Any bilingual mamas here? Are you talking to your baby in your native language? How is that going? I find myself speaking mostly my native language to LO when hubby is at work, but when he is home I speak both. So worried my LO will be confused :(

I speak 2, my husband speaks 4. We speak in our languages, kids catch on with English through tv, school, & friends(: the sooner the better and easier for your kiddo to learn. They won't be confused! Promise(: the longer you wait the harder it will be.

It's actually better .! At a young age, they have better learning skills they soak everything up like a sponge, especially language. You're doing your LO a favor by speaking both, and although it may be confusing at first, it really helps in their future.

I speak mostly spanish to my LO, as do my parents. The shows she likes are also in Spanish. She will learn English as she gets older. I want her to know both.

I'm not, although I do understand Spanish & Portuguese (as most of my friends in Hs were Spanish and Portuguese). My Husband is Brazilian and he will talk to our 6 month old daughter in Portuguese.

We all speak to my LO in Greek and some English here and there. He'll pick up English in school so I'm not worried and as we live in Canada he'll learn French as well.
