    It's so difficult to traslate it for me.
    There're a lot of slangs.

    How can I traslate "neffy poo"?

    Thanks,
    Alessio

    Nipotino adorato could be a translation if neffy means nephew, as I suppose.

    I think so.

    I didn't know "poo" is "adorato". Anyway..

    Poo doesn't equal adorato in the sense of a direct transaction. But's it is a form of affectionate "baby-talk" that might be conveyed as adorato in Italian. ;)

    Good catch, Erika!

    I don't think it is I think is a "gioco di parole" miming Winnie the Pooh! Pooh has also been extended to mean teddy bear if I'm not getting wrong...
