Anyone else have a nickname for their LO that they really wish they never started??

As soon as my dd was born 12 weeks ago I started referring to her as a 'squirm worm'....12 weeks later it's evolved to WORMS. LOL. I'm serious. My dh calls her that MIL is mortified that we are calling our beautiful baby "worms"!! It's so bad now that I feel funny calling her by her real name!!! (Tessa). I gotta stop this now before it's too late!!!!!!

  • I call my son "tiny face" or "sweety bugs". Most of the time it's "bugs". He knows what I mean but it will have to stop when he gets older....Moms just aren't cool with baby nicknames. My son is going into 2nd grade and he put his hand on my shoulder, let out the largest sigh and informed me what "the rules" are for nicknames around his new friends. My big guy, what a wonder he is.

  • LOL My son loved to kick (like most babies) when he was excited at 3-4 months, so I'd call him my kickin' chickin,' then started calling him my chicken! I've gotten better about it, haha.

  • I'm glad not to be the only one with "butt" in it! I called my son Monkey Butt for awhile there, and had to practice NOT saying the but part! I just know he would hate me fore it later. Now it's just Monkey, my hubby calls him Monkey Pants.

  • The day after my daughter was born, my little brother randomly and for no reason called my daughter Wiggles (she was on meds for seizures that made her sleep almost constantly and had so many tubes attached that they wrapped her in a special holder to keep her still so she wouldn't pull anything out so she barely moved. She was definately not "wiggly") and it stuck. I HATED it at first but now i think it's really cute and I love it. I call her 'Wiggle Butt' and 'Wiggle Bug'. Uncle still calls her Wiggles more often than he calls her by her real name!
