MIAMI (CBS4) — Little girls love to play mommy with their dolls but when it comes to teaching our daughters about the magic of motherhood, some parents are turning to a new toy. The doll is called ‘Breast Milk Baby’ and it’s causing quite a controversy.
The doll comes from a toy company based in Spain. According to a company press release, “The Breast Milk Baby lets young girls express their love and affection in the most natural way possible, just like mommy!” The Berjuan toy company wants to promote breastfeeding as the most loving, healthy practice for a mother and her infant.
“The Breast Milk Baby represents a revolution in design by teaching children the nurturing skills they’ll need to raise their own healthy babies. Just put on the fashionable top included with each Breast Milk Baby, bring the baby’s mouth up to the pretty flower, and enjoy the closeness, the loving bond between mother and child,” states the release.
Along with the baby doll, the Breast Milk Baby comes with a special halter top for the young girl to wear. The shirt has flowers painted on it to illustrate where the nipples would be and where the girl should guide the doll’s mouth to suckle. The doll even makes a suckling noise.
