My Mood:
At home we say it's "boobie time", but out we say nurse. Hubby says breatfeed occasionally.

I love this! I think it's great that they know what you're doing. One day, one of those girls (or many of them!) will be wondering how she'll go back to work with a baby and she'll remember that in Jr High, her teacher pumped. What a great influence to have! YAY for you!!!

Most frequently we say, "hittin' the tit," but usually breastfeeding or feed. I guess I just didn't hear nurse very frequently... I always read "breastfeeding" and the drs said breastfeeding.
