First, his term for nursing is "raw ide" or, translated "other side." It used to be "little bit" as in "I want to nurse a little bit."<br><br>
So the right side is "o raw ide" and the left side is "ur raw ide." I am curious to find out what these mean.<br><br>
LOL

That is SO cute! Maxi just says *muk* (milk) for nursing. It used to be *mi* but the past few months he has gotten the K down. Now he says *more muk?* when he is ready to nurse! I love that he can verbalize it! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

Haley, my 23 month old, asks to nurse ("Please, I nurse?" or "Please, I mertz?" depending on how much she feels like enunciating! :LOL ) She sometimes asks for "Rackree's side" ... she usually nurses on the left, her brother Zachary (and formerly her brother Alexander also when we were triandem nursing) nurses only on the right.<br><br>
None of my kids are shy about asking to nurse ... loudly ... in public. My 5 year old self-weaned on his birthday, but he'll sometimes ask too, just to hear me call him a weaner (a joke in our family stemming from the fact that he weaned, so he thought he must be a weaner, not knowing the other connotations for weaner (weiner). I had to remind him what a hot dog was when trying to explain, and didn't even go there with the other meaning!

ava's been calling right boob nuhnuh and left one nunnie. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"> nunnie only comes out at nighttime ( i am soooo lopsided!) so i think that's how it got its own special name!

Awwww...those are such sweet stories. Thank you Mamas <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"><br>
I can't wait until my guy graduates from thumping me on my chest and saying "Nah-Nah. Mamamamamama." And when he wants to switch, he whacks the empty boob a couple times.

The right breast is called "Rah Rah" and the left one is "new Rah Rah" <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin"><br><br>
I'm not sure why one is old and one is new but I'm sure at one time the right one was empty and he wanted to switch to a full one.

My dd who is almost 5 yrs has called the left one "boobie sika" and the right "boobie siggy" for as long as I can remember....she was probably younger than 2 yrs when she named them.....lol<br>
DS in only 1 yr so he hasn't named them yet, but it will be interesting to see what he comes up with.<br>

awww,i love the sweet babies names for nursing <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"> my dd calls mine "mimi" and "otha mimi" , she'll even sing it sometimes, so freaking sweet. ode to the mimis...i used to call em "boobings" but she christened them "mimis" at about 10 months old. "otha mimi and mimi" i think she started doing at around 12-13 months.
