Breast Milk Baby Doll Teaches Kids to Breast-FeedPost: Cindy Ferry
LOL ... Okay, I admit that I myself have had to overcome issues with breastfeeding. It just wasn't something done when I was a child. As I grew and matured, as I became a Mom, I looked for what I felt was best for my child. Well, it turned out breastfeeding was not an option for me, for my daughter. But, as I started homeschooling and being with many other Mom's, I found that many/most of them breast-fed and did so openly. I think that was the hardest thing for me to learn to accept. But, I realized that it was perfectly natural and that to do anything but, was to shame breastfeeding. So, I learned to overcome my issues with breastfeeding. For the market to come out with a doll like this, I think it is also just natural and right. That's my perspective on the subject. I think we have to desexualize the breast and see it as a source of sustenance, a life giving tool. I like the idea of the doll and think it is a good thing and is good for child.
