    Question What do they call it?

    My DD (15 months) has recently started asking for nursing by saying, "me? me? mememe?"

    I think this is because much of the time when I think she wants to nurse, I will ask her, "Do you want me?"

    I thought it would be fun to share what your LO calls your boobies or how they ask for a nursing session.

    So what does your LO call it?

    Joe says "mama milkies" except that he doesn't say "milky" very well, so it comes out as "mama gulkies."

    You can call me JoMo!

    Nummies or nums for short. I really wish now that she's older that I had encouraged her to just ask for milk. It ain't fooling anyone when your preschooler asks for nummies while out in public.

    "Da puppoo", usually combined with the sign for milk.

    My DS says "milkies" but it sounds more like "mickeys".

    It started out as "Boop" but I wasn't terribly comfortable with her shouting that at me so we worked on calling it nursing. Which came out "noos". Now she asks to nurse or on occasion "nurse your boop"

    • my surprise baby: the one and only D-Man born 3 weeks late (5/5/08) at 9 lbs 14 oz and 21.5 inches, and
    • the shock H-Girl born about a week late (10/7/09) at 8lbs 15oz and 20.75 inches.

    If I am here I am covered in baby (probably two) and fighting for control of the keyboard.

    Wondering if you have PPD? Take the screening and see your doctor. You deserve to feel better.

    so cute!

    I get "teta? teta?" usually sounds like a question. she adds the sign for emphasis in case I didn't hear her. sometimes she'll unlatch and point to the nipple and say.."teta." a statement this time.
