Betsy Wetsy Gots Nothing On These Dollies

Reader AV points to an NYT blog post about MamAmor dolls.  They give birth, breastfeed, and, of course, have available babywearing accessories.  Commence general public horror in 5, 4, 3 . . . .

Actually, the dolls are lovely - all hand made - and customizable.  The babies even have little cords and placentas.  I might've thought that a bit much, but it's all very creatively and endearingly done.

I'm not sure how soon I'll be wanting to have a talk about how the baby got IN there with my daughter, but knowing the process from a step or so after that doesn't seem so bad, especially for families with apprehensive big brothers or sisters in the making.

The baby dolls attach to the cord and to the breast via snap buttons, which, if  you look at it, is pretty smart.  And oddly moving.  I don't know why, but I find the little snap-on nursers really sweet.  On the other hand, it may mislead kids into thinking that first latch is a snap.
