I knew a mom whose 4yo called it "sweet milk!" which I thought was so nice

DD1 "Beeboh"
DS "Bootah"
DD2 "Bitty" though I think it will change. She nurses with big brother and so I'm sure she'll eventually start calling it what he calls it. For now I relish in hearing "Bi-TTY?" :

Nurse but it sounds like "jursh/mursh/bursh" most of the time because he hasn't quite mastered N's, though he's getting close! Sometimes he just asks for nipples which kind of sounds like "nibbles."

My son signs and says 'urtz' instead of nurse.

Recently he's also started saying, "Couch," and climbing up on it when he wants to nurse as that is our 'usual spot.' At bedtime, our conversation goes like:
Couch?
No, sweetie, it's time for bed.
Couch?
Naw, let's go nurse in bed!
Couch?

Ah-boo. Usually accompanied by shirt grabbing or boppy giving. (A bottle is known as Bah-boo and demand for it is usually shown by banging on the refrigerator.)

It has changed as my 32-month-old has become better at speaking. First she signed, then it was "mut" (milk), then "baby milk" (as opposed to ricemilk and mama's milk, which is what she calls dairy or soy), now she calls it "nursies."

My 22 month old has always just used the "milk" sign, but a week or two ago she started saying "two? TWO!" (as in two boobs) whenever we're getting ready to nurse. And if I'm putting her down for a nap and I pull away too quickly, I hear a frantic "two, two, two, two!!!".

So, yeah, pretty cute. She came up with that herself.

Wow, the word two looks really weird when you type it out a bunch of times.

i though long and hard about this while pregnant with my son...(now will be 4 in november) and i did now want him screaming "boobies" in public so i came up with a nickname...when he was just over a year he would chant; "Numnum Numnum Numnum" i thought it was adorable. my babie girl is 11mos i stoped nursing my son soon after becoming pregnant again.

With ds1, I had to stop nursing at 4 mo (so sad, I wanted to nurse a lot longer, please don't ask on the forum, PM if you want to know) so we had no word. Although, I was thinking of one. Maybe mama juice. But was told it sounded dirty.

With ds2, I call it "na-nas" (rhymes with mama), his dad calls it boobies, breastfeeding, nursing, whatever, and his grandma calls it che-ches and calls ds2 a "titty baby" which I kinda like. I'm trying to teach the milk sign, which he's kinda getting, he'll make a fist if I sign it. I sign milk say Na-Nas? DS2 makes fist, smiles, latches.

After seeing (or, rather, hearing) other kids yell "boobies!" in awkward public situations, I used the term "nurn" with my son from a very early age (I think I picked that up from an MDC thread actually, ) Anyway, taht was all find and good till DS was about a year old...then one day DH taught him to call it "nanu"...you know, like mork and mindy?
Well, DS uses both terms now, pretty interchangably... and not just for the actual milk... nurn/nanu= the milk, the act of suckling, and the breasts themselves. So he says things like "I love da nurn" or "two nanus!!" When he sees me changing he makes comments "I see da nanu!" and so on.

My dd just asks for nursing, but she also calls all of my skin nursing. So it's either "Can I do nursing?" to nurse, or "Can I touch your nursing?" to squeeze (or pinch) my arms or belly.

My three year old says "nursies". My 14 month old just has a specific "eh eh eh" that's been distinctive since he was about 3 months old.

use to call it Milky when she was really young. Now it's Noko, or Mama-noko. It's been that for quite some time now. I love it. It's very special to us and I hope she calls me that for a very long time. Sounds like a great name for a nursing wear line... hmmmm

This thread is funny.

My 15 m.o. has just started to call it "boo" (as in boob). She also will pull off and clap while smiling sometimes. : It's so adorable. :

Sometimes she points and makes a num num num num sound.

She also just comes up to me and makes this little uh uh uh uh sounds while patting my chest or lifting my shirt.

We were watching Olympic diving on TV yesterday, and she had just finished a HUGE meal of spaghetti sauce, bread, strawberries, grapes, milk and water. So when I heard her making "Numnumnumnum" noises I thought what the heck? When she did it a second time a few minutes later, I realized it was when the male divers were standing waiting for their scores... you could see their nipples. It was only the divers with dark nipples that got her numnumnum-ing.
