Meet bebe Gloton!
A doll manufactured by a Spanish toy company is inspiring a strong reaction in mothers here in the U.S. The doll, called “Bebé Glotón” (Glutton Baby), comes with an apron-like halter top for young girls to wear. The top features two daisies in the nipple area. When the doll’s mouth is pressed against the nippleflowers, it begins to make suckling motions and sounds. As an added bonus, the doll can be burped after it is done feeding.
Here's bebe Gloton in action:
I'll admit, I think my 6 year old would actually like this. I nursed her until she was 15 months old and I think she still misses it. (Yeah, I know, National Geographic right?)
Of course I laughed when I first saw this...but what do you think? Should women wait until they actually give birth and lactate before they nurse a baby (robotic or otherwise)?
I'll be heading to New Hampshire for the weekend, so we'll talk more when I get back.
