Kids ask a lot of questions and I have always been on the ‘tell them the truth’ path with as much information as they want to know. I am a parent who doesn’t believe in ‘tricking’ the kids about Santa or the tooth fairy (my husband has different ideas though) and I believe in giving them correct information for body parts and all that jazz.

When it comes to pregnancy and childbirth I have already begun to answer some of my kids questions. They know that the baby grows in mom’s uterus which will look like her stomach as she gets bigger. They haven’t really asked too many questions yet, though they do know that mommy and daddy are trying to make another baby.

This weekend my kids spent a few hours with their grandma and not two minutes after I dropped them off I get a text from my mom, “OMG. They just asked me how babies were made.” I died laughing and told her that if she was uncomfortable explaining, she could just ask them to talk to me when I go and pick them up.

They never did, but I know that question will circle around again sooner than later, so I want to be prepared to answer without totally grossing them out (they are only 6, 5, and 3-years-old). So, I have been doing some research and came across some books that seem to explain the whole process just for kids.

Here areĀ 6 books for children that explain pregnancy and birth:
