Names given by children for BreastfeedingThere are 32 entries in this glossary.
My daughter who was breastfed until 2 1/2 yrs. old called it her "nee-nee naw nees".
My two babes call breastfeeding "ni-ni" which is milk in babytalk Chinese ... this secret code only backfires on us when we go to a Chinese restaurant or other places "Chinese" ... but usually I just get an understanding nod and smile. Many country folk in China still breastfeed their babies, carry their babies, and sleep with them, and consider their precious treasure a 24 hour affair ... as soon as they are old enough (to go to school) kiddies have to start pulling some of their own. After four our five generations here in Canada, "modern city life" prevails, all is forgotten, and we'll unfortunately get a rap on the knuckles for spoiling our babes ;-(rnSam breastfed for 18 months and gave up his ni-ni for his "moi-moi" baby sister. Kate is still drinking "this side, or that side ni-ni, or wet ni-ni" at 19 months plus.
My DS is only 6 months old but we around the house have referred to it as Ninny.
|Num-num / Goo||
My first daughter called it "Goo"...short for Good Juice. My second daughter calls it "Num-num".
That is what my Nellie used to call it.
My first DD (now 3.5 yrs) nursed until 20 months; she called it nur-nur. My 2nd DD (now 12.5 mths) still nursing, also calls it nur-nur.
|Nursies / Nee||
My daughter is 14 months old and does not call it "nursies", but shortens it to "nee". Maybe I'm the only one who thinks this is sweet!! :)
