I found out exactly what happens when you have a two year old girl who loves baby dolls, but has never had (and may have never seen--I'm not sure) a bottle.
She will "feed" her older baby dolls and little girl dolls with a spoon and a cup of baby food (empty, of course), but she doesn't feed her infant dolls. They're too little, and she doesn't have a bottle, or really know what a bottle is.
So, when I looked up earlier this afternoon, I found that my daughter was breastfeeding one of her many baby dolls, earlier. Snuggling it up to her chest, helping baby "latch on," telling the baby to nurse, petting the baby's molded, plastic hair, rocking the baby, and singing to it. Oh, and leaning down to kiss the baby every now and then.
And doing this pretty much absently, while watching television.
Don't know where she got that last I was always grading papers, answering questions, or reading books on my laptop.
*At least, her father and I thought it was really cute.
