So this weekend my 5 year old niece Ava asked me a question that completely threw me for a loop. She sweetly & innocently asked me “Aunty Amanda, you and Uncle Dave are married, why don’t you have any babies?”
How do I answer this?……..
I have no idea. So I looked her in the eyes and told her that Aunty Amanda has something wrong with her and the Dr’s have to help her have a baby. I don’t know that this was the right way to answer her question but it’s all I could think of at the time. Any suggestions on how to talk to children about infertility? I know that she will ask again or another of my nieces and nephews will ask.
