    Default terms of breastfeeding endearment?

    So...do you have any cute breastfeeding related words or phrases? We call my son a:

    Squirmy wormy, esp. when he's wriggly and active at the breast.
    Bed Shark, when he's looking round for a snack (we co-sleep), since he opens his mouth and swings it from side to side.
    Nipple Monster, when he's in the middle of a taxing cluster feed.

    Got any others?

    My son was often "Milky-Mouth Michael" -- especially when he reached the blissed-out "not-another-drop-it's-just-sooooo-goood" point.

    We don't have any - but I love the term "bed shark" because I have this mental picture of my little guy doing the exact same thing as your description.

    Whenever my baby cries, my three-year-old says, "MOM! HAYDEN NEEDS A BOOBER!!"

    I LOVE "bed shark!!!" My DS does that too.

    Tonight I was doing the dishes when my older DS said "Mom, Jackson told me he wants the booh-bah." I asked him how he could have done that since he can't talk and DS replied "Well he's just crying a whole lot. It's really loud and I want him to eat your nipple and be quiet."

    It was kinda mean but so funny at the same time...

    How funny! We call my DS a squirm worm too. And he definitely does that bed shark thing, though we never had a name for it! I think it's super cute when he does that.

    Very cute how the older kids name nursing too!

    I call DD a "squiggle worm" sometimes. Cross between squirm and wiggle.

    We call my dd the
    milk tick because she latches on like a tick and then falls off when full.

    I love the term 'bed shark' that's so cute, we co-sleep too and I can picture my little one doing the same thing.

    Our term is "milk belly" that's when DS has nursed himself into complete nirvana . . . you know when you lift their little arm and it just drops because they're so out of it and with milk all over their face.
