I think it's pretty clear that the reason we call them nuh nuhs and babas and numnums, etc is because that's what our babies can say. I don't call them breasts, I call them babas when asking DD if she wants to nurse bc that is what she calls them, and to be frank, I would rather have her call them babas vs breasts when she's old enough to annunciate and announce her needs for nursing-in-public. I'm not going to get militant about the use of correct feminism-friendly nouns when it comes to feeding my one year-old.
