Unboxing MamAmor's Birthing and Breastfeeding Doll
MamAmor is the company “with those awesome birthing and breastfeeding dolls. Yes, you probably have heard of this company or seen the dolls. I heard about MamAmor a few year ago and saw the dolls up close and personal at a DONA conference, but hadn’t made a purchase…until now!
I finally decided to make my purchase decision when I was looking for a good teaching tool for older children expecting a sibling. I have a fetus/placenta/uterus model, but those seem a little too abstract for children. I can just hear the questions with that model. "Where does the baby come out?"
The MamAmor Birthing and Breastfeeding Doll is an excellent teaching tool for my collection and I would be remiss to not mention the beautiful quality! Tulip (my doll's given name) is wearing a gorgeous hand knit cardigan sweater and matching shoes. She has on a lovely sundress and is accessorized with a flower in her thick multicolored yarn hair. Tulip's baby is outfitted in a soft flannel diaper and matching blanket (but is usually naked because of the importance of skin to skin).
I decided to create an unboxing video to share my excitement and thrill for finally making this purchase! I hope you enjoy the video and get to really see a detailed look at this one of a kind birthing and breastfeeding doll.
What can you demonstrate with a birthing a breastfeeding doll?
- Fetal positions: breech, posterior, anterior
- Delayed Cord Clamping
- Delivery of the placenta
- Breastfeeding positions
- Skin to Skin
I can't wait to put this doll to good use. In the meantime, my four kids are having fun with her. The baby has been named Bartholomew and has been birthed countless times! The next purchase they would like me to make is a MamAmor Puppy! Yes, the puppy gives birth too.
