  • Privates. Why should it have a cute little name? I mean...calling it a vagina wouldn't be what I would teach a little girl yet but I don't want to go around talking to her about her cookie either. That just seems silly to me. Maybe I'd call it her pee pee but that would be the only other name I'd give it.

  • Vagina would be a good place to start.

  • I know lots of moms opt for vagina - but you can't actually see your vagina without a mirror. If you really want to use proper names, then use the proper names. She can see her labia.

  • I went with Vagina because thats what it is. I dont believe in teaching my kids cutesy names for body parts or slang of any kind. Its a Vagina not a cookie, not a foofy, not a moon, not looloo or anything else. If something ever happened I figure theyd be able to communicate effectively about their bodies.

  • at her age i would just use private part or vagina. I didnt have a girl so i dont know really what i would tell her to call it i had a little boy and am having another boy.
    He of course calls his private area his wiener or pee pee. I guess its easier if you have a boy but i would be calling it anything silly like cookie. It is what it is.
