Nursing or breastfeeding?

Any preferences on terms?  There is something about the term “nursing” I prefer so I have started to use it more often.  I felt a lot of pressure to “breastfeed”, but somehow when I thought of it as nursing it seemed more informal, more relaxed, less my child’s health hangs in the balance.  Anyone else have reactions to these terms?
