Do you and your toddler have a special word for nursing?
DD1 used to say, "mop."
I say milkes, he signs milk like crazy or if I'm already holding him he'll throw himself into the cradle position.
dh, ds and myself all say milkies
we have some family members who called it num nums

i've been calling it that since ds1 was an infant. sometimes "mama snacks" in order to prevent confusion.
i started because i thought it was funny to offer a baby snacks. now i'm glad to have an alternative word. we do the milk sign too, but call it the snack sign, of course.
i ask if she wants baba and she gets all excited and says yeah alot. it is so cute. we are working on signs. we use a mix of milk and mommy to sign it. it looks like you are milking your chin. lol

DD decided her word is "boo." Ever so subtly accompanied by more-or-less frantic pulling on my shirt LOL. this has been her word for oh probably since around her first b-day.
boo? like its' a question. it's too cute. (that's what I get for calling her 'boobmonster' all the time LOL)
lovin DH since 1/04, best mom for my 3 boys 10/04, 11/08, 11/10 one girlie (1/07), one 13 wk (10/13) and 5/15 just your average multigenerational living family!!

However, from DS it was more like nuh-sss.
DD is nus with a slight r-ish sound before the s. The other thing she does is insist on nursing each side at each "setting". She makes a big drama out of which side gets to go first!

Which is what all mine have called it. But that's what I call it. That's what I called it w/my mom. I love that we have a multigenerational nursing word.
