Breastfeeding Dolls: Not Your Typical Barbie Doll

I had never seen such dolls before:

  • breastfeeding dolls (the newborn or toddler attaches to his mother’s breast with velcro or a snap fastener, some are actually really cute waldorf style dolls, see below)

  • birthing dolls (the newborn can get in and out of the mother’s womb, probably a very good way to show a toddler how he will actually become a big brother or a big sister)

  • anatomically correct dolls (the main difference with regular dolls is that those actually do have genitals, men and women alike).

Some are African-American dolls, others Hispanic dolls or birthing black dolls, the list goes on. They are all made by hand and for sale on the web, mostly geared towards birthing educators like midwives and doulas, who can use them as teaching tools for their clients, or for parents who want to get as far away as they can from the Barbie type doll. In fact, I do not think you can get much further away !
