How does your dc ask for bm? - Page 3

post #41 of 67
28 months...

Mommy, I just need some nay-nays. On the couch. Diego (his doll, yes from Dora ) needs nay-nays, too. Diego have this nay-nay. I have this nay-nay (while pointing out appropriate nay nay). I need nay-nay right now.

Pete, 2yo, says . .. "I muurrrrse":
It's adorable and even my 9yo ds calls it "mursing".

He's two, almost 2.5

"Mama, lay down chi chi?" And when I repeat back to him "jack do you want laydown chi chi?" He brightens up and says "Okay" grabs my hand and takes me up stairs.

He will also comment on other's getting chi chi. Puppies get chi chi.. "Oh No! that baby gets a ba ba, not chi chi." He comments on the cleavage of younger women... or teens... "mama, PREEETTTYY chi chi" with a point to the young woman.

And if someone is crying and around his age, he will walk up to them and tell them I have chi chi, that will help. This happened at swim lessons the other day.

His older brother smashed his foot in the door, Jack brings me to him... "mommy, chi chi Isaac." Isaac was crying, and Isaac is 10!

Jack thinks chi chi will cure the world.

DD (20 mos.) will bring me the boppy pillow, and if she can't find it, she'll say "Where boppy?" or "Where boppy go?" and whip her head around from side to side, looking for it. Then she brings it over and crams it on my lap and says "I want to nurse!" "You want to nurse, huh?" I say, and she jumps up and down and says "Yeh! Yeh!" It's too cute.

That's where mine got his name for it. He says "I want sido."

DD will be 1 year old in 2 weeks, and she says "mum mum mum" when she want to nurse. She pulls at my shirt, lifts it up from the bottom, or puts her head down the top of my shirt. For months, I've been saying, "Do you want boo boo?" But she hasn't caught on yet.

She's 14 months and says "baba" while signing for milk.

OHHH this thread makes me all teary-eyed remembering! My DS1 is 3 years and weaned at 20 mos, and my little nursling (2.5 mos) doesn't ask because he just nurses 24/7! But back when DS1 used to ask, it was always for "num-nums" or "nummies" and he would draw it out NUMMMMMM, smacking his lips. "I have some nummies now, mama? PLEEEEASE?" When we were night-weaning (the nummies went night-night), I remember once he tugged me over to the chair saying, "I have time a'fore nummies go night-night? Quick, now, num-nums!"

Now he just pats my breasts sort of wistfully while his baby brother is eating and says, "These are your nummies, in your bweasts. I used to eat these nummies when I was a baby."

Esther either does a nose-dive into my cleavage, starts trying to pull a boob out, or if I'm shirtless grabs one & starts to suck. She's still 99% preverbal though.

Linda used to scream "TITTY" at the top of her lungs (which, thankfully, sounded like Daddy, but boy were my husband's feelings hurt when he figured out what she meant ), then switched to saying "Bressmil". From there she went to "Breast is best." Now, though, she comes up and says "My tummy hurt. I need choomp." : I have no idea where she got that from.

This morning, my ds, who usually says "Ma" or "Me-Ma" to ask to nurse, laid there for a sec before he nursed and said, "Hi, Ma!"

So, just now Evan climbed up onto my lap, lay down, looked up, and said... "coffee?"

The funny thing is that I don't even drink coffee, but my mother was just here for a few days, and she does, so he learned a new word...

Ya know, I think Jack is right! Maybe not the way he feels it will, but mama boobie will help cure the world. Breastfed children are so loving and sensitive!

DD started off calling it mmmmm, we would ask her if she wanted boobies and she would go mmm mmm like she'd never eaten before that then morphed into mmmbith, a combination of mmm and boobies

That is so true! Whenever DS hears a baby cry he says "baby need boo". He also enjoys sharing mama's boo with his baby doll!

ds empathically says, "dis" while pointing at the couch (where we nurse) or does a nose dive down my shirt.

My 25 month old asks for "wook" (milk) or "wilkies" (milkies). When he wants to switch sides he either says "udda side" or "side".
