Breast Milk Baby doll teaches young girls how to breastfeed
Is there such a thing as being too young to learn to breast-feed?
The Breast Milk Baby doll, from Berjuan Toys, is specifically designed to teach little girls how to breast-feed an infant and learn about the bond between mother and child.
Along with the baby doll, the Breast Milk Baby comes with a special cloth top for the youngster to wear. The shirt has flowers painted on it to illustrate where the nipple is and where the girl should guide the doll's mouth to suckle.
The goal of the doll is to spread the message that breast-feeding is a positive health choice for the child – a message that one is never too young to learn, according to the company press release.
"The Breast Milk Baby will revolutionize our nation's attitudes to good infant health, while letting little girls share in the wonder and magic of motherhood," the company writes on its website.
"The Breast Milk Baby lets young girls express their love and affection in the most natural way possible, just like mommy!"
The Berjuan toy company is located in Spain and sells a number of baby dolls as well as the Breast Milk Baby.
The Spanish-language version of the doll, Bebe Gloton, has been available since 2009.
