    We use the proper names. I don't really get the need for nicknames, you wouldn't adopt a nickname for your elbow for instance....or maybe people do I'm not sure. Anywho, we use the actual names here.... penis, leg, ankle, arm etc etc

    Penis, testicles, vaginas and vulvas in this house. Collectively they are known as private parts or if I'm reminding him to wash himself I say something like "wash your bits".
    Undies too - both for DD and DS.

    We use proper names. The other day we were at the shops and ds was looking at hair clips. Dd then said "you are not a girl you don't have a vagina"!

    We use the correct terms also - I don't want my kids to grow up being embarrassed to use the correct names if that makes sense. My almost 3 yr old DS laughed his head off in the shower recently, saying "Mummy has a hairy penis" lol. So he now knows that girls have vaginas.

    For some unknown reason we just call front and back a "bottom" at this point. DD is 3 so should probably learn about the various genitals but its just never come up in conversation. She hasn't shown interest in anyone's bits yet (doesn't ask questions if she she's us nude etc). Hasn't noticed a difference between males and females (or if she has she's never mentioned it or asked).

    Now you've got me thinking whether to bring it up or wait til she asks questions.

    Help please!!??
    We say penis. Though with an older boy now in school, doodle and willy have been introduced. They all know that the proper name for it is a penis.

    We just say undies for all of us. I live in a male dominated house, no knickers for this mama
