Sometimes feeding my lo can be a little boring (massive cluster feed sessions happening) I've started calling her the beast of boobie or the boobie bandit. What do you call you hungry babe?

Professor SnoozenBoob grin glad I'm not the only one who does this!

Please tell me this isn't for real.

I'm not one for boob related nicknames, but I used to sing to DD while she ate (drank): "Hungry, hungry horse, drinking Pink Champagne, of course". I made it up, one bleary dawn and it stuck.

I quite liked Libby Purves's description of how to foster stoicism in the early days of breast-feeding, by visualising oneself as an early Christian martyr being mauled by a small but very determined lion

My dc announced newborn ds had boobie juice!! Really no need to have the official breast milk title from a dc if they choose otherwise!!

n0ne Mon 25-Sep-17 12:32:31

Whoa, I see you have a Snuffle-Pig too, OP!

RJnomore1 Mon 25-Sep-17 12:35:49

You'll all find yourselves on the 'phrases you hate on MN' thread soon if you're not careful!

I'm still feeding my 19 month old and I tell him to 'get on booby' and he always laughs and opens his mouth wide. He's a cutey 😍

Hatstand Mon 25-Sep-17 12:49:43

Almost certainly poddige, though realising that it will annoy people despite having no impact on them whatsoever makes me want to start doing it loudly and publicly.

You'll know it's me if one day you're innocently queuing in Costa and hear someone shouting 'dinner is served, lady boobington'.

I used to make up a song about his name ... I avoided saying the word boob as I did not want him to scream "booooooob!!!" When a little older.

Just a word of warning... wink

My lo has cradle cap in her brows my oh said I was off to feed the crusty bean . Oh lady boobieton! I think the names we call are generally in our head or partners atleast for me...though you would have caught me walking to lidl today singing I love boobie lol...tbh because I could!

Firstimefreaked Mon 25-Sep-17 20:58:32

Chortled at Billy Bunter!

I sometimes think of her as my demon dumpling when she's being a fuss pot.

QueenNefertitty Mon 25-Sep-17 21:06:39

Just to give the other side of this... DS (1) has started to chant "booby booby booby" over and over. Sometimes when he's sad he'll cry "boooobbbbbeeeee" very plaintively.

He was pointing at things and asking "gat? Gat? Gat?" (What's that, I'm assuming) so I was naming things the other day "bed" "book" "tree" etc etc.

In the midst of this, "DS" said I, "who am I? What am I called?" And with the biggest grin on his face, he slapped me on the chest and shouted "BOOOOOBEEEE".

This shit goes both ways.

MrsA2015 Mon 25-Sep-17 21:11:43

DD is two next month and screams out BOOOBBBBIEEE when she's tired and hungry. Anywhere and everywhere.

I can't even get annoyed with it because she also says "please" at the endgrin

We called her squishy face to begin with because of how her face would be creased up and squashed after a good feed

I used to call mine Sucky Moo.

BrutusMcDogface Mon 25-Sep-17 21:17:02

I think toddlers and older (feeding children who can talk) should maybe say "milk!" Instead of "boobie!" because I fucking hate the term boobie but that's just me!

In my circle I have friends who are feeding 3 yos and one is even feeding her reception aged child (alongside her little sister). That's 100% fine and I think each to their own, etc. But it makes me cringe when said children request boobie or are offered boobie.
