My baby turned 9 months on Christmas.  She is EBF and I am planning to let her self ween.  So what do you call it when they want to nurse?  My sister said she never said anything to her daughter, but i feel like there should be a name for it or something.

We call it nursing.  ;)

My son (who's almost 3) sees his sister nursing and goes "Brianna is nursing?"  Doesn't bother me.  But then, we don't do a whole lot of "nicknames" for things.

Same here, I say nursing or simply feeding the baby.

I forgot exactly when it happened, but my DD came up with "nah-nah" all on her own.

I've heard it called having nursies or having booboos.  You could just ask if she wants milk.

MY son signed milk in sign language before he named it "butties".  He tought my nipples were milk buttons so he still at 32 months calls them butties.

My husband is from Mexico & "chi chi" is another word for breasts so we've always called it "chi chi time".  My son is 29 month & in the process of weaning.  It's really cute when he comes up to me & asks "chi chi time? please!".

 If I can remember correctly my son called it "nah nums", but the girls just say "boob". Usually it's "mama I want boob please" lol.

When I was little I called them my "boobles".

My boys don't nurse anymore, but when they did, and still they just call in Momma's milky.

They nursed until they were 3 years 3 months and 2 years 4 months, so yeah, that is what we called it. They are cute though, they still have their stuffed animals sometimes need mommas milky and just bring them up stick them to my boob for a few seconds and thats it :) Kids are so cute
