What does your Nursling call it? - Page 8

post #141 of 154
DS calls it "moke," which is his word for milk. He signs "milk" at the same time.

while he stopped nursing at 33 mos., he still fondly refers to them as "nursies".

dd1 said "ooos"
dd2 said "aboo"
ds says "nay-nay"

all three made up their own word. dd2 was her form of "boobie". i definitely did not want to hear her scream this in the grocery store so when she mispronounced it and said "aboo" we just went with that...

"Nigh-nights"...all three of my kids have said the same thing. My 6 yo DD refers to breasts as nigh-nights still! It must be because I always would say "ready to go night-night" at nap/bed time. My 13 month old has been saying it for a long time already. #3, early talker!

DD (32 months) will just come to me and ask "milk, please?"

But if she's in a super playful mood, she'll say, "it's time for milky-dilky, mama!"

I always called them "nursies" to my son, and he pronounced that deedees. For months around age two, he would say, "More bite deedees!" So sweet. He self weaned at 3.5 years, and still called them deedees. He doesn't remember nursing now though, *sniff*.

My daughter is 14 months, and doesn't have a word for it yet. She signs milk with both hands, or pats them and makes a funny, "asking" sort of noise in her throat.

I'm actually excited to find out what she'll call them!

Cool thread! I'm so happy to see that other kids refer to "other side."
Arden went from the sign for milk to "other side milk" around 18 months (I think). He's 2.5 and has shortened it to "osamilk."
Now, he gets a kick out of pointing to cows and where their babies get "udder side cow milk."

DS sees me bf his sister and he says "mummy milk" or "boobie milk". If his sister is upset, he'll say to me "She wants mummy milk". So sweet.

She weaned at about 3 1/2, but always called it measies (combo'ed "mama milk" and "nursies" into her own word.

The memory is still there, though, she turned 4 in April, so it's a good while since we stopped nursing. the other day, I was in the closet picking out clothes to get dressed and there was a step ladder in there (DH had left it after using it to gain attic panel access.) DD saw I had no top on yet, scrambled up the ladder to breast hight and yelled, "MEASIES!!!!!!!!!!!!" I laughed and hugged her and said "Sorry baby, the dairy shut down last year."

My dd who is 2 yrs 8 mo calls it "ma". She was saying this since she could talk but thick headed me didn't figure it out until she was about a year. I always knew what she wanted but didn't connect the "ma" with nursing. Sometimes now that she can talk a lot better she says, "Mommie I want to nurse." 90% of the time it is "ma" though.
My dh thought it would be funny for her to learn, "Nice boobies." So I hear that frequently or, "Mommie, I like your boobies." Sweet, I guess.

Nip!
A long time ago DH and DS were in the bathtub together and DH was naming bodyparts. DS pointed to his chest and DH said 'nipples'. That was it...it stuck!
Now DS is 22 mths and asks for 'nip, please' or 'please, nip' and nods his head enthusiastically!!!

Mine calls it "Nome". I don't know why. Lately, he has been saying, "I want some boob," which is not nearly as charming.
