LOL!

 

My son started out with signing "milk", then it was "nurse", then it was "nee", and now it's "nurse" again.  He likes to call them my boobies.  My daughter has a funny little speech impediment and calls it "nursh".  Everything has the "sh" sound in it.  Outside is "aufshide".  lol.gif

DS (15 months) signs milk usually. He was in a phase a few weeks ago where he was just ripping my top down and/or pulling my nipple out in public, so we've worked on signing "milk please" and it seems to be working!

 

DH often likes to tease DS while he's nursing telling him "no they're MINE" ...so now DS has started calling nursing "mine", coming up to me, pulling at my top or signing milk saying "MINE!!!"

My son says nursing, except for nursing to sleep, which is "nursey-do-do." Also "moah nuhsing!" and "uddah sayed!" 

 

We went to the state fair and saw the piglets nursing, and now he keeps talking about piggy milk.

My son says Ummhuh (like the yes sound) and signs more.

 

I had taught him to sign nurse, but while pregnant with DS2 sometimes I'd say yes to nursing and other times no, so he decided to give me the answer he wants when asking love.gif

 

and the more morphing into nurse...I don't know we just went with it.

We made the mistake of using the word NIPPLE too often.. so now my 20 month old runs around calling out NIPPLE NIPPLE when she wants milk. I am trying hard to redirect it to MILK but no luck so far.

NIPPLE! Can't wait for the first time that happens in public!

My son says "may may". He's almost 3, but he still calls it that. When he was little he would cry "may may may" when he wanted to nurse.

13 month old DS will occasionally say "nur" (for "nurse"), but mostly he just starts going "Mmmmm mmmm," yanks my shirt wide open to stick his head in and take a peak, then pulls back and reaches both arms all the way down into my shirt and attempts to pull out a breast. My roommate thinks it's hilarious. We're working on it.

DS, at 16 months, calls nursing "bah," which I think he got from me saying "Let me move my BRA" as he'd shove his hands down my shirt :)  He's never taken a bottle, so it's not from that.  When he wants to switch sides it's "mo' bah."

I NEED TO NURSE at more or less the top of her lungs.

 

Also things like "I am tickling your nursing" and "why do you have soap on your nursing."

 

She just turned 2.

My oldest always said "Mimees" - never knew where it came from.  My second born - learned "mimees" from her sister.  My youngest - we taught him to sign milk - now he says "ilkies" - which is short for milkies.  But often he just goes to the rocking chair or couch & slaps the seat.  As if to say "Come sit down so I can nurse!"

"nah-nah's", but Im done now. With new baby, Im going to try to encourage "milkies"

It's "boo-boo" for us too! :)

Boobie- Not cool when you are in public with a 3 + yo.

 

Nursie was my DS name for it and it felt wrong to call it that for DD2 when she came along while DS was still nursing. I should have thought a little more about it lol.

My almost 15mo son will climb into my lap, lean back, look at my breast, then at me, and smile.  I'll ask him "do you want to nurse?" and he'll say "yes, durse" luxlove.gif

DD has been signing milk for the past year and just recently started using words to ask to nurse - first "ide" (side) while pointing to which side she wanted, then she started calling nursing "chi chi" (leche).

My 2yo Adam calls it a "snack"... my sister says he's going to be really confused at montesorri, when they say it's snacktime! winky.gif

post #39 of 76

Here it's always been "ti-ti" (said like tea-tea) or we also do baby signs where baby would tap on the breast or his chest

post #40 of 76

My 18 month old son taps my chest, and has started to scream "NEE NEES" when I thwart him.
