    Rated 0 out of 5 by This was a great article! I was told by a woman I work with not to use baby talk. I don't know how I would get through my day without it! Even my husband has caught on! February 17, 2014
    Rated 0 out of 5 Being a Speech Pathologist myself, I found this article very well written! Thanks for breaking down the reasons for "motherese" and baby talk! August 27, 2013
    Rated 0 out of 5 by I refuse to think any type of talking including "baby talk" is bad for a child. It shows you are interacting with your child and they learn how to pronounce words, understand facial expressions and body language, and learn about tone of voice. As an educator, I can easily spot which children have parents to talk and interact with them. For example, some parents think their child knows their ABCs if they can recite the song. Knowing your ABCs is knowing what the letter looks like, the sound it makes and the order. July 8, 2013
    Rated 0 out of 5 by I had always heard that baby talk was bad. Babbling incoherently didn't seem like a great idea to me, but now that I'm a mother I see the sense in it. Making language easier for baby to understand and repeat helps him to grasp on to language quicker and join in the conversation. November 27, 2012
