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?

We call it "nummies" when my 2 year old asks for nummies most people who don't know assume it is her cute way of asking for food, which I guess it sorta is, just not the food they are picturing

My daughter said "Ning Ning"

My son says "e-IDE (other side), Ning Ning or boobies"

And when I ask my kiddos where there boobies are they point to me and not their own. Is too cute!

DS used the milk sign. He wasnt very verbal till after 2yr old.

DD called it "num-ah-nums". Its what she came up with on her own.

I'm mobile.... sorry for the typos!

Nursing. Or "time for the baby to eat". I don't like silly-sounding names because it's not something silly; its a nutritionally beneficial wonderful thing. I'm an adult and I want to sound like an adult doing a responsible good thing. Jmo.

We have always said "nursie". I am funny about what to call it because we have a friend who calls it "titty" and the first time it stood my hair on end.
