What do you call breastfeeding when talking to LO?

    I have a few silly things I say to LO.

    I often sing Ace of Base's 'All That She Wants', saying 'All Toby wants is another milkies'.

    When asking if he is hungry, I always refer to it as his 'milch'.

    When getting ready, I say 'Milk for Martin' (He isn't a martin!).

    Is it just me who does this?

    I just say "milkers". The little monster has just started 'seeing' the nipple now. If I whip one out ready to feed him he stares at it and starts jiggling about getting excited. He hates Infacol and screams like I'm pouring acid down his throat when I give it to him but today I've done it with every feed and now when he gets it he just makes a face as he swallows it and then stares expectanctly at my boob. It's amazing how clever they are at 6 weeks, lol.

    We've always just said 'Milkie' but we also always do the Sign for it so now when Poppy wants it either first thing in the morning or at night she just does the milk sign and I know she wants her milkie :)
