I just saw on Amazon you can buy a breastfeeding doll! It costs over $100 and it comes with a bra that has nipples sewn in that the baby doll suckles on. The doll is from Spain. I think a doll like that would be great for Americans. Have any of you seen this doll. I might just consider it as a christmas present for DD. She is always pretending to nurse her babies.

I've seen it.  Pretty pricey, though, for something both my girls just did naturally with their dolls.   Plus.. the thing has a very shallow latch, LOL!

I think it would be awesome to see it on the shelves of American retailers, but there are a lot of people who dont feel that way. This issue was all over NPR a couple of months ago, and its really sad to hear some of the opinions.
