Names given by children for BreastfeedingThere are 32 entries in this glossary.
Every time I offer up my breast for a meal, I ask my one year old son, "would you like to nurse?". His response is a NURSING GIGGLE! I am confident he will call it nurse when he can.
|Gigig / Ham||
Robert, almost three, calls it "gigig", which is the way he used to pronounce drinky - which I used to describe breastfeeding, and a cup was a drink - "gig". Now his speech is clearer, we still refer to breastfeeding as "gigig" as no one know what he is asking for apart from his immediate family - thus eliminating any embarrassment on my part! He did go through phase of calling it "ham" as he liked ham so much that anything that was tasty was called ham!
Nine and a half years ago when I nursed my first son we came up with Gluggie when he was about 9 and a half months old. I just gave birth to my second child also a son and it''s funny how old habits come back to you because every time my husband or oldest have the knew baby and they think it is time for me to nurse they always say something on the lines of do you want your Gluggie to the baby so I think and hope the new baby also calls it his Gluggie. I hope you can add this to your list and enjoy.
|Goo / Num-num||
My first daughter called it "Goo"...short for Good Juice. My second daughter calls it "Num-num".
