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!

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."

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"

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...

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.

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!"

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!

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.

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.

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

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.

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.

Charity - BW, BF, Co-Sleeping WOHM to Gracie (1/06) & Zachary (11/07)-WOW! I'm crunchier than I thought!! :

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.
