What’s a tummy button for?

Why don’t men have babies?
Because you have to have a thing inside you called a uterus which is where the baby grows. You also have to have a vagina so that the baby can come out. Men don’t have these things.

Can I have a baby with daddy (mummy)?
No, mummies and daddies have babies together but brothers and sisters and parents and their children mustn’t have babies together because the babies might not be normal.

Anyway, its best to have a baby with someone you’re married to and you can’t marry your mummy (daddy) or brother (sister).
