Believe it or not they have finally made the perfect doll to explain breastfeeding to your 5-year-old daughter. By this I mean there is a doll, the Bebe Gluton, that your child can now breastfeed! I do remember all the questions my son had on why I was letting his sister under my shirt and why I never fed her.
But I just simply explained it and he shrugged it off. I guess a doll might help others though. Okay on a more serious note, I’m totally against this. But I want to know what you think. I can understand that a child likes to pretend to be a mommy, however it seems a bit disturbing to me as well as a few others I’ve noticed.
Some have stated:
- Breastfeeding is only natural so why would this be strange?
- My daughter will never have this.
- only a pervert would get this for a little girl
- What were they thinking?
Early this morning when I first saw this I wrote about it on my own blog which you can read at The Life of a Home Mom. Let me know what you are thinking. I do know that this is not the first time a company has come out with a “controversial doll.” Here’s some that upset people in the past:
I won’t lie to you, we had the pregnant Midge doll. My daughter didn’t understand that there was a baby inside my tummy so I bought the doll to show her. Before anyone says anything I later took the tummy away and she had a newborn baby and a barbie. The 19th Century Doll shows how it really is and I hope that it is used in a health class, however this is definitely not one I’d tell anyone to buy for a little girl. Talk about nightmares for life. What do you think? Have you owned one of the above? Would you?
