I don't find the breast feeding doll to be gross, just stupid. I had a Betsy Wetsy when I was a little girl. You fed it water, it came out a little hole in it's crotch area, into a diaper. That was 55+ years ago. Little girls will pretend to breast feed regular dolls. Mine did. When I brought my son home from the hospital, my daughter sat down next to me when I breast fed him. She put her doll to her chest and held it there for a few minutes. Then she looked at me and claimed that was silly and went and got a toy bottle. Kids emulate their parents all of the time. A little girl mimicking their mother breast feeding is not awful. But the doll is dumb.
