What does your Nursling call it? - Page 7

Milkies.

Boo.

And no, it doesn't stem from boob. It comes from the fact that her older brother has speech issues and calls juice "boo". (And by juice he doesn't mean "juice" - he means water with a lemon in it, go figure.) So whenever he was thirsty he said Boo, and now she picked it up.

She also says "me" for please, because that's how DS pronounces it. So "Boo me" means "May I please have some milk, mommy?"

"Mom, I want nurse boobies!".

Levi says 'ning' - we started calling it that when he was a newborn, because his 'hungry' cry sounded just like he was yelling 'ning ning ning' (he has very distinct cries for different things)
He also signs 'milk please' - when I tell him 'ok, some sit with me' he says 'nek you' (which is his version of thank you), its so cute! (and I didnt teach him that he did that on his own)

That is what my aunt called it when she nursed so we adopted it. Addyson says nin nin or ninny.

But we do call them "ninnies". So my three year old, and everyone else is trying to get Zach to say ninny when he wants to nurse.

My two year old has called it me-me as long as she has been talking at all. Now, she can say, "Mommy, I want to nurse." But when she's sleepy, it's always me-me.
And, yes, she requests "chair me-me" or "bed me-me" or "other side me-me- already!"

She also likes cow's milk which she calls cow's milk. Not very interesting. But sweet, just like everything she does. . .

Have any of you had to "nurse" toys for your toddlers? I nursed a ladybug today.

I knew that I wanted to nurse for 2 years at least so I made a conscious effort to avoid the potentially embarasing "I WANT BOOBIE!" that so many have mentioned...so since DS was born I have called it
"Latte" (Italian for "milk") I am also working Italian language into his everyday where I can so this worked for us. I call cow's milk "milk" now so he will always have a distinction.

He signs too...so it's really great when I'm naked and he sees my boobs...he signs for "latte" since that's what they are!

My 18-month-old calls it "bibi". She's been using the word since about 12 months old. We think she was trying to say "baby", but we're not sure.

with dd1 it was an evolution of speech 'moke'->'mokey'-> 'milkey'->'milkie sides'
ds is was 'ursh'-> 'nursh'-> 'nursies'
cub, 19 mos, started w/ 'inga' at 12 mos, but has been saying 'ursh' for months now

I LOVE this thread!!:

I remember asking for "me-me" when I was nursing as a toddler lol


DS had been calling it "leche" (Spanish for "milk"), then he started calling it "ice cream" (I have no idea why lol) and now he says, "I want to drink you mommy" lol

He calls it boo-boo. But right now he's going through a phase where he puts a "t" sound at the end of his words. So now it's "boo-boo- t".

My little guy calls it "na-na". Dont' ask. I have no idea.

She used to just tell me she was hungry. She never said that when she wanted solids, only for the boob. Now that we have a new baby she is calling it nummies.

My first weaned at 17 months and he still didn't talk much then. His sign for it was to tap my shoulder.
My 12 month old now calls it ba-ba and he also signs for it. If I am not holding him he will tell whoever is MA MA MA MA and repeatedly whack them on the shoulder.

He calls it "This" as in "Do you want this?" He points to it and says "This! This! This!"

My 20 month old DD just says "Milk"? I've got to teach her how to say "Got" in front of the "milk"!
post #139 of 154
DD calls it "boo" and sometimes "special boo." I think she's been saying this since she was about 10 months old.
post #140 of 154
Well the original word was "Eatlies" which was pronounced by DD as "Ah-dees." And now, even though she can say "eatlies" they are still known as "ah-dees." And that term goes for the act of nursing, the milk, the breasts, everything that has to do with it....
