My son, almost 4 years old, is going to be a big brother in June 2011. He's very excited to have a new baby (we think) and is very curious about everything. My husband and I have been very open about him asking questions because we want him to understand what's going to happen. He comes to most of the prenatal appointments and was there (with Daddy) for the 20 week ultrasound.
On two separate occasions he has asked me 'how did the baby get into your tummy?' and I don't know how to respond to him other than, 'what do you think?' which is followed by, 'you bought the baby and put it in there to grow'
What should I tell him without sounding too scary or technical?
