he quits talking is when strangers ask him questions. I have been known to tell him to please be quiet for a little while, mommy needs some quiet. He will quiet down for a minute, then forget and start talking again. I can certainly sympathize.
