6 Best Babywearing & Breastfeeding Dolls for Kids of Crunchy Mamas

babywearing parents dollsDo you ever get depressed when you're toy shopping for the kids? Between the way genders are so split and the inanity of some of the toys on the shelves out there, sometimes buying for a birthday party makes you feel like you're having your soul sucked out.

So how about something new, something different and really pretty positive? I'm talking about babywearing dolls. Breastfeeding dolls! The kind of toys that an attachment parent would be proud to purchase!

No, you won't find them on the shelves of your big box store. You might not even find them at your local toy store (where we used to go to find stuff from toy designers who decided to go a little out of the box with their designs but lately ... sigh). But we have got them right here!

We've poked around and found six adorable dolls that emphasize everything that so-called "crunchy" mamas hold dear. Because while we do a lot simply by modeling our activities for our kids, they also tend to learn through play.

So here they are, some of our favorites. Which ones would you buy for your kids?

30-80$ for a blob with yarn on it? Your kid could make better looking dolls with old socks, for free.

The nursing mom doll is so ugly.

Yes we have a Freja doll, but the mama version.

Make sure you don't have mice or those corn filled dolls are toast. Don't ask how I know. :( P.S. the phrase "crunchy mama" is right up there with "trending" and "ginormous" for being frickin annoying. "Frickin" doesn't bither me, though.

Pretty limited selection. Where are the dolls that represent more than light-skinned families? While they positively promote baby wearing and breastfeeding, they do so with a specific, limited demographic that allows only a certain population of children to see themselves represented.

Where are the dolls for families who are not white?

Mamamor creates beautiful breastfeeding, birthing and baby wearing mom (and dad) dolls. They are large sized and can be custom made for different skin colours/hair, cesarean scar or vaginal birth. They are expensive but lovely.
