    Have you talked to a doctor about this yet? Also, is this something that only happens at night and not at all during the day?

    "Two year-olds talk funny sometimes" - exactly this. Unless there are other signs or information that something may be wrong, this was my first thought.

    The child may also just be experimenting or playing around with speech patterns - our first child did this sort of thing around this age, where he picked up this sort speaking pattern from his peers because he thought it was neat.

    comment How do I get my 4yo to stop repeating himself all the time, and to respect a quiet time?
    I'm not sure it's anything other than a phase - our 5-yr-old does something similar regularly. Advice given to me was to keep being patient and consistent and it'll eventually get through.
