Breast-feeding Baby Doll. Love it or Hate it? Leave your comments

Posted: Updated:

A Spanish-made breast-feeding baby doll is soon heading to store shelves here in America.

The doll's name Bebe Gloton, translates as "Baby Glutton," and suckles as it "feeds."

Along with the doll, comes a special halter top young girls put on. A pair of daisies substitute for nipples and in the top and doll are sensors, so when the baby doll's face is placed to the daisies, it stops crying.

The doll cries when it needs more milk and the young doll owner can burp the baby once the feeding is finished.

The doll, created by the Spanish toy maker Berjuan, is growing more and more controversial. Is this a helpful tool to assist and teach young girls about breast-feeding? Or does this doll cross the line?

Critics worry it may speed up maternal desires, leading to more teen pregnancies. Others, including the toy maker, believe it's a good thing to make young girls comfortable with their bodies.
