My dc call them nursies and use a sign we made up (index finger to the lips, similiar to the water sign but only the index finger). My two year old loves to say "Nursies PLEEEEEAAAASSSSSSSSSSSEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE! pause NOW!" Of course, she still lisps a bit so its hard to make out unless you know what she's talking about.

Milkies here too, though as his vocabulary explodes you never know just how he'll request --

Milkies, mama!
I NEED MILKIES, no, not these milkies, OTHER WAY milkies!!
Mama, please, some super-duper milkies!

mama to Joey (1/04) and Teddy (4/08) :

dd has always said "nursies" -- as in "Can I have some nursies from your nursies?"

i may try to encourage something less conspicuous with ds. My parents and in-laws seem to have adopted a "don't ask, don't tell" policy regarding our nursing- which is OK with me-- but it's kind of funny to see them pretending to ignore a screamy fit that ends with "I'm tired and i need nursies, in the bed, NOW!" dd is rather articulate that way.

My son calls nursing "Ta-tash". He says "tata" for please when he wants something, and he started out calling nursing "sssss" for nurssssssssss, and that kind of evolved into "shhhhhhh" for nurse. Put them together : "tata shhhhhhh" and it becomes a new word: "tatash".
Our whole family now uses tatash as our codeword for nursing. Screaming kid in a store: "Uh oh, someone needs her tatash."
DS will hear a baby crying in a store or somewhere and say "Baby sad. Baby wah wah wah. Baby need tatash."
the actual STUFF (the milk) is now called "Mama Milk" .
He has named my breasts: lefty is 'Sip', and righty is 'Switch'. I used to ask him if he'd like a 'sip of mama milk', and when we'd change sides I'd say "switch!".

DD is 18 months, so she still has a limited vocabulary, but she says "cup" and then tries to pull my shirt up, when she wants to nurse.

i love this thread! how appropriate for this site!!!

my ds nursed until 3 1/2, and my dd is 2 1/2 and is still nursing. my ds started calling it ma-moo, and sadly i do not remember why! my dd is a funny gal, and will say "i want that boob" when she is ready to switch sides, sometimes the back and forth gets to me after about 5 switches from one boob to the other and i tell her to pick a boob, so now she voices her request!

They are collectively known as 'nana', but individually named 'more nana', and 'other side' (it sounds like "ahh sai"). He is very precise about these names, and laughs at me if I get them 'wrong'.

DD says "nur" for nursies, but usually actually says/signs "more" and also signs the nursing (milk) sign. She's been signing that since 6 months!

I think one of the BEST names I've ever heard is a mama on another forum I belong to, her DS calls it "cheetas", which is spanish for boobs. I love it!!!

"Milkies" or "Mama Milkies" most of the time. If we visit a certain friend, she calls it "nur-nur" for awhile when we get back.

She's also been known to just ask to nurse and also ask for a boob. Mostly it's milkies though. In fact, when she rolls over in her sleep, half the time she mumbles "milkies" before setting back into sleep.

I am a 40 year old unschooling, belly dancing, artist-mama of one almost 8 year old. I just had brain surgery and blogging.jpg about it a bit because it's just so surreal.

We call it me-me and when she wants the other side she says "titch"

Our little 19 month old neighbor picked it up and asks her mom for me-me too!

A friend of mine calls it night-night which is convenient in a crowd...I want night-night!!! Amanda, I haven't talked to you forever...are you out there?

Happy mama to three DD's age 13

"Boon-boon's!" or Boonie's (Evolved from boobies Im thinkin')

My son just says "EGGHH?" and grabs my shirt still, although I know he knows what the sign is! He's only 16 months though, so im looking forward to what he calls them.

Na nas. Recently he's taken to saying "open your nanas, please." I think he means open your shirt so I can nurse.

ds is 13 mo, and within the last week has introduced nUUUUUUUUHHH to his vocabulary, usually accompanied by a forceful full-body flop into the crook of my arm.

nursing must be darn important to him if it's in his first 10 words, eh?

They're name has evolved from:

"na-na"

to "mama na-na"

until one day he decided to put them together and say "manna"!

Now, at 2.5, it's "milky manna" for some reason.

Sweet goofy kids!

DS, 2 1/2, has speech issues and used to call it "est". Trying to help him pronounce it, I stressed the beginning sound by saying, "No honey, it's BREAST, b-b-b-breast."

So now what does he call it? Ba-ba-ba-best! Works for me!

DD asks for "creamies". She says that it doesn't taste like milk but like cream.

DS just announces to everyone that his sister still eats nipples.

My son calls it ninny. It's an easy word to say that's also discreet. My mom used it with my bros and I when we were all little, so that's where I got it. She told me that's the word her momma used, but my dad's mom used the same word. I wonder if any MDC mommas use it?

I tried to teach DS the difference, or maybe the similarity, of ninny to cow's milk, which he also drinks. I got him to say "momma's milk" and "ninny milk" and he'll call it that sometimes.

My friend has tried to get him to say "boobies," but luckily it didn't stick.

dd#2 calls nursing "deedee", but sometimes we shorten it to just "dee". DD#1 said "noiwse", like nurse, but with a thick jersey accent, and we've never been to New Jersey! LOL!!

I always said "nurse" or "nursies"....

First DS called nursing "nay-nay"

When DS was learning to say his first words, he called me "mama" DH "dada", nay-nay became "nana"

Now we are Mommy and Daddy and nursing (and my breasts) is called "nanny"

There are four kinds of "nanny"

1.Nanny-boppy (for when he wants to nurse on the boppy)
2.Nanny-stairs while signing "sleep" (for when he wants to go upstairs to bed!)
3.Nanny-shyyde (for the other side)
4.Nanny-buhbye for when he's done and is getting down to run off to play right after!

Oh and MIL is Nanny Jenny!!! So when DS said "nanny", she thought he meant her--she was so excited! We told her what it meant but I think she keeps forgetting cause she still gets all happy when he says it.
