the dollsNone of the stuff seemed that extreme-home birth, uc, the nursing of the 2.5 y/o twins.
I have actually witnessed a woman with one of those creepy dolls. She lives in the town I do(which is small). She's married, has real kids and for awhile a couple years ago was walking around town with what I first though was a real baby. I thought she was baby sitting or something. It ended up being one of those weird dolls. I saw her at our farmer's market with her daughter and thought oh it must be the kids doll or something.
Here's the weird part, when my DD was born I went to the market with my friend and my DD who was 2 weeks old at the time. She came up to me and said, "look our babies are the same size." WTF?!! Our babies? Mine is a baby, her's is a doll. WEIRD. I just looked at her and said, "my baby is not a doll." This woman is extremely weird. I tried not be judgemental, but geez, comparing my living, breathing child to a doll was just freakin bizarre.
I have to say for me I just could never nurse an older child, but if you want to that's fine. I had a hard enough time getting to 18 months with my DD due to extremely horrid hormonal issues with me resulting is debilitating migraines. My body got so confused with all the hormones that I almost could not care for her well at times because I was so sick from my migraines.
