My 16 month old has learned almost all body part, and is starting to point to more and look for names - so far we have not named her 'private' area - although she points to ask.
My feeling is that she should know the real names rather than just calling the whole area her vagina - seeing as there are different parts to be named, labia, vulva etc.
She already know the difference between her knee, her shin and her ankle, so she understand there are different parts to one body area, and I do not think it would confuse her a lot.
How do you/did you go about this with your daughter? Did you give it just a general name 'vagina', or a nickname like 'front bum', or did you teach her the proper names for it?
