Do you ever feel like youre talking to yourself?

Do you ever feel like youre talking to yourself when youre talking to your baby? When I take my 9mo son on walks I talk to him, point things out and ask questions. Sometimes I feel like I'm talking to myself though, and I feel like I probably look like im loopy, lol. He will respond by making babbling noises but its not like we have a real conversation going on. Lol, I guess I just feel weird sometimes. Anyone else feel like they are talking to themself?

  • no, never! because you are speaking to another person even if they are unable to converse with you just yet. talk to your child as much as possible, it helps to build their vocabulary! and try not think about what anyone else thinks.

  • Yeah but I don't care. :) It's more fun talking to my 3 month old than a lot of people I know!

  • I use to feel that way when my daughter was first born. She's 2 months old now and I don't feel like that anymore. I sometimes feel silly because I'll be walking around the grocery store talking up a storm to her or even singing the song they are playing!! People sometimes look at me like I'm nuts but I don't care :-)

  • Not not really. I've always considered my son to be good company :) I talk to him all the time and the only time I really feel weird is when we're out in public because I get looks when I hold one-sided conversations with my 1 year old lol. But I really don't care, because it's good learning for him!

  • I should add that I tried the whole reading aloud to your baby while pregnant thing and THAT made me feel weird lol!!

  • All the time. The other day, I was singing to my 11-month old in Costco because he thought it was funny. I felt like a total moron.

  • I used to, but now I talk to her all the time. :) When I have her in the store, I'll point things out and when people tell me she's cute or adorable, I tell her that she's being admired again. I get smiles and coos in response and its so cute ^_^
