The Orlando Sentinel (yay, FL newspaper! Go, home town folks) has Mom blogging section called Moms At Work (who knew?) and they just put this up on Twitter: a breast-feeding doll story.
Yes, I know, breast-feeding is natural. Although my boys didn't seem to think so. When they were babies, my oldest never took to "the nipple" even with the help of a lactation consultant. I live in fear that my kids will have inexplicable cravings for breast milk whenever they see one of those oil derricks pumping, since that's the only way they would take my breast milk, from a bottle after I pumped. I think I used to have dreams of hearing that whump, whump, whump breast-pump rhythm in my sleep.
But I digress. This doll works when the child puts on a special vest. The doll responds by making sucky faces and trying to suckle when it is put up to the vest, and crying when it is pulled away.
