  • I said, when the mommy and daddy love each other, the daddy helps put the baby in the mommy. No one ever questioned that.

  • I said "Girls bodies have a special nest inside them just for growing babies. People don't have eggs to keep thier babies safe while they are growing like birds do so babies stay inside thier mommies body until they are big enough to come out".

    I had a c-section so it was easy for me to show him my scar and say the the Dr. gave me a special shot so it wouldn't hurt, then he cut my belly open, took you out, and sewed me back up.

  • Actually we just told him there was a baby in my tummy and he never asked how he got there or why... lol Lucky us. Then one day he just said, "the doctor has to get my baby brother out?" and I said, "yes she does." Again that was the end of it. Apparently he didn't really care about specifics. lol

  • my 4 year old never asked,. she just knows hes inmy belly. my 8 year old on the other hand when i was pregnant with my four year old asked alot of questions. she asked how she was going to get out, how she got in there, i just kept as simple as possible until she asked if she could come with me when the baby came out. then i had her watch a video at that point she said she never wanted to see that again.
