Im pregnant for the third time :-) and my oldest is 5, almost 6, and is very intestested this time around about this pregnancy (she was only 2.5 when her brother was born). Every week we read the week by week pregnancy book and i show her the picure of how big the baby is that week. And of course the question 'how did this baby start' came ip. Ive tried to answer it accuratly without sugar coating it too much but shea only five and I dont want to give away too much information. How do I properly answer this question while still keeping it accurate anf age appropriate?

Obviously you re not gonna tell her the truth, When I was a kid my mother used to tell me that children comes by a ship or planted in a plant. I never believed her cause I saw big tummies. I used to think that babies grow inside tummies naturally. I think that's the nearly truth. hope i helped a bit.
