Hi. DD is 3.5 and just in last couple of weeks has discovered her clitoris etc Embarassed and keeps messing about, poking and looking. I know it's just natural curiosity. But I don't know how to answer if she actually asks the question 'what is it?' HELP! And what do you call it? When I was a kid it was referred to as 'tuppence' lol but I cant stand the word so would prefer not to use it!

My mum always just called it my "front bum" lol funny thinking about it now lol i'm sure it was also referred to as my "wee bum" on occasion too lol (as in little, not as in wee wee lol)

All she needs to know for now is that its for doing pees. I don't think theres much need for going into great detail at this stage x

I call it a 'ninnie' Laughing Embarassed

For now I agree with Jenna, just tell her thats where her wee-wee comes out of. My LO asked me a few weeks ago because she was touching herself in the bath and I just said that was where wee-wee came from, it worked because she then said "and poo comes out of my bum"..

I think theres plenty of time yet before we actually have to start on the ins and outs of her lady bits.

Sam calls hers her 'bum', I think cause I always say wipe your bum when she is on the toilet.

I have just explained she has 2 bums, one at the front for wee, and one at the back for poo.

Although embarrassing when she tells people mommy has a hairy bum Embarassed

thanks everyone. lucycherish this also crossed my mind after something similar happened to me last month. I had taken her in to the public toilets (one of them automated ones, but luckily one kept to a high clean standard lol) and er, shall I say, I was on day 2 of period and had a very unexpected big problem Embarassed (sorry!) I had no option to change and clean up with her in the cubicle with me, I couldn't send her out on her own! She kept saying mummy why is your bottom bleeding? I was mortified when we found her dad afterwards and she told him while we were walking down the busy street. Yuk

emmie02 I also say to leave your bits alone. Will start saying 'front bum' too now.

Luckily she hasn't yet asked more questions.
