to think there is nothing wrong with this "breastfeeding" doll?

Apart from, maybe, the flowers=nipples idea, which seems a bit unnecessary.


Some of the comments below the article are quite full on. I thought this would be a good thing for all of us to get worked up about over here in the safe environs of MN....

I thought there'd be a thread on it already, actually, but didn't see one but tell me if I am wrong!!

Ta da! smile

Nothing wrong with it, it's just a bit pointless.

There was one a while ago on here.
Anyway, I agree with you. Flowers = weird, doll in general = good

Think theres been a couple of threads!

Just had a quick look read the first comment;

An ejaculating Action Man - has that been done yet?

What a strange view, equating feeding a baby with sex!

I get what her point was but still very odd, but I think thats because some people still see breasts and their function as purely sexual.

re the doll, it doesnt bother me personally but I dont see why they need a special doll and fake boobs! lots of little girls and boys will be holding their dolls to their chest copying mummy anyway, but if people want to waste spend their money that way so be it.

I'm very thankful that in my day dolls were just dolls!

I think that DCs hate being preached to just as much as adults! They have imaginations and they can use them!

oh yes, should have checked in chat!! thanks smile agree also that they will pretend anyway, so seems a bit pointless (also true for those dolls that wet their nappies and all that jazz)
