Dads Less Likely to “Baby Talk”, Study Finds It’s Alright

By  •  News

Dad Talk to Baby

Have you ever noticed that moms and dads speak differently to their babies? Moms tend to engage in “baby talk”, while fathers’ words tend to sound a lot more like the kind of conversation they’d have with an older child. Or, say…their accountant.

“This isn’t a bad thing at all — it’s not a failing of the fathers”, according to study lead Mark VanDam, a professor in the Speech and Hearing Sciences department at Washington State. “We think that maybe fathers are doing things that are conducive to their children’s learning but in a different way. The parents are complementary to their children’s language learning.”

“LOST” Baby Nursery [INTERVIEW]

Ohhh “LOST”, I can’t quit you. Apparently, neither can Monica and Joao from Portugal. This husband and wife collecting duo have some unique items and aren’t afraid to show it. Their blog, m-and-j-collection.blogspot.pt, features an amazing collection that they are both passionate about.

There are photos of everything you could possibly imagine. Some of my favorites include a Terminator 2 T-800 Endoskull, a 1996 bootleg of Nine Inch Nails – Soundquakes: Quake Soundtrack, an authentic special collector’s edition Top Gun U.S. Navy G-1 Jacket and a special edition Borat DVD with Mankini from Australia. If you want to see a room filled with most of their collection, there’s even a 3D overview.

Their home is literally a museum for everything they love… and they’re weeks away from bringing home their greatest love of all.

[VIDEO] Breakbeat Baby

Remember Sean Phillips? He made a baby beatboxing video that went viral a while back. Naturally, we saw it and noticed it was also featured on our BFF Jeanne Sager’s Cafe Mom article. We liked it, it was cute. However, some internet moms had to destroy the fact that a 7-month-old baby (at the time) could not actually beatbox.

*ascii facepalm*

Anyways, 1-year-old Jonah is back with some fresh beats! Clearly, he has stepped out of his comfort zone by venturing into the vast realm of baby breakbeat, upping the complexity of rhythm.

Check out the video after the hip hop, hippie to the hippie, the hip, hip a hop, and you don’t stop a rock it to the bang… just… click “To be continued” below if you’re not seeing the full story.
