What is the food for babies when they are inside the mother's stomach?

Although the baby is in the mothers tummy, it is not in the stomach, it is in a special place that ladies have beside their stomach called a 'womb'. In the womb the growing baby is attached to the mother by what is called an umbilical cord and placenta. These allow the baby and mother to share the food in her blood and this is how the growing baby gets its food (and oxygen from the air). If you look at your tummy you will have a little button in it called the navel. This is where your umbilical cord was attached to you when you were a growing baby.
