God Supports The Breast Milk Baby
Last week Berjuan Toys, launched the world’s first breastfeeding doll, “The Breast Milk Baby” into the U.S. market. The doll lets young girls express their love and affection in the most natural way possible, by simulating natural nursing. According to Dennis Lewis, U.S. spokesman for Berjuan Toys, “the whole purpose of The Breast Milk Baby is to teach children the nurturing skills they’ll need to raise their own healthy babies in the future. Breastfeeding is good for babies, it’s good for mommies and it’s good for society. We really don’t understand why this has created such controversy.”
According to Mr. Lewis, “The truth is that we’ve received overwhelming support online from all over the country. However, about 20% of the messages have been hateful and mean. We’re being called perverts and pedophiles for promoting feeding our babies the way God intended? Churches all over the world are filled with images of Mary nursing baby Jesus, and yet we can’t imagine letting our daughters learn how important breastfeeding is for our society?”
With few exceptions, the World Health Organization recommends exclusive breastfeeding for the first six months of life for all babies. Also, former Pope John Paul II stated, “So human and natural is this bond that the Psalms use the image of the infant at its mother’s breast as a picture of God’s care for man (cf. Ps 22:9).”
“A hundred years ago, 90% of Americans would have laughed at all this controversy. Breastfeeding was considered a normal part of everyday life until the pharmaceutical companies struck gold with the idea of artificial milk in the 1920s. As Americans we’ve been duped into believing there’s something shameful and taboo about breastfeeding, but the truth is that this idea was created to sell more baby formula. The Breast Milk Baby is a serious product, created by a small family owned Christian toy manufacturer who strongly believes in the benefits of feeding babies the natural God given way.
Our dolls are beautiful and well made, and we’re proud of them.”
