I breast-fed my son, and promote breast-feeding for adult mothers, for both psychological and physiological reasons – it’s a great and wonderful thing for mother and child. I do believe in being discreet, however, which gets some breast-feeding moms hot under the collar. I guess they forget that breasts are “sexual” parts to men, and generally are considered appendages that should be private.
So what’s the latest toy on the market for little girls (coming out in time for the holidays)? A doll that comes with a special halter top for a little girl (the doll’s “mother”) to wear as she pretends to breast feed her “baby.” The halter top has daisies that cover a little girl’s nipples, and come undone just as easily as the flaps of a real nursing bra do.
Toys need to be age-appropriate, and toys which may speed up maternal urges at a time when children are not that mature, are just not appropriate at all.
