    Default What Do You Call A Dummy In Your House?

    Following on from Min and her Nonny, I thought it would be interesting to see what others call it. In our house we call it a pipe, I have no idea why either.

    What do you call it and why (if you know)?

    we called it a dummy too - but he gave it up when he was 6 mths so probably doesn't count cause it never underwent baby translation

    We call it a dum-dum.
    My step-sister calls it a "binky" (she's American) or "pacifier".
    My friend's little girl used to call it a "Marmo" so the whole family ended up referring to it as a "Marmo". She is 2 now and says "dummy".
    My Mum sometimes calls it a "Pipe".

    Melinda - I had to laugh. We say "Hok up a gorby" instead of "Hack up a golly". Isn't it funny how one thing can be said so many ways

    LOL - I'm the worst for this. (explaination to follow)

    I call it a 'Noong Noong' or plain old dummy. The Noong Noong thing is because of the 'noise' he makes when he uses it.

    - I'm the worst, because I flatly refuse to let people teach my baby words like 'pussy cat' and 'Moo cow', yet I call the damn dummy a blipping 'Noong Noong'....I'm a bad, bad double standard mum...LOL
