Is "Breast Milk Baby" too much, too soon?

NEW YORK, NY(ABC)--Is there such a thing as being too young to learn to breast-feed?

The Breast Milk Baby doll, from Berjuan Toys, is specifically designed to teach little girls how to breast-feed an infant and learn about the bond between mother and child.

Along with the baby doll, the Breast Milk Baby comes with a special cloth top for the youngster to wear. The shirt has flowers painted on it to illustrate where the nipple is and where the girl should guide the doll's mouth to suckle.

The goal of the doll is to spread the message that breast-feeding is a positive health choice for the child - a message that one is never too young to learn, according to the company press release. 

"The Breast Milk Baby lets young girls express their love and affection in the most natural way possible, just like mommy," Berjuan Toys said in a news release. "The Breast Milk Baby represents a revolution in design by teaching children the nurturing skills they'll need to raise their own healthy babies."

In Spain, a breast-feeding doll called the Bebe Gloton, also made by Spain's Berjuan Toys, has been sold since 2009.
