Explaining how babies are made to my children has been a challenge but work in progress for me and my husband.
After the “how they were made” conversation is understood, the next step is explaining how the baby gets out of the belly.
While I am ALL for explaining how, what, when, where and why – via educational tools such as appropriate books, videos and conversation. I’m just not sure my daughter needs a toy to play “giving birth”.
Maybe for demonstration purposes? But to play with? Would you let your kids play with these? Maybe I’m just too late 90′s and haven’t summoned to the modernism of birthing babies being a thing kids play like kitchen, or school.
Not really our style. (but hey, if it’s your cup of tea – drink up!)
