What are your kid's names for breastfeeding?

My daughter used to call it nurses. She'd point to my breast and go, "nurses" now she goes, "I want to, mama."

  • LOL..I was going to ask this in PPB!! Amelia says " I want that!" and when she switches, she says " I want this!" This and That...hahaha. Yesterday she just started saying "ready." This is because my husband always says " She is sooooooooo ready for booby-time"

  • My daughter has always called it momma milk or just milk. She learned how to sign milk at around 5 months.
    My son is 9 months old and he also uses the sign for milk when he wants to nurse, along with his other cues.
