Breastfeeding Doll Shocks Parents

Doll teaches girls about breastfeeding

(FOX 25 / MyFoxBoston.com) -
Is it appropriate for a child to learn how to breastfeed?

A controversial new doll is certainly raising some eyebrows. It's called the Breast Milk Baby and a video on the toy company's Web site shows how it works.

The baby comes with a cloth halter, which shows where little girls should hold the doll. The doll even makes noises.

As you can imagine, some parents are outraged.

The toy company, located in Spain, says the doll is designed to help little girls learn about the bond between a mother and child.
