Thread: What names have your babies called BF?

  1. #1

    Smile What names have your babies called BF?

    I was just curious as to what your little ones have decided to call breastfeeding.
    My oldest son only breastfeed for 6 months so never named it.
    My middle son nurse for 18 months and called it Tita's.
    Now my daughter who is 32 months old and still going strong(BF) calls it NUMMIES. Which I think is so cute and very helpful when in public b/c no one knows she is talking about BF so it save a big scene which I nurse her around my husband and sons, mother-in-law(ie close family) but not in public.
    But now that she is older my mother-in-law says she is too old to nurse which I disagree with b/c she is happy and healthy and she is still a baby.
    But I do think it is amazing how every baby has there own code word to call breastfeeding and how different they can be...they are as varied as the child theirself.

    DS named it (though not while he was still nursing. It is "boop"
    proud but exhausted working mammy to two high needs babies

    • 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.

    Family beds are awesome

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

    I usually call it "milkies".

    DS is still not that good with his speech so when it comes out it sounds like ''Nasties". LOL.

    My dh says it also sounds a bit like "Nestles" which he thinks was highly amusing.

    Recently, I've been calling it "boobies" which was clearly a mistake b/c DS can pronounce that very clearly and loudly.

    We have 2 beautiful children: Luana who's 9 y/o, had breastmilk for 2 years and is smart as a whip. Lucas who came out kickin', is 4 y/o and continues to enjoy his milkies.
