I didn't want my daughter saying "boob," either, so we called it munai, the Chinese word for mother's milk. At like 8 months, she started calling it "nai-nais." But she's 17 months and she's been saying munai for a while now. Recently, too, even though I only ever say "Do you want to drink munai?" in Chinese, she says "I wanna nurse," or "I wan' mulk." Which is really cute, too!
