What do you call it?

What do you teach your child to call nursing?

Right now my DH and I joke around and refer to our son as "needing his boobie" or wanting "boobie juice". Of course he's only 4 weeks old and not repeating anything. I just don't think I'll be thrilled with him saying loudly in a store that he "wants some boobie juice", etc. when he is a little older.

So I want to get in the habit now of referring to nursing with a nickname that our son can use when he is a year or two old and requesting to nurse. Any suggestions?
