My 28F sister 31F looks after my daughter maybe once a month or so. She’s kind of me and my husband’s backup backup babysitter since she’s not really a kid person. I know she loves and cares for her niece but one thing that’s always bothered me is that she speaks to my daughter like an adult. Doesn’t baby talk with her at all.

I brought it up with her this weekend that it bothers me but she brushed me off saying she’s treating her like a person. She speaks to her cats in a baby voice all the time and when I mentioned this she told me her cats are never learning how to speak so it doesn’t matter for them.

I feel like she’s dismissing my feelings as a mother and prioritizing her cats over her niece. She thinks I’m being crazy and said that if I feel that strongly about it to find a different babysitter. My husband thinks that I should have dropped the subject because now we don’t have an emergency babysitter if we need one.

Am i in the wrong for getting mad at my sister for not using baby talk when she speaks to my daughter?
