Talking to the baby

I am not a natural talker to babies. I mostly just narrate what I'm doing and point out things of interest. Reading and singing songs are good too. They don't have to be children's books or songs all...

I agree with the others that your relationship with your BF sounds fairly chaotic and not terribly healthy for either of you. You don't say why you're considering ending it so it's hard to speculate...
