    A couple of weeks ago I was standing in the sugar aisle saying "Now, does Mummy need icing sugar? Mummy can't remember". And then I looked down and remembered that she wasn't even with me

    Nobody made any comments though, I think it was more like "stay away from the crazy lady talking to herself"
    Yep done that before.

    Some people are dumb. Maybe nobody spoke to them when they were little.

    I had this. Done in a nice way by and old lady. I told her one day she will be able to answer me back. She replied with "yep and in nice clear words that every one can understand"

    Oh god what a stupid woman.
    It's natural to talk to your kids, it's how they learn.

    Gobsh*tes!
    How can you NOT talk to a little wide eyed child staring up at you from the shopping trolley?
    God help their kids, IF they once found enough joy in life to make some.

    Maybe she was just out looking to pick on a mum and had nothing so made that garbage up! Mums in public are always wrong some some reason or another right?

    Stuff her! Sing away your bub will be talking before you know it

    I think it might be an old school parenting frame of mind. I don't think people were as into actively engaging their kids as we are encouraged to be today. It's a shame when jerks share their uninvited opinions. And yep - I'm always talking to DD (20 months)!

    I always talk to DD, not just in the trolley but everywhere we go! They learn so much in those first few years and benefit so much from even the smallest things.

    Plus, aside from the learning aspect of it, I just love chatting to DD. She cracks me up and I don't know how people don't talk to their kids?! Especially when doing something so boring, like shopping.

    gosh .. even when Jack was a bubba would sing to him ... rofl "We're going to the laundry .. the laundry .. the laundry .. we're going to the laundry to dooo some washing" ...

    I used to talk to him throughout every shop ..

    meh ... stuff the cranky old people.

    The more language that a young child is exposed to .. the better ..

    Default do you chatter to your child while in the trolley?

    I was talking away to my 4 month old bub in his pram at the shops and I ran into a girl I used to work with and she commented that I was "one of those weirdos that talk to their babies". I'm sorry, what? He is a person. It would be weird if I didn't chat to him. How do they learn if we don't?!
