    My friends little girl left her newborn doll here a few weeks back and my DS who is almost two loves it. He just says "baby" all the time and kisses it's head, takes it to bed, takes it on walks. I'm going to buy him one for his birthday, but today in target he also got a little newborn baby - it was only $5 and he loves it.

    I didn't realise DS2 loved dolls until he played with them at a friend's house one day... I'd never seen him love a toy so much, but I hadn't realised as he'd just never been exposed to them before! A trip to Toys R Us and $10 later he had his first doll

    I bought DS a doll and pram for his birthday - not interested. However his Fireman Sam doll does get a lot of love and attention.

    I bought my dd a train set for her 2nd birthday so why not a boy a doll?
    And he will love having a doll to care for while you care for baby

    I got my 2 year old son a doll. Admittedly all he does is bash it on the table, see how far he can throw it and use it to knock down blocks; but hey, he does love playing with it.

    Just hoping he will be a little more gentle with the new baby.

    This made me laugh so hard. Sounds like my DS, he hoons his doll around in its pusher, and when it falls out he runs over it and keeps running with the pusher

    Oh good. Glad its not just my son then. We don't have a pram for him, but dolly gets to be the road block when he is playing with his dump truck.

    we did this for dd who is 2. it's an excellent idea. It kept her busy while i fed, she is now coping the way i do things with ds - feeding (she holds her doll to her boob lol), burping, tries to change its nappy (we got her doll nappies). She even talks to it in the tone i talk to ds. I can see she's become very nurturing and its amazing to see jusy how much she watches everything i do.
    We got her an anatomically correct doll, as we were expecing a boy, she has the boy doll and has since learnt the word "doodle". He has a bath with her and goes to bed with her, even sits up for meals with her.
    U could even get him a little bed and toy bottle for his doll. i dont see anything wrong with a 2yr old boy having a doll? my ds is going to grow up with dolls becaue of his sister. its totally fine and normal.

    Yes I bought DS a baby doll. He mostly just undresses it - sometimes throws it around ! But the really cute thing is that now that the baby is here, DS puts his teddy under his top and calls it his baby in his tummy!
