She's not yet 2, and according to her, she has a baby in her belly. You see, she was looking through Mothering magazine and saw a picture of a pregnant mama. She asked me about it and I told her that a baby is growing in that mama's belly. She looked at the pregnant mama's belly, then at her own. They matched. She announced, in her not-yet-two way, "Baby in MY belly! Come out mine belly button!" (We then had a little discusson as to how a baby actually gets out of the mama's belly!) She now announces to everyone that she has a baby in her belly (and sometimes whispers that it will come out her "agina").<br><br>
Any other cute toddler stories...or any other "pregnant" toddlers out there?

OMG - that is so precious! I love cute stories like that! As far as I know my toddler has never been "pregnant" (which is good, since he's a boy! LOL), but he does nurse his babies. It's so cute to see - he'll lift his shirt up and hold one of his dolls up to his chest and say "Baby hungry - baby need milk" Then when he's done he usually cradles the doll in his arms and say "Shhhh....baby sleeping".<br>
He also changes his dolls diapers and makes them "poop in the potty"! He has an amazing imagination!

My dd did that when I was preggo with her sister - she was 2. Now she is 3 1/2 and like to put dolls and/or stuffed animals up her shirt and pretend she's preggo. The only thing is she is ALWAYS expecting triplets. I have no clue where she got this idea, but its pretty funny. I love to hear the names she picks out too.

We were going somewhere with my mom & I was talking about my pregnancy. DS anounced from his carseat "Wowand pwegnant, too!" I said "Roland, do you know what pregnant means? ... Pregnant is when a baby is growing inside you" He said "No! No baby in ME!!!" ... completely horrified!!! I think maybe he thought saying it had made it true? I'd talked about the baby in my belly, and he knows he's getting a baby brother or sister... I guess I just hadn't used that term with him before...

Not a pregnant toddler, but DS likes to put the boppy pillow on his lap, pull up his shirt, and "nurse" his stuffed animals!

My dd, 30 months, is currently pregnant with "baby elmo". <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/wink1.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="wink1"><br>
I'm 21 wks along w/ this pregnancy, and Hannah calls my baby "baby cookie", which has now stuck and everyone calls him/her that. Hannah talks about her baby elmo often, tells me when he kicks, and uses her play stethescope to listen to his heartbeat, like we get to do at the OBs office. I'm taking this all as a good sign of her acceptance and adjustment to her upcoming role as the big sister. She seems to get the idea that babies come out the "'gina", but she thinks the belly button is like the intercom unit. She'll talk to baby cookie, but only through my belly button.

When my 2.5 year old discovered her navel she was concerned that something had happened to her, so I explained to her that was how she ate when she was in mommy's tummy. Now all her "babies" get shoved under her clothes with their mouths pressed to her navel so they can "eat in their mommy's tummy" too.

My older DS was constantly pregnant when I was pg. with DS#2. He gave birth at least once a day while I played "midwife". I thought it was cute, but he'll probably be horrified if I repeat the story in years to come . . .

Oh yes, Dd is "pregnant," has been pregnant on and off for quite awhile. I'm skinny, and she has seen pictures of me pregnant and likens her rounded belly to my artistic belly shots. The baby is low down in her "uterus" "eating through it's belly button like I did before I was born," and will "pop out."<br><br>
Dd is excited about summer clothes without sleeves, because her clothes must have "openings" like the nursing tops I generally wear, so that she can "croodle (our word for nurse) my babies."<br><br>
Everything I do for her, like if I make some special thing she's asked for to eat, she tells me how she has also done this for her baby.
