We are thinking of buying DS (nearly 2 yrs old) one of those lifelike newborn dolls in preparation for the new baby. Anyone done this?

Dolls for boys?

I have girls so no. But I don't think there is anything wrong with it. Go for it.

Im thinking of doing the same thing. I think its a great idea!

Beautiful idea. There's no reason to assume a boy won't love a doll. Mine do

Yep, we did this with my DS and it worked really well. His newborn rode around in the car with us and slept in the bassinet etc. it really got him used to having all the baby equipment around the house.

I wanted to buy dolly for my son even though his small brother already arrived and it would be not for that purpose. I noticed that he likes dolls - that is, sometimes, he is still cars/trains/planes fan
For the moment they have a rug doll from Ikea, African version, cause every time I went to look at dolls I couldn't find nice one that is not horribly expensive.
Boys will be daddies one day, so why not?

Yes yes yes! Both my boys have been through a phase of caring for their 'babies'...pushing them in strollers and putting them to bed.
It doesn't last very long for boys from what I can see, but good to encourage while you can!
Tip- kmart has little newborn babies for $15, in a range of colours, there is one with a blue outfit, and one with an orange outfit...they have soft cuddly bodies and plastic heads.

I recently bought a doll for DS, just to add some diversity to his play. He is an only child though.
He mainly pushes it around in a little stroller, but isn't that interested in the doll on it's own!

DS loves his dolls (and his sister's dolls). He feeds them, cuddles them, puts them to bed, pushes them around in a stroller.
Just like his dad did with him and with his little sister.
