  1. I think this is great! Not only is breast fed infants declining, but younger mothers don’t want to do it. I think starting a child out early understanding that this is the best and healthiest way for baby is great. I can see where some moms are uncomfortable, but it is just like giving a baby doll a bottle. Definitely should be sold in the US!~
