Who’s the evildoer who taught my daughter to say “night-night”? She never spent a night away from us, and I’ve avoided this grating affectation completely.

But when she grabs her doll and heads for her room with the words “night-night”, the last thing I want is to open a debate.

  1. Maybe it’s a combination of “night” being easier to say than “good”, an understanding that “good night ” needs two syllables, and a common child habit of using repetition.


  2. Maybe that’s what they say when they go take a nap at daycare? I remember with my sons in daycare, they kept it pitch black in the room when the kids were napping. It makes sense to say ‘nighty-night’ when it’s so damn dark.
