    We use girl bits and boy bits in our house too. Our eldest DD is not yet 4.

    We refer to all genitalia in our house as a peepee. It's just what both hubby and I have always called them.

    I feel no shame at all, but I am uncomfortable calling them by their full names to a baby/toddler. I really don't know why. I will have no trouble telling them what they are when it feels less 'ooky'. But for now, peepee is what we are comfortable with. (ds3, dd15 months)

    We just always called them bits.... We knew what the proper words were, but it seemed easier to talk about them (IMO) when calling them bits...

    This thread has made me realize that although we correct names, we could never use the two most common names for pen.is because doodle is very close to our last name and dhs nick name and willy is common child mispronunciation of dd's name

    In our house they could be called anything. We use all the names interchangeably with no shame. They are what they are.

    Our house is a mixture of english and afrikaans. DS is only 9 months old but we already refer to his bits in the afrikaans word for it just sounds cuter than saying "Awww look, he's playing with his penis!"

    Ooo great idea, we are in a bilingual hse aswell! We will teach both English and Dutch names for it and let her decide what she wants to call it!

    I don't think it matters if its the 'correct' name or NN as long as the child knows that asking questions is not a taboo subject or something to be ashamed of. We use a mix of all the 'correct' names and some common nicknames.
