Do you have a LO who talks to him/herself?
My 2yo son has started talking and sometimes even answering himself. Sometimes it's when he's in trouble, and he's crying, I will hear him say, "Dont cry buddy, it's ok". Which breaks my heart, and I in turn ask him if he's ok.
The most recent was a few seconds ago. This is all to himself, "Oh, can you help me?" "Ok, I'll help you" *groan* "Oh, thank you!" "You're welcome." He had been laying across a chair and I guess he lost his balance for all of a second? And helped himself gain his balance back?
My SO thinks it's cute, I do too but at the same time it bothers me that he thinks we aren't there for him, or thinks we dont pay attention to him.
And yes he does crazy things all the time, like tries to crawl under beds and gets his head stuck. Or tries to crawl into the baby's basinette. Or even the baby's jumperoo. If he needs help Im always there to help him, so it's not like he's had some traumatizing event where he was stuck for an extended period of time.
