Breast feeding doll going too far?

Posted Aug 13 2009 6:37pm

Breastfeeding is natural. We all know it. Until now though, all baby dolls are bottle-fed. Why?

gluton1 Spanish toy maker, Berjuan, has created a baby doll called Bebé Glotón with the idea to promote breastfeeding and to impress upon kids that breastfeeding is natural.

A colourful bra-like halter top featuring flowers over the nipple area comes with the doll. When the baby doll is lifted to the flowers, it makes a suckling motion and sound.

What do you think?
