Baby talk, towards BABIES is fine, I've read somewhere it's good for their language development. I do think that once said baby reaches say, 2, that baby talk should cease. My MIL still says horsey worsey, doggy, and all sorts of nonsense to our DS1, who is 5. Drives me nuts. I feel your pain.

I think there is a difference between baby talk to babies and to toddlers that are starting to form words. I know children that have speech issues because their parents spoke to them in baby until 3 or 4, I personally cannot stand any form of baby talk but there has to be a time when it hinders speech rather than helps.
