My DS called it "Boppy" because I would say "lets get boppy " (boppy pillow). DD (not yet talking) smacks her lips and smiles a jack o lantern smile at me.

DD, almost five, still calls it "tee-tee"---and "mommy, I wanna cuddle with your tee-tees!"

DS, 23 months, has gone from "Nucken" to "Did-did-DA". (Figure THAT one out! )

When he wants to switch sides he has *always* said "Dick-oh-day". When he feel chatty, he lifts up my shirt to decide which side to nurse on and sing-songs "dickoday-dickoday-dickoday..." :

Since he was under a year old, when I fall back asleep during a night nursing before he's changed sides, I'm woken by a stern "Dick-o-day. DICK-O-DAY!"

And when he latchs off to go back to sleep, he murmurs "BUH-bye..."

my 21 month old milky boy started with a hand gesture, like milking a cow, at 8 months, then progressed to "nay-nay" or "nee-nee". he still loves to look at me and smile while nursing, making the milking sign with his hand.
the funny thing is, that both he and one of his closest pals both started calling it nay-nay at 9 months or so... independently, not in eachother's company.

we use the word "leche" which is spanish for milk. before talking is involved we use sign language for milk which is to open and close a fist as in milking an animal.
this is proving to be a super cryptic and discreet form of communicating its time for nursing.

DS is only 8mo so no requests yet. Though DD (started very soon after he was born) says "eat mommy booby". And always very loudly...

My DD just says "Nur" for "Nurse".

When she wants to switch sides she says, "Side?"

MonkeyPrincess just started using words when she wants something. She calls it Boob-E in a kinda growly voice while grinning.

My dd calls it the act of nursing "ma nurse" and my breasts "ma nursings."

Some of her most common phrases: "I want ma nursing RIGHT NOW!"
(When she wants to switch sides) "How 'bout this one ma nursing?"
(When the baby is crying) "He wants ma nursing!"
(When she wakes up in the morning and I'm pretending to be asleep so I don't have to nurse right away) "Daddy, I want ma nursing!"
(When I'm undressed) "Nice ma nursings, mommy!"

My current nursling says "mikies" (Milkies minus the "L" )

dd and ds#1 called it "nur" short for nurse
ds#2 called it "Side" because I use to say to him "You want this side or this side?"

My daughter (9 1/2 mo.) just recently started chanting Nanananananana when she wants to nurse. She can also sign "milk" which is what I usually try to call it.

"mores". I guess I used to ask her "do you want more?" She's 3 and it's still mores; she sees babies or baby animals nursing and they're "having mores".
Kids are so cute!

Nummo! DD is 2.5, and we've called it nummo since she was learning to talk. I think it started because she was trying to say nipple. I like it, because it's discreet in public, and very cute. When she finished one side she says 'other side', which usually comes out sounding like 'uh sigh'. She normally speaks very clearly, but she's in such a hurry to get the other nummo she slurs it all.

Once she said "Your nummos are so big!" (which believe me, no one has ever said before!), and she's also said "I love your nummos", with that sweet milky smile that is so heartmelting. Just the other morning she was nursing and she kind of stroked the fleshy part of my breast and said "You're a smooth woman", which cracked me right up. I loved it though, because she was expressing her delight in nursing.

DS calls them nursey nurses... He asks to nurse and then always says 'other side' in a plantive voice... Middle of the night when he is starting to wake 'other side' is generally the first words out of his mouth! http://www.mothering.com/discussions...milies/lol.gif


The other day he was getting dressed and pointed to his nipples and asked what they were. I said "nipples" and he said "are they nursey nurses"? I said kind of but not quite!

My oldest, now 17, called them "Na-nees". My middle one, now 14, called them, "Mookies". My baby, age 3 1/2 and still nursing, used to call them, "Mama Na's". then he heard his dad call them, "Titties", (when dad didn't realize he was listening) but didn't hear it right. Now he calls them, "Kitties"!

My DD screams "aqua" when she wants to nurse. I think she got that from my nightly routine of telling her I needed to drink water before we nurse to sleep. She calls it out at night. She also refers to large bodies of water ( rivers) as "aqua" and standing pools of water. We do not speak Spanish but I teach the word. I think she is being discret

I have always said milkies, but DD, 22 months, pats her chest and says Ma Ma when she wants to nurse, so it's kind of her own sign and word combo. I call myself Mommy, so I think Ma Ma is her version of milkies and not supposed to be "Mama"-- either that or it is a meshing of the two. It's cute and in public a lot of times people just thinks she wants Mom, which isn't entirely wrong, it's just not the whole story.

DS asks for "momo" which I believe is derived from "more! more!"

When he wants to nurse standing up, he asks for "nin" (his word for "standing")
