Baby #1 said Mutmuh, but the t was not really pronounced, just gutteral. (sorry about spelling!) It was close to mama when others heard it, but definitely distinct.

Baby #2 - milk mommy

Baby #3 - milk milk mommy

Baby #4 so far puts both hands palms up with her hands squeezed, and hums mmmmmmmm.

Two other cute nursing words were from two of my nieces - sidey - hata.

DD says "nurse," but it's always more like (running toward me with a huge grin) "nuuuuuUUUuuuuUUUUrse?"

neh or nehneh

it just made sense because it was the sound he made when he was little and hungry. we used boobie for the first few months and then decided that maybe we didn't want him to run around screaming for boobie as he got older.


sometimes ds also first asks for "boppy," and brings me the boppy and then says neh or nehneh. i love that

Nummies

I'm not sure how it started, but DD has been calling it nummies or num nums for several months now. Maybe as a cross between nurse and yummy.

DD has several words for it. She calls it milk and will point at her nursing friends and pictures of nursing animals in books and such and say milk. We also went through a phase where she was pointing at other women's breasts and saying milk. Fortunately she only did it with nursing moms, even if they weren't actively nursing at the moment. We're pretty fortunate in that DD is surrounded by nursing toddlers

For awhile she was asking for milk when she wanted to nurse. Lately she's asking for side. It's my fault as I'm always saying "other side?", "you may only have one side at a time," "Do you want this side or that side?" etc. I think she's actually calling my breasts sides. I have not corrected her with the term breast (not what I want my toddler screaming in public), but I have encouraged her to say nurse or milk. She does say the word nurse, pretty well too, but not generally when asking for it.

Another one with "milkies" here. Ds has only just started saying it, "miwkies" so cute! It was the first sign he knew, and now it's the last one he uses - as he's now talking a lot.

Dd said "nur" for a long time, and then it was "nurse?" said like a question. Now it is "zurse!", said emphatically.

I don't come here anymore. MDC has become overgrown with ads & useless extra forums.

My girls always called it "nummies". Lately thought, my youngest daughter has been calling it "sissy juice". I think breastfeeding reminds her of her older sister, who passed away from sepsis last December, so she calls it this. I think its sweet.:

my 2yr old ds started off saying 'juice', which came out more like 'joosh!'. probably because thats how we always referred to the contents of his sippy cup.
i've always called them 'sippies' , ever since i was an extended nursling (and before the advent of the sippy cup i might add. when those came out my mom and i were like they stole our word! )
so now he says sippie, too. :

"Mas"

That is the word my son came up with and I think it is a cross of "mama" and "nurse".

He asks to "mas", and lately to see the "mas" and to hold the "mas" (to keep it safe).

I LOVE nursing a toddler!

My son signs for milk, and if I ask him "do you want some milk?" he will nod vigorously. During a feed will sometimes say "Sha shide" (other side)

DD also calls it baba - she just made it up herself! It's too cute! Sometimes, when she wants babas really bad, she says it in this croaky voice- baaaabaaaa. I can't help laughing! She's 16 months, btw.

At about 10 mo he started asking for "bubs" (although sometimes it was more of a whine with a massively worried look on his face), and has progressed to "boo" (more like a question while sticking his hand down my shirt) and occasionally "booby" @ 13 mo. What makes me laugh the most is when he asks for it in his sleep

DD (21 mo) calls nursing "muh" with or without the sign for milk. She also thinks that that's the word for breasts and points to other people's chests, too, and says "muh"--but, luckily, mostly family members! If she sees me in the bath or dressing or whatever, sometimes she'll point and say, "muh" and I'll say something like, "Yes, that's mama's breast. That's where the milk comes from," and she'll go: Mmmmmm! She's so cute.
