But a breast-feeding doll whose suckling sounds are prompted by sensors sewn into a halter top at the nipples of little girls caught some flak after hitting the U. Lewis in Orlando, Fla. Usually they are people that either have problems with breast-feeding in general, or they see it as something sexual.
This new doll will get us thinking, discussing and really looking at our true feelings towards breastfeeding. Designed to encourage little girls to learn about breastfeeding, it has been branded repulsive and disgusting, but what does that say about our true feelings towards breastfeeding?

Remember those cute, little dolls you'd spoon-feed with sweet-smelling plastic cherries?

It comes in six styles including boys and girls, and even has darker skinned options.

We've got dolls with perfect hourglass figures. We've got dolls with swagger. And we've got plenty that come with itty bitty baby bottles.
