Right I need some advice ladies,

My daughter is nearly 2 1/2.

She knows nipples are nipples becuase quite frankly when she asks what they are what the hell am I supposed to tell her??

Now my family are in up roar because she knows what nipples are! and are suitably disgusted and think its crude!

I asked them what I should say their were then and they saud "boobs"??!! I responded by saying so what about daddy then, does he have boobs????!!!!

So come on ladies I need an alternative word to nipple! Im 21 and cant think of any!

Surely a nipple is a flaming nipple!!!

Sorry about spelling!

Am a tad stressed out and am at work so trying to type without being caught!

You don't need anything.
Your family need to get a grip.

silly people your family! What a load of boobs... smile

How odd.

nipples are nipples and are on the end of your boobs.

Your DH has nipples too.

Am all for calling penises willies but nowt wrong with a nipple.

What do they suggest you call them?

Nipple is a dirty word?! No, its a perfectly useful word, medical or otherwise, to describe a part of your anatomy!

Sorry, but I don't particularly like "boobs" or "boobies" - don't object to someone else using it, but fine. Just don't see what's wrong with nipples, myself.

Hear hear Tinytim, my son is 3 and knows they're nipples. Daddy has them and so does he, but neither have b00bs - well.. Daddy has manb00bs but that's another thread!!!

PMSL I agree with VS and Majeika

Nipples are nipples I have never heard of them being called anything else. Your family are strange.

CaptainKarvol Mon 22-Dec-08 14:03:41

The ONLY other thing I can think of is 'nips'. Not a lot different, really! Your family are being very strange!

! the anti nipple brigade hahaha. do they have little skirts for the table so it doesn't show its legs?

i believe the literal translation of the german for nipple is breastwart, would they like that? what is french for nip?

Majeika Mon 22-Dec-08 14:04:45



pipples?? hmm

My 5 year old daughter calls nipples "poppers" though god knows how or why she came up with this as we have always called them nipples - and why shouldn't we ?! What's crude about that ?

Nipple is a perfectly acceptable word .... the only alternative I can think of is "teat" and IMO that sounds awful and suggests you are a female dog or similar.

catsmother Mon 22-Dec-08 14:06:43

The French for nipple is 'mamelon'. Apparently.

scarlotti Mon 22-Dec-08 14:10:05

Mama's mamelons!! ROFL!

Is that where the term melons came from - ha ha ha!
