Hi! I'm not a huge fan of extreme baby talk either...(but I think with my own child I'll probably be pretty bad myself!) And it definitely is not fun to have your wishes ignored (especially when it comes to your own child!) But here is something to consider: I would never have known otherwise if I wasn't studying speech and hearing sciences (which includes courses on Child language development)....but baby talk, actually termed "motherese" or "parentese" is considered to be helpful in a child's development of language. As a baby, they have the ability to learn language much faster than if you or I tried to learn a second language. Things like "motherese" can actually help them distinguish different words from the stream of noise....I don't know all the facts but you could look up on google something like "is motherese important" to find out more. That being said, most babies will learn language well regardless. However it is always important to engage, talk, and read with your child a lot over their growing years!

I detest baby talk! And I refuse to use it when speaking to my LO. Aergean and I talk to her like we talk to each other. I have asked friends and family not to use baby talk when they talk to her, but its gone straight in one ear and out the other. Is there a nice way to broach the subject? Because I'm super fed up with my wishes being ignored!
