A Doll that Let's Girls Pretend to Breastfeed…Bebe Goton

take a look at a new doll from Spain…

“A Spanish toymaker known as Berjuan has developed a breast-feeding doll that comes with a special halter top its young “mothers” wear as they pretend to breast-feed their “babies.” The halter top has daisies that cover the little girls’ nipples and come undone just as easily as the flaps of a nursing bra would.”

You guessed it, this won’t be an OTP winner.  Much like the Pregnancy Doll from Mattel in the early 90s, this is more role playing than any little girl needs.

  1. I’m all for kids pretending to nurse their baby dolls. Jordyn has started doing it, having seen me nursing Tarin. This though, kind of creeps me out. Also, what happened to just letting kids pretend. Why do they need such elaborate props??

  2. I could not disagree with you more. Many children, either nursing toddlers themselves or older sibs of nurslings, nurse their babies. Exactly why do you find this less appropriate than bottles for dolls?

  3. Tara–I agree that role playing various aspects of parenting is healthy for kids…I just don’t believe you need such a specific prop. I feel the same way really about dolls that poop pretend poop.

  4. I think it is a great idea. This is how all babies used to be fed before the onset of bottles. I see no difference in this feeding doll and one with a bottle in terms of teaching life skills and role playing. After all, that is what the breasts are really designed for. My little nieces were all around when I nursed my son, and pretended to do so with their dolls. It is natural. There is no shame in this. Maybe it is a cultural thing. The US is just starting to accept nursing back into the mainstream.
