Breastfeeding Baby Doll Arrives in U.S. Markets
Deciding whether or not to breastfeed is a decision every new mother makes, but should little girls playing mommy be able to mimic breastfeeding, too?

One company, Berjuan Toys, certainly thinks so and plans to release its toy doll "The Breast Milk Baby" in the United States this spring.

<snip>

The dolls come with a breastfeeding halter top that activates a suckling response from the doll when placed in contact with the chest area. They also emit a cry when they need to be burped.

2. I like it. I'ved nursed two wonderful children. It is the way we were built.
It's better than "Betsy Wetsy." She drank from a baby bottle and peed.

3. i wonder if this would make that generation of kids less likely
to oppose breastfeeding in public compared when they are older compared to right now.

they wouldn't see it as something a woman should do in private or hide. it's just a mother feeding the baby.
