"Hi cutie-patootie, do you want me to pick up something yummy for din-dins?"
A sentence like this sends immediate shivers down my spine. That's the exact effect 'baby talk' has on me.
Whether you've been on the receiving end of some baby talk in a relationship or you've let slip a little "I wuv you" from time to time, baby talk between partners is definitely a contentious issue.
But like many relationship quirks, there's often a reason behind why we are the way we are.
So I spoke to Dr Jessica Wade, a specialist in sexual health and well-being, to find out more about why people use baby talk in relationships and why others have such a hard time swallowing it.

Despite baby talk copping quite a bit of flack for being cringey, Dr Wade says this behaviour can actually be the result of a healthy connection between two partners.
"This behaviour often involves the use of simplified language, playful tones, and endearing nicknames, creating an environment of shared affection and closeness between partners," says Dr Wade.
