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

I don't know, I must be the only one but I don't really like the "three holes" idea. I guess I think of even women having two holes - the vaginal opening is essentially one opening to me, I don't want my kid(s) thinking women (girls) have three actual holes because to me, there are two holes. The one of course contains the urinary opening as well but it's still in the same hole.

I plan to go with "baby comes out of moms vagina" when my kids are old enough for this talk.

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

The truth. As adults we sometimes feel awkward talking about vaginas with our kids because we know there's also a sexual component to vaginas. But for kids, they have no idea. A vagina is just a body part to them, just like their fingers or toes or nose. At that age they aren't going to ask how the baby got in there, and you don't have to explain that (yet!). So they will accept the answer of "the baby comes out of mommy's vagina" just as easily as they would accept that the stork brings the baby, or that mommy's poop the baby out, or whatever else you'd consider telling the kid.

Women have an anus, a urinary hole and a vaginal hole. Your urine comes out of a hole above your vaginal opening right below the clitoris. They are not the same hole at all...

Thank you. I was trying to find a polite way to say this.

The vaginal opening does not "contain" the urinary opening. Your urine does not come out of your vaginal canal. Women do have "three actual holes", although I will say that I did not realize this until my early 20's.

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

I have told my kids the "where babies come from" story from the get-go. In fact, my boys, at ages, 20 mo, almost 2, 2, and almost 3 at homebirths and they were fine.

Please get a mirror and check out your anatomy (really, not being snarky or funny). Everyone should be comfortable with their body and know how it works.

Your kids (and you) should think women have three openings because that is the truth. Your urethra does not open up into your vagina--the holes are very much separate.

I'm not really suer why some feel the need to correct my personal opinion. IMHO there are two openings down there, and I do have mirrors thanks. those "lips" are one big opening despite there being various things going on down there. As I said, baby comes from vagina. How is that confusing?

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

I told my stepsons and bio son when he asked, that a doctor helps. None of them where ready for the whole girls have vagina talk yet, as they got older we gave them more accurate anwsers. However, if your kids are ready, just be honest with them. You can't go wrong w/ telling the truth.
