Poll: Would You Buy A Breastfeeding Doll For Your Child?
Just in time for holiday shopping, a toy company in Spain called Berjuan Toys is hoping to break into the U.S. market with their new doll – the Breast Milk Baby.
Dubbed the “world’s first breastfeeding doll,” the breast milk baby was designed to make suckling noises like a real baby when a specially designed halter top with sensors sewn into the nipples is worn. The doll makes the noises when placed near the sensors, mimicking breastfeeding.
While the company says their doll teaches young girls about the “magic of motherhood” and how to nurture and breastfeed a baby, many parents and critics are saying the doll is too sexualized for young children.
Mother Patricia Cerda-Lizarraga said she wouldn’t give the doll to her daughter.
“I would have a conversation with her and explain it to her. It’s too much for them to be exposed like that,” she said according to CBS LA.
