Bub #2 is due in two months and I want to buy my 2.5yo DD her own baby doll to look after once she's born, but there are so many on the market I have no idea which one to choose!
These are my requirements:
- she's got to be able to bathe it (so no soft-bodied dolls)
- maybe something about the size of a Baby Born so I can buy play nappies for it, and
- it'd be nice if its eyes closed when it lays down (so DD can tell that her baby is asleep).
That's pretty much it. I'm also torn as to whether to buy an anatomically correct doll (even though it kinda weirds me out!) - my thinking is that DD won't really care or notice. I'm also not sure if I should buy a wrinkly newborn-looking doll or a more happy, smiley baby doll. The best ones I've found so far are the Berenguer La Newborn Nursery Doll (a newborn boy doll) and the Fisher Price Little Mommy Scrub-a-Dub-Dub Doll. Not terribly keen on Baby Borns as I don't like their faces and they're a bit pricey.
Anyone got any suggestions?
