MADRID, Nov. 9 (UPI) -- A Spanish toy company is raising controversy with a doll designed to suckle from a specially made halter top to be worn by young girls.

The Breast Milk Baby doll, made by Berjuan Toys, is designed to teach young girls about breastfeeding and comes with a halter top that contains sensors sewn into the nipples, KCBS-TV, Los Angeles, reported Friday.

Some parents have complained the doll is too sexualized. Patricia Cerda-Lizarraga said she would not allow her daughter to play with the toy.

"I would have a conversation with her and explain it to her. It's too much for them to be exposed like that," Cerda-Lizarraga said.

The doll is not available in U.S. stores, but can be purchased at thebreastmilkbaby.com.
