I'm always impressed by the "nursing" aisle at the store. Even breastfeeding can turn a profit for someone. My own largely unused collection of breastfeeding paraphernalia acquired by way of various fears, tragedies, and conventions is all the proof anyone needs that the profiteers are good at what they do. It also calls to mind my secret impious analogy of individual Communion cuppies to pumping. I mean, I guess you could do that, but why?
Anyway, this nursing doll thing amuses me in similar fashion. Like a little girl needs a special doll and clothing to figure out how to nurse her "baby." Geniuses, these marketers. My kids have only recently learned what a bottle is since they have gained a cousin who uses one, but no doll has ever gone hungry in our house.
