Parents’ fury as ‘totally inappropriate’ breastfeeding doll for young girls goes on sale in the U.S.

The toy market is constantly innovating when it comes to baby dolls. But a new product designed to simulate breastfeeding has sparked widespread anger among parents.

Makers of The Breast Milk Baby claim that their new doll allows children to experience the ‘magic of motherhood’.

But parents have spoken out in anger over the toy, which they have slammed as ‘totally inappropriate’.

Controversial: Spanish toy makers have launched The Breast Milk Baby on the U.S. market claiming that it lets young girls experience the ‘magic of motherhood’
The doll comes with a bib for the child to wear, with pink flowers indicating the nipple area.

When held to the breast the doll makes suckling noises, and start crying if it is not burped afterwards.

Dennis Lewis, U.S. spokesman for Berjuan Toys states:

‘The whole purpose of The Breast Milk Baby is to teach children the nurturing skills they’ll need to raise their own healthy babies in the future.

‘We really don’t understand why this has created such controversy.’

And though the overwhelming response has been negative, there are some parents that believe the Breast Milk Baby is harmless and fun.
