Just curious, as I was reading the sweet thread below I saw lots of sweet names toddlers have for nursing. My 31month old has called it Nur-Nur for well over a year now, but now he will say Mama, I need to NURSE not Nur-nur!
What does your nursling call it?

Sagesgirl 04-19-2009 02:46 AM

Booby. Or Boob. I tried getting them all to call it Choomp, but they far prefer to demand Booby. (Linda used to yell it when she wanted to nurse; thank God it sounded a lot like Daddy.)

Esther will come up to me and say "I'm hungry. I need to eat your booby."

Sharlla 04-19-2009 02:56 AM

He didn't really call it anything, he was much of a talker by the time he weaned (at 24 months) I called them "nursies"

ElaynesMom 04-19-2009 03:04 AM

My 20 mo dd calls it "bee" or "bee-bee".

Boobie here too! I didnt know what to call them so I started asking him if he wanted boobie and now its so cute he says it. He even points to his chest and says "boobie" when he wants it. So cute.

This is cute.

hram 04-19-2009 01:44 PM

boom boom or side, if she is upset she will make a motor boat noise.

Disco Infiltrator 04-19-2009 03:50 PM

Booby! Except the second b gets dropped so it's "booey".

Hahaha DH encouraged DD to call them boobs. Now she will go "boooOOOOOOOBB" With a strong crescendo, as if she might explode if I don't pop her on right that moment.

We just started teaching her to sign and I think it's momentarily confused her. So she will sit on my lap and "pat" my boobies, while her hand is making the milk sign.

Gosh we seem boring.

My DD says "Milk please, mama!"

That's it. Just milk.

Of course, I really can't stand made up words and baby talk, so this may be why.

That aside, I still sometimes wish my baby girl had a sweet name for nursing...

babymonster 04-19-2009 07:43 PM

"Drink a mama milk!"

SmoothieMom 04-19-2009 07:52 PM

hoo hahhh.... mom mom mom mom hoo hahhh

Pumpkin_Pie 04-19-2009 09:07 PM

I have been talking about this to friends lately too, and it is so sweet! DS calls it "Nay-Nay", but I have also heard other toddlers call is Nee-Nee, Nee (just one, not the double Nee-Nee of another toddler), Nuh-Nuh, Yum-Yum, Ma, and Mama Milk. I am so happy that I know so many nursing toddlers!

Oh and SparklingGemini, I hear you on baby words driving you nuts. My son has only Nay-Nay and one other word that are "baby" words. The rest I work with him on and it drives me nuts when he reverts back to baby talk. The other word is so sweet that I can't bring myself to work with him on it. He says "Me-gurt" for yogurt. He totally got the pronoun thing that when I say "you" he says "me" really early and started calling yogurt "megurt" when he was about 18 months old. It makes me all melty.

Ok, back to your regularly scheduled sweet nursing names thread!

Ds (27 mo) calls it milk, and I think it is super sweet . He specifies "your milk" or "mommy milk" sometimes.

What does your nursling call it?
He signs milk and says Na-Na (long a sound)

uumomma 04-19-2009 11:27 PM

Salem 19 mo= Num num

Colin called it "mutz" we don't know why

Mathias called it "swiss" (Switch)

*MamaJen* 04-19-2009 11:39 PM

Whenever I unhook the nursing bra, 15-month-old DS starts saying "mama" over and over again. He barely even says mama otherwise, except for when he spies a boob. If he were a frat boy, he'd basically by saying, "Hey, tits!"

Macnamara 04-20-2009 12:21 AM

My 14 mo. old hollers, "n-n-n-n-n-n-n-n-n" when he wants to nurse.

claddaghmom 04-20-2009 12:27 AM

Oh and I wanted to add that my littlest sister, who is doing CLW, has called it ump since she could first talk. Not sure where ump came from, we asked her recently.

She said quite matter of factly, "Ump is the name for Mommy milk. I knew this when I was a baby."

We tried to get more info out of her, but she stuck to it!

mama de dos 04-20-2009 12:56 AM

Buh-buh

It sounds, unfortunately, like Bubba.

My boys called it nursie, b/c that's what I called it. Dd invented her own word and has used 'buh-buh' for a long time now.

lamomma 04-20-2009 02:57 AM

My 16 month old came up with "uh-uh'-uh" (accent on the middle uh)and he makes the milk sign. he's been doing this for a couple of months. I've always called it "milk". It seems so odd.

Mama Phoebe 04-20-2009 03:21 AM

nursies.

Or, more frequently

NURSIEEEEEES!!!

lawschoolmama 04-20-2009 07:54 AM

DD (18 months) calls it "Ta." Before she was verbal, I couldn't decide what to call it--I wavered between nay-nays because I thought it was cute, and tee-ta because that's what me and my siblings called it. But DD made her own choice, hehe

Mama~Love 04-20-2009 08:07 AM

These are all so cute!

DD is 2, and she calls it dupidas. Sounds like doo-pi (short i sound, like pit)-das. No idea how she came up with that .

Juniperberry 04-20-2009 08:26 AM

my DS used to say Bibi (bee-bee)

so cute some of these names

BennyPai 04-20-2009 08:27 AM

My girls: Nummy-nums/numma-nums/numma- numma-nums. By the age of two, dd1 had also adopted a friend's term: Chi-chi and dd2 started saying "Nurse, Mama, nurse!" She's 3.5yo now, I am 40+ weeks pregnant, totally out of milk, and she's still nursing and using this term.

My favorite term is used in my MW's family: They say Boo-Joo (Boob Juice). *J is pronounced like french 'J' in Jacques. They've even taken to calling thier youngest Booj.

charitycase20 04-20-2009 10:02 AM

I wish my 17 month old would call it something!! He's still not talking but when he wants to nurse, he'll get up in my lap, get horizontal and start fussing. Like I'm supposed to know what he wants in that position.

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.

Mama.Pajama 04-20-2009 11:23 AM

My 18 month old has called my chest "THAT!" since he was 12 months old. He's not discriminating either- wherever we are, be it at home on the couch or in line at the grocery store, he points his finger at my chest and says "THAT!" He doesn't mess around when it comes to his milky (which is what I call it).

Mine just started intermittently using "Milk" interchangeably with "THAT", which is adorable to me.

columbusmomma 04-20-2009 11:35 AM
