Hello, everybody! Idit here. Welcome to Hebrew Top Words and today, we are going to talk about top 10 phrases to know when having a baby. Let’s get started!
1.
להניק
(lehanik)
"to breastfeed"
להניק היא פעולה שגבר לעולם לא יוכל להרגיש
(lehanik hi peula shegever leolam lo yukhal lehargish)
"No man would understand how it feels to breastfeed."
Yeah, I guess not. Maybe technology someday, maybe.
2.
להחליף חיתול
(lehachlif chitul)
"to change a diaper"
שני ההורים צריכים לדעת איך להחליף חיתול
(shney hahorim tsrikhim lada'at eikh lehachlif chitul)
"Both parents should know how to change a diaper."
Duh!
3.
להלביש סינר
(lehalbish sinar)
"to put on a bib"
תראה איך הוא מלכלך את החולצה! תלביש לו סינר
(tire eyckh hu melakhlekh et hachultsa! talbish lo sinar)
"Look how he's messing his shirt! Put a bib on him."
It all goes to the laundry anyways, whatever. You got to change his clothes ten times a day anyway no?
4.

(lehachlif bgadim)
"to change clothes"
אין דבר, נחליף לו בגדים אחר כך
(eyn davar, nachlif lo bgadim achar kakh)

הילד שלי לא נרדם מבלי ששרים לו שיר ערש

"My kid doesn't fall asleep without a lullaby."
My dad used to sing me lullabies when I was like a kid and he chose the most horrific sings and he thought I wouldn’t understand the words that he’s saying or the lyrics, but I did and I was traumatized and I’m still afraid of clowns ‘til this day so yeah. It was about like a clown in the circus and his father was a contortionist and then one day he fell off the trapeze and broke his neck, but the kid who was a clown had to keep on smiling because that was his job, but nobody knew that he was crying from inside. It’s just horrible.
?
Shivers!

Hi Shelley,


Thanks for posting.


Babies (תינוקות) is an irregular plural noun and functions as the plural of 'baby' in both feminine and masculine.

Therefore your phrase used the right form. Please consider a few other notes in my correction: ".עוד לפני הלידה, אימהות שרות שירי ערש לתינוקות שלהם"

- instead of using the future tense, in Hebrew, when describing a general phenomenon, we will use the present (שרות instead of ישירו).

- From a similar reason (generality), we would also use the plural of lullaby and not the singular.


I hope that's clear, please let me know if any additional clarifying is needed :)


Yours,

Roi

Shalom, please refresh my memory-can you say male babies as tinokim or is it an irregular ending ? Thank you.

תינוקים. עוד לפני הלידה, אימהות תשירו שיר ערש לתינוקות שלהם. Even before the birth, mothers will sing lullabys to their babies. Is it necessary to make lullabys plural? How would you spell that
