Discovery of "boo-boo" in English

It seems that when Viola Naia hurts herself and wants to call attention to the fact, she babbles "bwa-bwa" or "bwoo-bwoo". No doubt other babies in times prior to mine did this thus we have "boo-boo" for an ouchie. I still prefer the babble my father taught me: "Mother f-ing son of a god d--n b---h!"
