  • Mine said "mih mih" and did the sign for milk. She'd also sometimes try to pull down my shirt.

  • I would imagine it depends on the toddler.

  • Mine would have said. I want to nurse. Or whatever he would call it. LIke when he was that age and wanted his pacifier, he would say I want my fo-fo.

  • Mine said "nurse". Of course, it sounded more like "nuwse"

  • My DD says hungry. She's said some variation of this since she was 4 months old.

  • I nursed my daughter until she was 2 and from about 8 or 9 months on she said "ni ni" but by about 18 months she was only nursing at night and when she was upset so the fact that she wanted to nurse was a given. LOL.

    My son is 9 months. He calls is "nu nu."

    Both of them came up with their own words. LOL. I wanted my kids to call it "nur nur" but they had different ideas.
