Term Definition
Baa Baa

My baby Edek, calls it baa baa! you know, like the sound a baby lamb makes! He is now 2 1/2.

Baboo

My three year old calls it "baboo".

Boo

My daughter always left the consonants off the ends of her words, hence it became just "boo." She nursed until she was 3 1/2. She still calls it "boo" when she watches her baby brother nurse. PS: Great website!

Boos / Boo Juice

My daughter who after hearing people call them boobs would say that to her baby sister who would then call them her boos and boo juice.

Brrmm brrmm / Booboo

Lizzie (who is now 5 and now fascinated with the fact she used to get milk from my boo boos (still calls them that and calls it booboo milk as opposed to normal milk), started calling it brrrm brrm brrrm brrm (sounded like a car imitation) at about 5 months and later went on to booboo . I used to ask her if she wanted more booboo when she was little - I guess brrrrm brmm was the best a 5 month old could do (I was mumumumum at the time).

Dar

My nearly-three-year-old Daniel calls my milk and my breasts "dar" and breastfeeding is "Daniel having dar". He started talking a bit late and used to point to things saying "dar" and ended up meaning milk or breast quite often. He has a list of places for "having dar" which he likes to recite e.g. dar-home, dar-park, dar-shopping, dar-school, dar-chair, dar-bed, dar-movies etc etc.

Doe

Our 21 month old daughter began asking to nurse by saying "Doe". We've tried to get her to say Milk but she still says Doe. She tries to say milk by saying Moke but that is only after we correct her on the Doe request.

giggling noises

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!

Gluggie

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".

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!

Mammie Drinken

I just saw your webpage and Mummy''s Drink mentioned. Saskia, my youngest, started out using a sign, she''s thump herself on the chest, like a monkey. Then she started calling it "dinke" (she speaks Dutch) and finally "Mammie drinken", until she weaned at around 3.5. She still regularly speaks lovingly of her memories of "mammie drinken" and sometimes mentions it''s too bad there is no more left.

Mee-mar / Milkies

Mee-mar - I called it milkies when talking about it to my second son. As he began to talk, he took over the word and made it his own. Now we all talk about mee-mar - useful when in public!

Meemees

My daughter called them Meemees - made it up from what we don't know! and we call them that for the second baby.
