When I was pregnant my daughter was 4yrs old at the time and she asked me how the baby got in my tummy. As I was trying to figure out what to tell her she goes "ah ha, I know how the baby got in your tummy!" Well I was curious to know what her answer was to her question, so I asked her how the baby got there. Being the adorible little 4yr old she was she tells me "the baby crawled up your arm and into your mouth and down into your belly!" I didnt know what to say to that and still didnt know how I was going to answer her question so I left it at that. I still dont know how I would answer that question. But now I dont have to worry about it for a little while so I still have time to think about the answer!

i also have sed to all of mine that when a mummy and daddy are cuddling up in bed this is when it happens..it satisfies their curiosity for a couple of years!! my twins are also 5 and have been asking about what their testicles are there for lol so i said thats wehre their seeds are untill they are a grown up..and girls have eggs in there tummy ready for when they are grown up..just waiting for the next question now..but how do they get IN there??? lol my 9 year old girl heard the details in school..so i just said yes that right.and she left it at that.if your just relaxed about it and are honest, dont be embarrased ...they will be fine.
When my daughter was 6 I was pregnant and I knew that will have to explain to her how did I get pregnant. She knew already that babies grow in mommy's tummy (she has learned that in kindergarten). So I went and bought a book for children where every thing is explained through a story where a boy her age will get a baby sister and is asking the same question. It worked out grate. Just be honest with him bcs sooner or later he will find out the truth.

my daughter was 3 when she asked that (i was pregnant with my second) and then asked how it would get out. i told her that the doctor helped put the baby there and the doctor will help get the baby out. that satisfied her curiosity enough!
