What do you call your breasts/boobies/nips to your LOs? - Page 2

What a cute thread!

We say "bb's" or "bee-bee's."

At first I decided I wanted to reclaim the word "boobs" for lactating breasts, but in the end "nursies". Sounds like "noosee" when my toddler says it.

When my eldest son was about 16months old he started calling them "me-mees" The name has stuck. My big boys (6 and 3.5) both laugh when someone mentions eating at "Mimi's"

Nursers. And the verb nursing. And the white stuff inside my nursers? Nursing. And if the "nursing" is in a bottle? Still nursing.

For example: "Do you want some nursing?" and "Daddy's going to warm up some nursing for you," and "No pinching mommy's nursers." I even do this when I am talking to my husband, e.g. "my left nurser hurts--I have a plugged duct again."

I'm not sure why I started calling it that. But I have a hard time using the "right" words, for some reason.

I'm not nursing yet (baby isn't due until May), but I'll probably just say "milk". My friend has a 3 year old and when he wants to nurse he asks for "milk" and holds his arms out to her. If he wants milk in his cup he just doesn't extend his arms.

DD#1 started calling it "side" because I would ask her if she wanted the other side. Now that is what we refer to it in our house. In fact, DD#1, who is 3, thinks that the proper name for breast is side.

I call breastfeeding "nursing", I call my breasts "breasts" when I need to, as in, "please don't pinch mama's breasts". I when I ask DS if he wants to bf, I say, "nurse?" and make the sign for milk. I guess I didn't get all that creative. I am hoping that eventually he comes up with something cute on his own. He is starting to say "na-na", but who knows.

My dd calls her pacifier bob. I think we decided one night at about 3am that it was short for "boob"

Dd calls them, "Milkies". When she wants to nurse, she says...er commands, "Milkie, mama"!

My dd's call them boobies and we call nursing, "nack." Like snack but without the "s." My second daughter gave it that nickname at about 18 months I believe and now when we are bringing milk to the baby she likes to tell anyone who will listen that "baby gracie gets boobie nack and mama pumps for her!"

We were driving home from the grocery store when my son was about 2 months old and he began to fuss and groan. My husband commented from the front seat that "Groanie loves Chachi" and hence my "chachis" were born. Now they're a standard part of family conversation. Finn was fussing at Christmas and my brother called from the other room "Hey, I think this baby wants some chachi!" I wonder what Scott Baio would think if he knew that there were boobs out there named after him.

I love it. We call it nursies, but I might have to incorporate the port and starboard into our family.

DS weaned before he was verbal, so we never called it anything, but lately he's been asking about when he used to nurse a lot, and we have friends with young babies so he sees them nursing. Anyway, for some reason he never just says "nursing," he always says, "nursing with her breasts," as in, "K is nursing Baby N with her breasts." I'm due with my 2nd baby in 3 months, so I imagine that's how he'll talk about it once his baby sibling is here too.
