Re: "How does the baby come out of your belly?"

I've always told my kids (5 and 2) that the baby comes out of mommy's vagina and grows in mommy's womb which is near the stomach. There are lots of educational videos and books for kids to help them learn about it in real terms.

Re: "How does the baby come out of your belly?"

I just told my daughter that the baby comes out of a woman's v*gina. She was a little surprised and has asked me about it again but it doesn't appear that it was a big deal for her. In fact today she asked me if the baby comes out feet first and I told the head comes out first as it is the largest part on a newborn baby.

All went well! It was funny because DD was worried that I would have a big hole left in my tummy when the baby came out...so I think she feels better now!

I told my 2.5 year-old the other day where babies come out. She kept saying that Micah came out of my belly button, so I just told her the truth. She didn't seem fazed.

Yup, I just told my 3.5 year old last night that the baby will come out of mommy's 'gina. She looked at it for a minute (we were in the bathroom together) and then seemed content. Her biggest concern of the night was if I would let her brush her own teeth, she was unfazed.

Comes out of the vagina.

You can also find youtube videos of birth - my DS found them interesting when he was 4 and it helped normalize the whole process.

See, I am all for the truth too but I won't lie. I have been avoiding telling my 6 and 4 year old DS's how baby sister will come out. I swear my 6 year old will give a lesson to his class afterwards. *dies*

I like the three holes idea. We try to always tell the truth. When DD asked me I told her the dr cuts the tummy to get the baby out (all my births were vaginal). Well, the following days/weeks, she would tell me she didn't want to have any kids. I asked her why and she said because she doesn't want to be cut. I felt bad. So I told her that i didnt get cut and there is another way the baby comes out but that I would tell her when she is older. I was thinking it might traumatize her to know at her age (5). But, maybe not. I guess I put it in the same category as sex and she's definitely not ready to learn about that.
