I'm not sure it will prepare him for anything, but there's nothing wrong with boys having dolls to play with if they're interested.

DS1 recently turned 2. He received a pram and doll from his grandparents (we asked them to buy it) he loves pushing the pram around, giving the doll a bottle and putting the doll into bed. Go for it

Do it. at xmas ds (then 20 months) attached himself to my nieces doll. We had to take it everywhere, so we went and got him his own doll and pram.
He loves it. feeds it its bottle, puts it on its potty, makes me change its nappy, baths it...its just a cheap tinkers one from big w, but well worth it.
My only upset was allll the dolls and accessories were candy pink! We did get some strange looks having him push a pink pram through a caravan park, but I couldn't care he was happy and that means more to me than what anyone else could think.

Just thought I'd give an update - we did end up getting ds a cheap doll and he likes it. It has a dummy that he can push into it's mouth so thats a novelty. It's really very cute cause ds is surprisingly gentle with 'his baby' which I didn't expect and now and again pushes bits of food into it's mouth to feed it. Daycare ladies say he's very gentle with the babies in the nursery as well which is great.

DS was 17 months old when DD was born and I bought him a doll a few months before, he didn't take to it and it didn't help with anything He's 3 now and carts around dolls, cuddling them, putting them to bed etc.

my brother bought my ds a bath buddy doll for his first birthday. (big surprise as he's usually clueless about such things) ds thought it was funny but wasn't really interested until bam.... he turned 2 and suddenly he loves it! It's great because before he hated washing his hair but now we wash Morge's hair first and then it's his turn. same with washing his face etc. as long as his doll does it first then he will! works just as well when trying new foods.

I've just bought my DS twin baby dolls for his birthday, it does annoy me that they are covered head to foot in sickly pink. But oh well, he loves babies, I can't stand in the way of that!
