Boo.

And no, it doesn't stem from boob. It comes from the fact that her older brother has speech issues and calls juice "boo". (And by juice he doesn't mean "juice" - he means water with a lemon in it, go figure.) So whenever he was thirsty he said Boo, and now she picked it up.

She also says "me" for please, because that's how DS pronounces it. So "Boo me" means "May I please have some milk, mommy?"

Levi says 'ning' - we started calling it that when he was a newborn, because his 'hungry' cry sounded just like he was yelling 'ning ning ning' (he has very distinct cries for different things)
He also signs 'milk please' - when I tell him 'ok, some sit with me' he says 'nek you' (which is his version of thank you), its so cute! (and I didnt teach him that he did that on his own)

That is what my aunt called it when she nursed so we adopted it. Addyson says nin nin or ninny.

But we do call them "ninnies". So my three year old, and everyone else is trying to get Zach to say ninny when he wants to nurse.

My two year old has called it me-me as long as she has been talking at all. Now, she can say, "Mommy, I want to nurse." But when she's sleepy, it's always me-me.
And, yes, she requests "chair me-me" or "bed me-me" or "other side me-me- already!"

She also likes cow's milk which she calls cow's milk. Not very interesting. But sweet, just like everything she does. . .

Have any of you had to "nurse" toys for your toddlers? I nursed a ladybug today.

I knew that I wanted to nurse for 2 years at least so I made a conscious effort to avoid the potentially embarasing "I WANT BOOBIE!" that so many have mentioned...so since DS was born I have called it
"Latte" (Italian for "milk") I am also working Italian language into his everyday where I can so this worked for us. I call cow's milk "milk" now so he will always have a distinction.

He signs too...so it's really great when I'm naked and he sees my boobs...he signs for "latte" since that's what they are!

My 18-month-old calls it "bibi". She's been using the word since about 12 months old. We think she was trying to say "baby", but we're not sure.

I remember asking for "me-me" when I was nursing as a toddler lol


DS had been calling it "leche" (Spanish for "milk"), then he started calling it "ice cream" (I have no idea why lol) and now he says, "I want to drink you mommy" lol

He calls it boo-boo. But right now he's going through a phase where he puts a "t" sound at the end of his words. So now it's "boo-boo- t".

She used to just tell me she was hungry. She never said that when she wanted solids, only for the boob. Now that we have a new baby she is calling it nummies.

My first weaned at 17 months and he still didn't talk much then. His sign for it was to tap my shoulder.
My 12 month old now calls it ba-ba and he also signs for it. If I am not holding him he will tell whoever is MA MA MA MA and repeatedly whack them on the shoulder.

DD calls it "boo" and sometimes "special boo." I think she's been saying this since she was about 10 months old.

Well the original word was "Eatlies" which was pronounced by DD as "Ah-dees." And now, even though she can say "eatlies" they are still known as "ah-dees." And that term goes for the act of nursing, the milk, the breasts, everything that has to do with it....

DS calls it "moke," which is his word for milk. He signs "milk" at the same time.

dd1 said "ooos"
dd2 said "aboo"
ds says "nay-nay"

all three made up their own word. dd2 was her form of "boobie". i definitely did not want to hear her scream this in the grocery store so when she mispronounced it and said "aboo" we just went with that...

"Nigh-nights"...all three of my kids have said the same thing. My 6 yo DD refers to breasts as nigh-nights still! It must be because I always would say "ready to go night-night" at nap/bed time. My 13 month old has been saying it for a long time already. #3, early talker!

DD (32 months) will just come to me and ask "milk, please?"

But if she's in a super playful mood, she'll say, "it's time for milky-dilky, mama!"

I always called them "nursies" to my son, and he pronounced that deedees. For months around age two, he would say, "More bite deedees!" So sweet. He self weaned at 3.5 years, and still called them deedees. He doesn't remember nursing now though, *sniff*.

My daughter is 14 months, and doesn't have a word for it yet. She signs milk with both hands, or pats them and makes a funny, "asking" sort of noise in her throat.

I'm actually excited to find out what she'll call them!

Cool thread! I'm so happy to see that other kids refer to "other side."
Arden went from the sign for milk to "other side milk" around 18 months (I think). He's 2.5 and has shortened it to "osamilk."
Now, he gets a kick out of pointing to cows and where their babies get "udder side cow milk."

DS sees me bf his sister and he says "mummy milk" or "boobie milk". If his sister is upset, he'll say to me "She wants mummy milk". So sweet.

She weaned at about 3 1/2, but always called it measies (combo'ed "mama milk" and "nursies" into her own word.

The memory is still there, though, she turned 4 in April, so it's a good while since we stopped nursing. the other day, I was in the closet picking out clothes to get dressed and there was a step ladder in there (DH had left it after using it to gain attic panel access.) DD saw I had no top on yet, scrambled up the ladder to breast hight and yelled, "MEASIES!!!!!!!!!!!!" I laughed and hugged her and said "Sorry baby, the dairy shut down last year."

Mama to DS (8) and DD (7) Aristotle was not Belgian. The central message of Buddhism is not "Every man for himself." And the London Underground is not a political movement.
