Breastfeeding Baby Doll to hit market

It’s exactly what it sounds like. A doll for your child that breastfeeds. It’s called the Breast Milk Baby and the company is bringing it to the US.  There’s a harness your daughter can wear with sensors in place of the nipple. When the doll is brought close to the flowers… it eats and you can hear the suckling noise. Some parents say too much too soon.. but breast feeding advocates argue it’s education. There is no doubt that breast feeding in public is still being sexualized.. just look at all the news stories we do (mom asked to leave mall for breastfeeding her daughter.)  Read more of the story here…

Check out the story we did below… what’s your take?
