The best children’s books about how babies are made

  • last month

For many parents,  finding some children's books about how babies are made, can make explaining a tricky subject a lot easier!

Over the years, a lot of children's books about how babies are made have been written and published. Some talk about sexual intercourse and some don't. Some are good and some are 'not so good'. 

This blgpost will show you some of my favourite books that talk about baby-making in a number of different ways. Like good ol fashioned sexual intercourse or some of the alternative ways (like IVF). You will even find books that manage to explain how a baby is made without even mentioning sex!

Sex is a funny word - Sex Education Books for Children

SPECIAL ME: FOR IVF FAMILIES by Tara Mitchell

Special Me for IVF families - Sex Education Books for Children

This beautifully illustrated book is a great resource for parents to use, when having to explain how their IVF child was made. Kids become very curious about how babies are made, and when they aren't made the 'ol fashioned' way, it is up to parents to find the right way to explain it. This book does the job beautifully, but what I really like is how special it makes it all sound - it talks about all the love and heartache that goes into a much wanted IVF baby.
It is ideal for children aged between 4-8 years of age.
