I didn't have the heart to tell her about the normal way so I just told her about c-sections :/

How long do you think until I have to tell her about the other way? She was happy with just the c-section answer, so not until she's a teenager right?

To each their own. Atleast its not a lie. I personally wouldn't. Mind explaining it as I have explained to my 6 year old brother when I was pregnant. Lol.

Depends on how comfortable you are and how much truth you want her to know. Different people think no age is too young.

Well I explained to my boys that are 4&6 how they were born which is to say, via c- section. I told them that's not the way everyone comes out and they didn't ask anything else. If they'd wanted more information, I would have given it. At this age, there is no need to give more than they are asking for.

My DS asked me a few questions when I was pregnant with his baby sister. He thought that the baby came out of my belly button, and I told him that wasn't exactly right, that the mama has to push the baby out of her belly, almost like when he goes #2. (I realize that some people on CM will not like this, but *shrug*) He smirked, and said, "So you have to poop the baby out?" And I just said, "Sort of, yes." Then he wanted to know how the baby got into my belly, and that was another story for another day, lol!

Hhahahaha just take her to a farm, a zoo a state or county fair- somewhere so can watch a birth of some animal.

Or, you just say- oh there is a very special opening just for babies... they are happy with that for quite a while.

you probably made it more complicated than it needed to be. why don't you just go to the library and pick out a couple of age appropriate books?

She will be told by peers long before she becomes a teenager.
