Keira has been obsessed with babies since she could say the word baby. After Ava was born I found that Keira was extremely protective of Ava. The second Ava would start to cry Keira would run to the bedroom door and proclaim that “baby crying!” and insist I help the baby “right now”.
As both girls have grown over the past 11 months their bond has grown deeper and Keira absolutely loves to “help” with Ava. She delights at being allowed to help feed Ava, help change Ava’s diaper, help bathe Ava etc.. Of course these attempts at caring for Ava don’t always go well but her intentions are good and I think its wonderful she has such natural caring and nurturing instincts so why not encourage it!
Now Keira has a baby of her own that she can feed and care for in the Baby Alive My Baby All Gone Doll. A realistic and perfect surrogate for Ava. The Baby Alive My Baby All Gone Doll comes with the doll and her outfit as well as two diapers and 2 food packets, her bowl, spoon and bottle. Diaper and food refills are sold separately.
Baby Alive My Baby All Gone Doll is intended for children 3 years and up.
The “food” can be mixed up in the bottle or the bowl to be fed to baby. The “food” isn’t meant to be ingested by children but it is non-toxic which is important in the younger age range.
I would recommend using a drop mat the first few times your child feeds the My Baby All Gone Doll as it was quite messy until Keira got the hang of putting the spoon back in far enough into the dolls mouth. Granted Keira is just shy of the lower range of the recommended age so this is likely because she is younger. The doll can also be played with using a touch of imagination for moms and children who prefer to play without the diapers and food.
Keira was absolutely thrilled to be feeding her baby and taking care of her right down to having to change the doll’s diaper because guess what? My Baby All Gone Doll also wets and dirties her diaper like a real baby. Despite a slight diaper application error by a mom who clearly is far too used to squirmy babies to be able to change a completely still “baby” there was no mess on that end although it was clearly quite close!
The doll also responds with more than 30 phrases, and loves kisses and cuddles too! She knows the care she’s receiving and will respond to it. For example, when Keira feeds her, My Baby All Gonesays things like “I love veggies!” or “More, please!” She even expresses her love of hugs with “Hugs, please!”
