“Mama, I want some milk.”
As I look at my daughter, my ever-growing and ever-learning little bean, it becomes ever more apparent that she is no longer the baby I once cradled in my arms. Her baby-squidge is being replaced by cheekbones and her proportions are slowly but surely becoming more child-like. Gone are the days where all she had to do was turn her head to root for milk, or a little later, drum my chest with a knowing smile. She has words now and she isn’t afraid to use them.
So when I asked on my Facebook page about the names that other nurslings have for breast milk, the following gems (among others) brought nothing but smiles to my day...
1. "Mine" - Enough said.
2. "Muk" - Cow’s milk is “muk on da table”.
3. "Drinkles" - Cuteness.
4. "Eats" - Solid food is “bites”.
5. "Side" - Accurate.
6. "Nice Nice" - Because it is.
7. "Buddy" - Everybody needs a friend.
8. "My Booby" - See number 1.
9. "Milkies" - The familiar.
10. "Mama Milk" - The original.
