The BoldHeartMama desires to enjoy living out the choices that she’s made for herself and for her family. She is a relentless learner: curious, inquisitive, and open to the possibilities of her life and of the human condition. She understands that there isn't one right way—she asks questions that dig deeper to make sense of it all and to find her own path.

She pays attention to and nurtures whatever it is she really cares about, letting go of the rest (for now) knowing she can't do and be everything all at once. She embraces her imperfections in favor of "good enough"—her imperfect self, her imperfect home, her imperfect mothering, her imperfect desires—and she never stops evolving as a woman and mother. She is a BoldHeart, authentic and true to herself.

The BoldHeartMama knows there is only this one life and she's all in. She is present and engaged and making things happen. Her intuition is her guide. She seeks to be inspired and relies on her creativity and her resourcefulness to solve the big and little challenges that she and her family face together as they navigate their relationships and their world.

The BoldHeartMama is willing to take calculated risks to make her biggest dreams come true. She is living out her BoldHeart in the moment, making small moves and taking little steps that add up, and she's cultivating a good life for herself and her family in the process. Read More!

Introducing Bebé Glotón

The latest controversy in the world of toys: a "breastfeeding" doll!


And here's the demonstration video:



The public's reaction has been mixed. Predictably, some feel that it sexualizes young girls, while others see it as a harmless mimicry doll joining the ranks of Tiny Tears, Baby Alive, and Betsy Wetsy. Then there are those that think it's just plain weird! It is the daisy halter (not the doll) that raises my eyebrow.

Here's one reasonable perspective.
What do you think?

P.S. Bebé Glotón translates to "baby glutten" and according to Urban Dictionary "glutten" is defined as "overeats, pigs out, obnoxious"!

  2. I agree with you on the halter being a bit odd, but I will say that I've seen many little girls try to emulate their mothers while they are breastfeeding younger siblings. Minus the gawdy accessories, I don't see how a young girl imitating a completely natural, maternal, nurturing activity is a problem. I would think that most of us who have done this will agree that breastfeeding, while a beautiful experience, is about as far from sexual as it gets!

  3. I completely agree! Even little boys mimic their breastfeeding mothers, because that's how they know to feed a baby.

    I recently read that at 3 months, only 1/3 of mothers are still breastfeeding AT ALL, while only 14% are breastfeeding exclusively (CDC). I was just having this conversation with a friend, and it's no wonder people get weird about it, BF is really not that prevalent in our country, and certainly not something the public is exposed to on a regular basis. Boobs on the other hand...
