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"

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.

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.

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!

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

My dd calls it 'boob' it comes out more of a 'b boooob'sort of thing. I taught her boob mostly to iritate my mom b/c she thought I should teach her something more 'appropriate'. I think it is cute. she ponts at everyones boobs and says 'b booob' even her own!. I even caught her trying to suck on her own yesterday in the shower! it was so funny

signs "milk" while saying "breast"
I call it milk or nurse but since ds has learned body parts uses the word breast. fortunately he only pronounces 1/2 the word so out in public no one knows.. yet. when he is done signs "all done" and gets really upset if i don't pull my shirt down. sometimes will point to one side and sign 'all done' When switching b/t sides says "other" which sounds more like "udder" to me!

"Mama", or "other side" (which sounds more like "uh shai"). Usually while patting his chest enthusiastically.

All the names are so cute! My son calls it "mommy milk" and he calls my breast "mommy milkers" When he lifts up my shirt he says "I opened your mommy milkers"

My heartfelt thanks to all those that have donated milk to others; you are amazing

my son calls them 'mama sides' which is a blending of what he first called them 'mama' (while making the milk sign) and 'other side' as in 'do you want the other side?'

i will never forget showering with him one day where he looked at me with a lusty grin and said '2 mama sides!!!!'
