What nickname do you call your child?

What nickname do you call your child

I love nicknames, I call my son a huge array of different nicknames like Sprog, Rayray, Buby, Noodlebum etc.

I was interested to know what nicknames you called your children and if it was something you did so I asked.......

So many of you responded with ridiculously cute, funny and adorable nicknames, it was such a fun thread, thank you to all of you that took part!

I particularly love how so many of them are SUPER South African too!
