What do your dc call nursing?

post #1 of 131
Thread Starter 
Ds just says "I want to nurse" but he calls breasts "nurns" still. I know I should probably correct him but I like that he can talk about my "nurns" in public and it doesn't catch people's attention the way boobs or breasts would kwim? Sometimes he does say "I want to nurse your big nurns."

He calls my breasts "cows" (we used the sign for cow for nursing and then he learned what it meant : ) and he asks by saying "cow please mama"

She says "monnies" (mama milk) for nursing and for breasts.

DS just started saying "more sides" which comes out sounding like "moor sidesss". I have always asked him if he wants milkies, but when he is finished with one side I ask him if he wants the other side. I guess that is where more sides comes in.

DS#2 says "milkies". My 5-year-ols couldn't say "breasts" last year, so he called them "bricks." Imagine...."mom, does he want your bricks again?"

He doesn't call them anything. He's 26 months and talks but still signs "nurse" not sure why but I think it's cute.

Dd can't talk yet but she knows what nursie means!! We ask her if she wants some nursie. So not sure what she will call it herself though-can't wait to hear it!

"Ziez-Ziez" (his slang for nursies, which was my slang for nursing!)

She calls it/them "boobs". Not positive where she learned this from (probably my dad). But it's stuck with her for a while now and probably wont change anytime soon.

Ds always said "I want boobie!" Then he changed that to "Peas boobie"

Mine points to my breasts and says "mama" We call it mama milk, so that's how that got started.

A friend of mine has a dd who would call breastmilk "nipple waters"... She'd point to her mother and say "Please nipple waters?"

I thought that was great!

Dd1, now weaned, asked for 'nursies', and dd2 demands her 'mee-mees'.

My 23 month old calls it either choo-choo or dee-dee. She came up with both on her own. It is nice when we are out, though, because she will say "Choo-choo" "Pleeeeeeeeease choo-choo" and I can take her and nurse her without people knowing what she is talking about Most think she is talking about a train

I have always called it 'nursies'.

I've always just called it nurse/nursing. DD did the same, and DS tried to, but it came out "Eece" (rhymes with peace), and that's what it's been ever since.
DD even calls it that now

I think it's cute that we finally have a nickname for it, and it's pretty original

dd, 11months, just started pointing at my breast and saying "that" well at least it sounds like "that" but then again, everything that she point at it "that"!! but still very cute. we can ask "what do you want" when she obviously wants to nurse and she'll point and say "that"!!!!!

nur nur ~ hence my name on MDC. It started back with my twin daughters 6 years ago, I would ask do you wanna nurnur and it took off from there. My 17 month old calls it nurnur and laughs and repeats me when I say other side? !!!! No body gets it when we are in public which surprises me a bit but I like it! Of course when your toddler starts pulling up your shirt and saying NURNUR NURNUR most poeple can put it together!!! he he
