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…

At Baby To Be  there’s a plush couch for guests and gorgeous mural on the wall where the images of your baby are projected for all to ooooh and awwwww.  Pictures below.

For $125 I got the session and a CD with 3D and 2D pictures of my baby and a DVD recording of the entire session. At 29 weeks my baby was still breach so it was tough to see past her hand. I plan to go back in a few weeks when she is turned so I can get a full view of her face and more!  For more information check out babytobeimages.com
