There's a Spanish-made doll out there that helps little girls simulate nursing. It's called "The Breast Milk Baby". There's bra type 'bib' girls put over their shirts which has little flower-shaped petals the baby doll can suckle. And suckle it does. There's an audible "sloop sloop sloop" sound the doll makes; and then mommy (in this case a 4 year-old mommy) can burp her fed baby.

Mama say what? 

I'm totally cool with breastfeeding. I nursed two hungry boys. When I hear about moms getting the evil eye in public while they nurse, I get a little angry. It's OUR right to feed our kids when they need it, and unless we're traipsing around with an engorged boob hanging out, look away and mind your own bi'ness. But this whole doll thing is insane, and here's why: Girls do not need any more encouragement in this culture to grow up faster than they already have to. From padded bras and swimsuit tops for 8 year olds, to thongs in the tween department, our little girls are going from preschool to high school and nothing in between.

Yes, it's good to encourage breastfeeding, but (jump here)
