What does your toddler call nursing?

I thought there was a thread on this already but I couldn't find it. So here's a new one.

What does your toddler call nursing? I was waiting FOREVER... first for DD to talk at all, and then for her to find a word for nursing, and she has one now.

"Mah?" It's like a combination of "mop" and "more" but w/o the ending sounds of the words. I was nervous early on when I knew I'd be nursing a toddler, b/c I didn't want her yelling out something socially unacceptable in the middle of the store or something, but I think I can handle "mah" lol.

We call it milkies (DH and I), but she doesn't say it - she signs for it.

My little guy points at my chest and says "juice". Sometimes if I offer him some water or something he will say "this juice" and insist on nursing. I think it is funny and adorable. My mom and sister however are mortified.

"Dink!!! Dink!!!! Dink!!!!" (drink) Usually screamed at the top of his lungs while frantically pulling my shirt up, especially when we're in a store or restaurant.
At home it's just him pulling at my shirt and saying dink or whining for it.

Cute!
She calls it numnum or nummom or mommom. When she was tiny she called it neh neh and still does if i don't respond quickly enough at night or if she's hurt.

DD just called it milk but I always called it "mommy's milk" and "cow's milk" to differentiate the two.

she calls it "mamapeas" because I would ask her what she would like - and before she could speak - she would sign and I would say "Nurse please mama?" When she began speaking, she would sign and say "mama". Now that she speaks, I make her add "please" - therefore - "Mamapeas"
