Breast Milk Baby Halter Top Flowers For Nipples For Girls To Wear

Breast Milk Baby Halter Top Flowers For Nipples For Girls To Wear, Breast Milk Baby, a doll that teaches young girls how to breastfeed, is coming to U.S. stores, and is stirring up controversy.
The doll is made by Berjuan Toys, a company out of Spain. According to CBS, Berjuan touts the product as a way for young girls to “express their love and affection in the most natural way possible, just like mommy!”
Breast Milk Baby comes with a halter top for its owner, which contains two flowers where nipples would be. While wearing this top, a girl can hold the baby doll up to the flowers, and the baby will make suckling noises.
The doll is a top-selling product in Europe, but many U.S. parents find it to be bizarre and unsettling. Critics accuse the product of over-sexualizing young girls too soon.
“I think it’s very creepy,” said one woman, according to CBS. “I don’t think little kids should be breastfeeding.”
However, Carrie Lauth, a mother and blogger, doesn’t see what the problem is.
“I think it’s a fantastic idea, I don’t understand why it’s a controversy,” Lauth said, as quoted by ABC News. “It’s definitely something I would consider buying for my daughters because I’ve purchased in the past items that mimic what I do, like little baby slings for their dolls.”
According to Jay Reeve, a psychologist out of Florida, the doll’s realism goes too far. “Of course, children have played ‘parent’ with dolls for centuries, but this new twist seems to focus not on what babies are like as much as jump-starting a focus on breast-feeding,” said Reeve, as quoted by ABC. “I’m always a little disturbed by toys, games, or products that have the impact of accelerating childhood identification with being a full-blown adult.”
