    England slangs? Or dialects?

    1) neffy-pooh = ?

    From Harry Potter (The Chamber of Secrets):

    Is that my Dudders?
    Is that my little neffy-pooh?


    ----------------------

    2) windy-wandy = ?
    3) Rippy-pippy-pooh = ?

    From Harry Potter (The Chamber of Secrets):

    A little drop of brandy-brandy windy-wandy for Rippy-pippy-pooh.

    This sounds like baby talk to me- is the first 'nephew'? If so, then it's baby talk.
