to hate the term "booby juice" and other BF equivalents?

What's wrong with calling breast milk breast milk? There seems to be an obsession with giving it a crunchy (hate that term as well), hip alternative name. Recent ones include:

boob/y juice
mummy milk
vanilla lemonade (WTH!?)

Am I alone on this? (BTW I am very pro BF, just don't see the need to give funky names for it)

loving the 'breastaurant'.

Also had a friend with twins who referred to his wife as 'becoming ambi-breastrous' which apparently meant able to feed simultaneously from both breasts.

3yo DD calls it mummy milk because it's different to cow milk. 14mo DS just calls it "Miiiiih" with much pointing. grin I just call it my milk.

I wouldn't defriend anyone who used any of the other terms, but I would take the piss out of them!

Really can't believe people call having sex "baby dancing", that's just disgustingly twee. Loving "breastaurant" haha!

Don't get me started on potty training details on fb.

I have honestly witnessed photo uploads of a proud fathers DS's first bowel movements in a potty.

I only have two friends with kids on fb - I swear to god if either ever upload a picture of a shit in a potty I WILL delete. What the hell is wrong with people?!

I looked after a little boy who kept asking me for "booby juice" I spoke to his mum when she came home and said I didn't realise he was still breastfeeding and did she want me to give him some expressed milk, it turns out he stopped breastfeeding at 6 months and he was actually asking for "blueberry juice."

My ds is only 3 months old so his way of asking for milk is headbutting the shoulder of whoever is holding him. DP calls my boob "the milk bar" and when I feed Ds dp sayd "the milk bar is open" I must tell him to stop before ds picks it up and copies him!

DS2 calls it booby. You know when he's tired because he starts to whine for booby and it's kind of mixed into other words so he might ask for "stai-ooby" which is go upstairs and have his nighttime feed!

DS used to call it 'bilk' which was cute, but now it's 'feeding milk' for DD, and he drinks 'cow's milk' from a cup.

Booby juice is grim, as are any references to udders or titties.

i have a friend who refers to her 'friends from the boob group' took a while for me to realise she was referring to people she met at a Breastfeeding group.

i was too scared to ask what the boob group involved!
