We KNOW breastfeeding is best for babies. We know kids role play their world. Why shouldn't kids role play breastfeeding??
Personally, I think all the new baby dolls who jump around, cry, pee and move when you walk past them in the isle are unnecessary, and a little creepy. A child's imagination does all that for the baby without needing batteries! But there is nothing especially obscene about the movements this doll makes. The babies with bottles make the same movements and sounds.
Every one needs to just calm down...
(The only mildly offensive thing about this doll is the price! But maybe that's just me.)
The doll is well proportioned for little arms (if even a bit bulky but she'll grow into her)! The 'bra' that comes with it is easy to use (but I would have preferred a bit more width as she prefers to wear it over her shirt or sweater and it is really tight unless on her bare skin! I would say this is the ONLY reason I gave it 4 instead of 5 stars overall!)
Bottom line she has played more with her baby (which she calls Marite) nursling than she has with any of her other babies and often goes back to 'check on her' you know, "In case she's hungry."
I have no doubt that if you watched little girls who grew up before the introduction of artificial feeding that they would have pretended to feed their babies the only natural way that a human could: by breastfeeding. Before artifical feeding was marketed these parents would not have seen this as sexual or creepy, nor would they have thought "how weird". They simply would have watched their little girl and thought how cute she was being as she pretended to be a mommy. We are currently a culture that has been brainwashed to think that feeding a baby with a bottle is normal. It is not. It is the result of billions of dollars of advertising by formula companies.
This doll is a breath of fresh air. I look forward to the day (which I believe will come - though not in our lifetimes) when we look at an infant being artificially fed and we think "how weird".
My only problem is the price, but it's worth it, I've found the doll to be very durable and will probably last for other young family members to use in the future.
So remember, your offensiveness will be past onto your children, and that will be demonstrated in the way they accept or reject something that is foreign to them, albeit not-so-foreign to many parts of the world.
Since that time in 1985, I have become an advocate for breastfeeding. It is a fantastic experience for mother and child, and I am glad that America has come a long way in supporting it. But I can see the stigma is still there. No one should be intimidated into doing anything they don't feel comfortable doing, my only hope is that there is support for the women who are interested.
Myself, I was never interested in dolls as a child, and I am sure there are many girls who are not interested, but if my daughter wanted a breastfeeding doll, I wouldn't blink an eye. But more importantly, let's not be so judgmental, especially in activities that come second-nature to some women.

My granddaughter loved this little doll. It looks and sounds like a real little baby. Very very adorable. She can nurse just like her mother is nursing her new baby brother.Published on April 19, 2013 by laura lee prow
