Yep my two boys (and my girl) have/have had baby dolls and they've all loved them. My DS2 who is three has claimed my two old Cabbage Patch dolls and renamed them Baby and Princess and he absolutely dotes on them.

Yep DS is 3 and he asked for a baby for Christmas. We would have gotten him one anyway. Great for learning so many things and preparing the arrival of his little sister.

DS has one. He played with it for a while and called it his baby. I think it might make a comeback when is little sister arrives. I'm now in the search for a boy coloured stroller for him. DH didn't like the idea but it's a boy doll and when I got home with it he didn't mind as much. The doll never overshadowed his cars and trains though, they remained his favourite.

I got DS twin dolls from Kmart (boy & girl) and a pram, he absolutely loves them... We used them to teach him how to be gentle before DD arrived (didn't work!!) but he loves pushing them around, even uses them to copy me BFing DD, or boom as he calls it! My DH has no problem with it, as you said, he's might be a Dad someday :-)

I got my ds a baby doll for christmas. First thing he does when he sees it is give it a kiss and a cuddle.

I bought DS a doll when he was 18 months old. Just a plain 'boy' doll (ie, with boy bits). DS is now 7.5 and will still play with it, especially when DD gets her equivalent doll and they play at changing nappies or feeding them.
I don't *make* DS play with his doll, his tutu, his tea set or any other 'girl' toy he has but they are there if he wants them. At home he can be anything he wants to be, secure in the knowledge that he will not be judged or ridiculed. If he wants to wear his tutu and have a tea party with his dolls and teddies he can. Same as if he wants to build a rocket ship with his lego or a speed track for his cars.
What does your DH think is going to happen to him?

Busy-bee he just said no he doesn't need to have a doll. He has a tea set and kitchen he loves so I dont think he thinks anything bad will happen he just thinks its not necessary for him to play with dolls as dh never did

Yup. Ds had a cabbage patch doll for a few years around age 2. He had a pram for it and loved taking it for walks and changing it's nappy ect. He was very gentle and cared for it a lot.
He turned out to be THE most amazing big brother to dd1 now and he has always been very good with other peoples babies/kids.
He also loves Lego, cars, sports and playing in the mud.
All in all a balanced normal compassionate little boy.
