The best children’s books about how babies are made

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

And explaining how babies are made to your child, can be one of the trickiest conversations you will ever have!

Why? Because we are usually talking about sex or sexual intercourse for the first time! And that scares the pants off most parents! Myself included!

But luckily, there are some fantastic children's books about how babies are made  that will allow you to explain  this honestly (and hopefully more comfortably) to your child. 

The books listed here are all books that talk about how babies are made. Which means that they will all talk about sexual intercourse. You can find the books that don't talk about sexual intercourse in the where do babies come from book list. 

If  you are unsure about how to start talking with your child about sexual intercourse, you can find more in this blogpost about how to explain sex to kids. If you need more help, do go and have a look at my book, Let's talk about sex: How to get started and what to say to your child about sex, as it will help you to get started!

This blogpost 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 as well as IVF, surrogacy and adoption. There are books for kids from preschoolers right up to tweens.

You will only find books in this list that are readily available at bookshops today.

You can find more books about different topics in the main list of Sex Education Books for Children

And if you find this list a little overwhelming, you might want to look at the age-appropriate list of sex education books.
