Breast feeding doll

Has anyone else heard of this "breast feeding doll" coming out this year in America? What's your take on it? I personally dont see the big deal, I think it's no diff. than Mason [ my 3 years old son] watching Alex [my husband/ mason's father] shave his face and pretend to do it, it's natural &+ teaching them nurturing skills they'll use later in life anyway.

  • I am not as disturbed by it as most people.

    Moms who breastfeed their little ones and have older toddlers know that they already do this w/ dolls, copying Mama.

    Dolls at walmart, target, etc come with bottles to feed them. Well, not all babies are fed that way. So not all dolls too right?

  • I think it's about time! Every little step in the right direction of making breastfeeding a more socially acceptable thing to do!

  • I see absolutely nothing wrong with it. It is not sexual behavior. It's a natural behavior between a mother and child. What's the issue? That the child is pretending to have boobs? Well guess what? One day she WILL! Then what?
