Breastfeeding Barbie By Aussie Doll Artist And Mom Betty Strachan

Brisbane, Australia-based mom Betty Strachan believes the key to erasing the stigma around breastfeeding is education. That’s why she’s created a breastfeeding doll for kids: ‘The decision to make a breastfeeding doll didn’t come consciously. I’m a member of a mothers’ group that’s comprised of very lovely and supportive women. I remember one day, I was drawing the new face on a Barbie doll, and she just seemed to be the embodiment of the entire group. So I mimicked the positioning of a latched baby with an old figurine I had and called her the ‘Mamas Worldwide Barbie’. Everyone in my mother’s group thought it was great, so I posted her on my Instagram page. After that, I received a few requests to make more, and I realized that it was really something that should be available ― because, like most things that society deems unacceptable, educating children is the way to erase the stigma behind it.’
