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.

Here’s something about the TSA Patdown that really makes me angry…

TSA Forces Flight Attendant To Remove Prosthetic Breast During Patdown

Cathy Bossi, who has been a flight attendant for 32 years, was forced to remove her prosthetic breast during a TSA patdown.

In early August Bossie was walking through security when she says she was asked to go through the new full body-scanners at Concourse “D” at Charlotte Douglas International.

She reluctantly agreed. As a 3-year breast cancer survivor she says she didn’t want the added radiation through her body. But, Bossi says she did agree.

“The T.S.A. Agent told me to put my I.D. on my back,” she said. “When I got out of there she said because my I.D. was on my back, I had to go to a personal screening area.”

“She put her full hand on my breast and said, ‘What is this?’. And I said, ‘It’s my prosthesis because I’ve had breast cancer.’ And she said, ‘Well, you’ll need to show me that’.”

Cathy was asked to show her prosthetic breast, removing it from her bra.

“I did not take the name of the person at the time because it was just so horrific of an experience, I couldn’t believe someone had done that to me. I’m a flight attendant. I was just trying to get to work.”
