So I know there's at least two of you here.

We've got one on the way and I was wondering if you guys found out what it was before it was born. I just found out the sex today and I don't know why anybody would want to wait but I am curious to hear reasons for it.

Also, feel free to leave any applicable parenting advice here.

Pretty sure everything here applies in this thread.


I hope I'm at least as good a dad as this guy.

The people who have the willpower to not find out the sex of the baby are much stronger people than me. I absolutely had to know. I think it makes it easier to bond with the baby before they are born if you can call him/her by their name.

The only steadfast rule I've followed as a dad has been to never talk to my daughter like she's a baby. Not only is it annoying, but they are learning how to speak. They shouldn't be learning shit like "Who's a widdle pwecious!? Who is it!? Is it widdle ole you!?" Then they grow up thinking that's the way you say those words.

We found out the sex, yes. My wife was soooo convinced that it was a boy, but I had two dreams that it was a girl. We didn't need to find out because I'm a prophet. But seriously, I don't know what the point in waiting is. This way we had time to pick out names, paint her room the appropriate color, tell all the relatives so that at showers she would get the appropriate clothing, etc. I couldn't think of a good reason to wait.

Quoted for absolute truth.

Here's my parenting advice: listen to all the advice you WILL get from everybody, then disregard most of it. If several professionals, laymen, and books tell you the same thing, then maybe do that. If you get conflicting advice from multiple sources, ignore them all and figure it out yourself. Babies are all the same in that they're each different. I've got two, and the tricks I used for the first just don't work with the second, and vice versa.

The only benefit I can think of for not finding out the sex is to keep well-wishers from buying tons of pink crap if you find it's a girl. I tried to stress gender-neutral colors because I don't like pink OR baby blue, but we still ended up with piles of pink stuff with our girl. One day, my boy is going to look back at baby pictures of him wearing pink hand-me-downs and probably get all mad.

Babies are awesome.

Yep. Everyone's got a way of doing things and they are always happy to tell you all about it even when you don't ask. I read a ton of shit, went to a 12 week birthing class among other things. I ended up using probably 10% of what I picked up, if that. If people ask me, I'll offer some advice but I always end it with "This is how we did it, but you should do whatever feels right to you."

Anytime I felt overwhelmed I'd tell myself that people have been having babies for centuries, and most of those motherfuckers couldn't read, never mind log on to Google. "Just figure it out" is the best advice I've ever gotten. It's not like your kid is going to look up and say "You're doing it wrong." because they've got no idea either.

12 weeks!? Man. I had a two hour class once a week for six weeks and I couldn't stand it. I barely learned anything in it.

I also agree about the baby talk. My mother-in-law does it a lot, which I can't really stand. I'm not going to yell at her and say, "Stop! You're ruining the baby!" I definitely talk to Ellie differently than I talk to most people though, although mostly only in tonality.

Haha, you know what's really bizarre? I had typed up this whole thing about the teacher for the class in my last post, but then determined it was pointless and deleted it, but she had the worst Minnesota accent I've ever heard. And that shit is contagious. Compared to her, I really don't think mine's all that bad. Certainly my speaking is not all bad compared to your slurred speech, peon.

I know you guys are all about ignoring other peoples' advice, and rightly so. But, baby talk really is good for a child's development.

Basically, babies can only communicate through meaningless banter, so when you return in kind, you are opening communication with them on their terms. Babies can't understand regular human talk, but they can at least recognize that baby talk is somewhat relevant to how they are communicating. It's not proven or anything, but it's still something that's heavily accepted in psychology.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Baby_talk

Or you can just go with real talk, R. Kelly style. It's equally as nonsensical, but more dramatic.

It is in the sense that if your baby makes a sound and you repeat it or emulate it, they start to understand the concept. That's not to say you want to mute certain consonants when you are saying real words. You can get most of the desired result mostly by tone, and not by massacring words.

Hmm... I disagree. Why do you think there are some "universal" baby words? Both "father" and "da-da" mean the same thing to us, but your baby doesn't think so. Saying "Come to your father" and "Come to da-da" to a baby are two different things. Babies don't have the cognitive development to say "father", let alone know what the concept of father is. But they do know that you = "da-da".

Real talk.

Ok, I just thought maybe you were drunk all the time.

Also, I think it's funny that you're posting in this thread since I nominated you dad at magfest.

Da-da is very similar to mama, which is indeed a real word. What I refer to is saying things like "wittuh" instead of "little". I don't think that helps anything.
