I love the breastfeeding aspect, of course!

Jill said...

I love that she breastfeeds. Breastfeeding all of my kids is such a fond memory. Whenever I see a mom breast feeding it brings back that sweet feeling of just looking into my babies eyes! I would love when they would smile back and the milk would run down there cheek!

Unknown said...

I love that she breastfeeds her baby! Breastfeeding is my favorite thing in the world. My two year old will love to help her doll feed her baby if we win!

lvbgmum said...

Quite honestly, I love the realistic shape of the mamas. I love being able to hug her and so do my girls!

Yaheli said...

I love breastfeeding and natural birth... Oh! And the attach parenting! I love all!

Gwynne Adoption Journey said...

I love the breastfeeding and the birthing. My daughter plays with her dolls, loves them and "nurses" them as she wraps them. How encouraging of all things natural for her to have a doll that does the same! <3 these beauties!!

I love that she is so relateable to my own mothering style!

willowmay said...

I love the way she breastfeeds! and the way she carries bub so close to her body. Also the way she gives birth so naturally!

Andrea said...

I love the babywearing & breastfeeding doll!!

Pascale Brochu-James said...

I love the breastfeeding aspect... when I look at this beautiful doll it brings back wonderful memories... one of then is my daughter breastfeeding her dolls <3

Gin said...

As a mother and a midwifery student I love every aspect all your dolls. I love that they model attachment parenting with breastfeeding, baby wearing, and giving birth. I also love that I can use them professionally and personally. My very favorite part though is the placenta!

LaLa said...

I absolutely *adore* that MamAmor Dolls are babywearers!! As a babywearing educator who has worn all three kiddos, it is absolutely something I - and my children! - can identify with deeply. Babywearing is love is mommyhood!

I also think it's incredible for our children to be able to have a doll that vaginally births her babies (umbilical cord, placenta and all!) -- we are homebirthers, and our older children were both present for their little sister's birth, and loved it!

And of course, breastfeeding. <3 I *love* that MamAmor dolls not only nurse their newborns/infants, but their toddlers as well. Absolutely fantastic!

Nirvana Mama said...

Both of my children were born at home in water. I nursed each one until they were 41/2 years old. I wore them until they no longer wanted to be worn - about 3 years old. What I love about MamAmor Dolls is the beauty they bring to what's natural, but often shunned in our culture, which is giving birth, nursing and baby wearing. I've spent the last decade raising my children to honor birth, nursing and women's abilities to do these things. The dolls embody those beliefs. Thanks for creating them. I would love to give one to my daughter. She'll be 6 in June.

selsner said...

I lke the fact she can have a vbac. Eventhough my vbac failed I still think it's important to show that it is possible!

twinkletoes said...

My favorite aspect is the breastfeeding and birthing, and that they can be shared so beautifully with children!

a year in self portrait said...

The aspect I like most is BREASTFEEDING (and I also love that they babywear)!!!! My daughter already gives her baby the "nums" and she's only 10 months old. I think MamAmor Dolls are so awesome because they allow our children to act out natural parenting!

Unknown said...

I loved nursing and giving birth! The oxytocin rush is amazing! Rachael bieltz

Julisuz said...

I love that she looks like lots of moms I know, she does what's natural for her baby and looks cute doing it! :)

Karen said...

I love that the doll has crazy hair like me, that she babywears (even though I prefer a wrap to a ring sling, the basic meaning is still there!), she breastfeeds, and (I would assume) that she gives birth naturally. Even though this doll doesn't have the incision, I love that some of the dolls are VBAC ready. As much as I wanted, tried, and prayed for a natural birth with my second child (I was able to have one with my first), she was breech and could not turn, so unfortunately, she was born via C-section. I would love a doll that I could use to show each girl the special and unique way that they entered the world.

monnie said...

Beautiful! I so much want to win her!! I cannot afford to buy one so it would be wonderful to be able to win one :)!

Cate said...

Wow! please enter me into the conp! Thanks

Lil' Green said...

I love that she gives birth!!

Sazzybabyassets said...

I love that she is as real as it gets. She is a mother even as a doll she tells you what a mother she is. She is a great roll model to children

Rachel said...

My favorite part of motherhood that Isabella does, probably has to be being pregnant, and esp growing another human through the life giving organ of the placenta. Woman are amazing!

Carine said...

I love that she is a real woman with curves and all, and every single one of them is a unique mama, like us! :)

Patrice London said...

There's no way I can think of just one aspect!

As a natural birthing, breastfeeding, babywearing, mother and birthworker, I love that she gives birth and breastfeeds.

I love that these aren't your average dolls. They all have such wonderful funky style and are so indicative of women- all different, all gorgeous!

Also, as a curvy Black woman, I LOVE those beautiful hips!!

Kendra said...

I love EVERYTHING about Mamamor dolls! So unique, beautiful and powerful. It would be such a joy to share with my kids and with my clients, as a doula. What fun to bring to prenatal appts as an educational tool for siblings!

stephteff said...

I love that she comes in a realistic shape and has realistic colourings, not just a skinny blonde white mum.

Cassie said...

My favorite motherhood aspect of the MamAmor doll is that she is inclusive of both vaginal births and cesarean births so mamas who have birthed in any manner can enjoy her. She's just BEAUTIFUL!

StarsofOurHearts said...

The aspect of motherhood that I love most about MamAmor dolls is thier realism. We don't have a stork brins us our babies, nor does he feed them. We give birth to them and we feed them and I love that your dolls proudly and gently portray that. Plus I love anything that supports breastfeeding as I've breastfeed all three of my babies and plan to do so again with my fourth (due Jan 1st 2013 ISH). Thank you MamAmor fot this great opportunity!

Angie said...

I love that each one is unique. Each mother has her own, unique and special path and I love that the MamAmor dolls celebrate the beauty of each mother and baby dyad. Bonus points for babywearing, breastfeeding and VBAC, but even within these areas, each one is so unique and beautiful.

ij3 said...

I love MamAmor Dolls because without using words they encourage mothers and children who see them to accept natural childbirth, breastfeeding and baby wearing. Most little girls and even little boys play with dolls at some point in their childhood and what they repeatedly see is what they will carry with them into their adult years. MamAmor dolls can be used as an educational tool even when a child is just playing because the child not only sees "Mom" or "Aunt" or "Friend" breastfeeding but also their toy mama taking care of her baby in the same way thus making it a normal everyday occurance and not something to frown upon as an adult.

et said...

The gestating, the birthing, the nursing, and the love!

Becca said...

I love everything but I really love the natural birthing part of it because it is a good concrete way to show my daughter how her sister is going to come into the world. There is nothing like this anyway else, I would love to win this and would treasure it.

Erin said...

These dolls embody all that is right and good about childbirthing, mothering and parenting. They are tangible examples of what comes naturally. They "normalize" what so many seem to think is unusual, "Crunchy" or extreme. I'm a mother to two boys, a Doula and an aspiring Midwife. As a mother I want my boys to learn that birth is natural, breastfeeding is natural, and baby wearing is natural. I want them tot grow to become amazing partners, and parents. As a Doula and aspiring Midwife, I want my clients to be able to share the ins and outs of what to expect with their older children and new siblings in a fun and non-threatening way. MamAmor Dolls ae perfect for that! Thank you for what you do! I love your work! Happy Mothers day to us all!

macyllehub said...

I love that I can relate to the dolls, I'm a rounded mother that breastfeeds, baby wears, and has earthy relaxed clothing :)

Tanya said...

I love that I can teach my kids about pregnancy, birth and breastfeeding all in one beautiful doll!!!!!!

Artavia Family said...

She is so much more that a doll! I love her & I know my girls would adore her! I love the baby wearing & the nursing :-)

Diggin Family said...

I love the normalcy of them! Easy to teach children that wearing a baby, breastfeedin etc isnt strange

montacki said...

I love that the doll gives birth, and how natural and "mothering" she looks when wearing her baby.

Birte said...

My favorite aspect is the breastfeeding! I'm expecting my second baby and know my daughter will love to have a doll that can do the same as Mama.
I'm also a midwife and would love to incorporate the doll in my breastfeeding discussion!

Qumabh said...

I love the beauty of their simplicity. Their shape is realistic and beautiful. I love the way even their eyes smile.

Amelie said...

My favourite aspect is the breastfeeding! Not to mention that the doll itself is beautiful! I think it would be a useful tool to teach my son about birth and attachment parenting. :)

Caity said...

I LOVE that the dolls not only give birth but also breast feed!!!!!

bwelltended said...

I never wanted ANY children, bc failed and I got the most life altering gift from God. I am now a mama of 7, a Le Leche League leader & birth and breastfeeding educator & this lovely work of art captures the 'art' of what mothering does to a woman; makes her BEAUTIFUL ;)

stacy said...

The mama dolls embody LOVE for their babies...to birth them, nurse them, hold them, wear them...I love that they do all the things we mama's do for our babies.

Jeanette said...

Well besides everything I love about this doll, I love that Mamamor mommas are real portrayals of a birthing and breastfeeding mom. We aren't the most fit or beautiful gals but we love our children with all our hearts therefore it's an easy extension to birth naturally, breastfeed and hold/wear them!

fantasy murals said...

All 4 of my childern were brest feed & carried on my frount & back. Until they wanted to stop, with no pressure.
I love MamAmor dolls because they are warm friendly looking toys. That teach our childern about bonding,birthing & feeding. They also have great hair & clothes.

Carly said...

I love that MamAmor dolls can be pregnant, give birth, and breastfeed. I also love that they can use a rebozo. I adore these dolls.

Jo said...

I love that she does it all. How great is it to show our kids the awesomeness of birth and breastfeeding?! Thanks for these amazing dolls!

Erin Morehouse said...

Being pregnant, and feeling a connection to the baby is most magical, I love the rounded shape and look of contentment on the dolls faces.

Cindy said...

I love MamAmor's ability to go from pregnancy, to birth, to breastfeeding, to babywearing. You can even buy a toddler doll and have her tandem nurse, and buy a Daddy doll too!

If I win I will be using the doll in my Bradley Childbirth education classes!

Gypsiski said...

I love the breastfeeding aspect!

Michelle said...

I love that MamAmors can breastfeed their toddlers as well as their babies! I love that they show all the stages of natural parenting in such a normal way, but that is probably my favorite part.

Carrie M said...

As a breastfeeding, baby wearing, home birthing mama, I LOVE these dolls. I can't wait to get one for my daughter! :) What beautiful pieces of useable art they are.

Erin Marten-Snyder said...

As a doula and student midwife, I love everything about MamAmor dolls! They are a great teaching tool for young children and I have loved watching their evolution. I would love to own one for myself.

Amy O said...

I love the softness of the dolls and the way the mom can hug/hold and wear the baby, the closeness and the bonding. beautiful dolls!

charlotte said...

I love that MamAmor dolls can give birth and breastfeed! i think both are important aspects in life and this is a great way to familiarize young ones with this process!

charlotte.bartee87@gmail.com

Knocked Up and Nursing said...

i love the fact that the dolls have placentas and umbilical cords!
Also, the hair! Love it!

Dr. Vaughn said...

I love that MamAmor dolls can teach children from a young age the amazing journey of birth and beyond!

Julia Mangan said...

I love the natural birthing aspect!

Amy Reiswig said...

I love the educational aspect of the MamAmor dolls: that they show birth and breastfeeding. I enjoyed giving birth very much, and I miss breastfeeding now that my son has weaned. I would love one of the MamAmor dolls to help celebrate this part of my life. anktangle@gmail.com

Mere said...

I love that by playing with this doll, my two little girls become aware of how beautiful and natural childbirth and breastfeeding are.

Hippie Housewife said...

I love the birthing aspect of these dolls!

anna said...

I love that she can breastfeed and wear her baby just like mommy

Doug.The.Wookie said...

This is so exciting. I like to try to share your FB page from time to time. These dolls are absolutely beautiful.

My favourite mommy aspect of the MamAmor dolls is that they're hand made. It may seem like an odd thing to say but in our house "making" is something that mom does. My 4 year old is convinced I can make just about anything with yarn and a crochet hook "mommy can you shay [crochet] me a baby mouse/hat/socks/dolly?" or "mommy I'm gunna shay you a pretty dolly". Hand made = most love in my house hold. So it might not make a lot of sense to some people but that's what I think makes them the most "motherly" is that they're %100 hand made, start to finish with love.

The fact that they give birth, bf, baby-wear and just look so happy is icing on the cake. Anything that normalizes the different aspects of motherhood that western society frowns upon (like breast feeding, baby wearing, actually educating young children about where babies come from.. I could go on but I won't) is just fantastic. Thanks for the chance to win

I LOVE the breast feeding aspect, but I LOVE the vbac dolls more. My first WA a csection, but hopefully 2nd is vaginal. I think these dolls are obviouslt made with care and detail in each her own unique style. I would rather give my daughter a single doll like this that teaches so much made with such love and attention to detail than 100 Barbies or American doI believe I remember reading about how there was travel to other countries to teach women how to make these dolls, if I am remrmbering correctly, that provides an income to a woman that may otherwise not have.

I wrote this and my name is Alexis Taylor, I am not sure if the aim profile worked or not

MommyTTC said...

Honestly I love it all!! I love that she can go through the different stages of motherhood, she can be pregnant, give birth and breastfeed. It is a tough decision but I'd probably say that my favorite aspect is the breastfeeding, I'm currently 6 weeks pregnant and have a 4 year old very curious little boy. I feel like introducing him to this doll could help prepare him for what is going to happen not only to my body but also introduce him to breastfeeding early. I don't intend to hide when I feed this baby as I never hid when my son was born and I think it would be nice to have him slightly prepared before witnessing it first hand.

Denise said...

I love that MamAmor dolls provide children with a healthy view of women as mothers. I also love the little latched on babes! So sweet! I adore MamAmor!

amelia'smama said...

What's not to love about these dolls in relation to motherhood!? I love that they are exactly what we mothers are: gorgeous, creative, nurturing, great teachers, all aspects of birth and simply amazing! As a mother and a Birth Doula I love that you have VBAC dolls!

Missa said...

I love that your doll would help me teach my daughter the things I love most about being her mother -- holding her in my belly, breastfeeding, even her unplanned c-section birth. They show that mama is a strong woman.

Sherry said...

I love that they can go from pregnant to having a baby to nursing. I love that they baby wear. I love the cloth diapers!! What is not to love about this doll??

I love that their is an umbilical cord and placenta.

I also love the fact it can help normalize birth and breastfeeding for kids who play with them, or as teaching tools to young kids.

DanielleOwens said...

I love that there is a doll to represent all women's birth journey, C section, vbac, twins, breastfeeding...I love them! I love that they show primal mothering, baby wearing/breastfeeding! LOVE IT!!

Anne said...

I love that they breast feed!

mean green mom said...

I love that They are such great teaching tools for girls (i have 3 daughters) and another babe on the way. I would love a doll to help my girls understand what this new baby will mean. They also would love to play with her :)
Thanks for the chance and Happy Mothers Day to you too!!

MommaGina3335 said...

I love that MamaAmor dolls give the feeling of a loving mother birthing and feeding her baby as nature intended. I see her having a peaceful homebirth and exclusively breastfeeding her baby. I would love to have one in my home to show a positive example of how art can imitate life.

junglemama said...

My favourite aspect is giving birth, fantastic to show children how they were born or prepare them for arrival of brother or sister. I would love this doll for myself, she is an ultimate attached mama!

Mistyplus4 said...

I would love to give my daughter the beautiful, Isabella, to have as a baby doll. My daughter loves to breastfeed her baby dolls. That is the greatest thing about your gorgeous dolls, their ability to breastfeed their babies. And she would simply adore a baby doll that could breastfeed. Thank you for giving us the opportunity to win one for mother's day! And thank you for your wonderful baby dolls! They are exquisite.

Blondey said...

MamAmor Dolls are so beautiful. I love the breastfeeding, natural birth (umbilical cord & placenta) and the babywearing. I would love to have this doll for my daughter so she can learn the best things to give a baby! :)

Jennifer said...

I love so much about these dolls! I'm a VBAC mom planning her 4th VBAC now and my kids love knowing they were born differently and seeing their siblings breastfeed and I wear my own babies too! We're having girl #3 and this doll would be cherished.

rebziz said...

I love these dolls. What a wonderful teaching tool for my children and theraputic for mama!

Laurel said...

What I love most is the fact that these dolls do things that we do. I have a boy old born via c-section and two girls born vaginally. We can talk about babies living in a belly and babies being born different ways. We wear our babies, we breastfeed our babies, we birth our babies. This is not a doll with which my children can pretend to portray breastfeeding a baby or pretend to carry a baby - the doll is meant to portray those things.

imherbal said...

These are the first dolls I have seen to celebrate the beauty of natural parenting. Birth, breastfeeding and bonding are so important to teach to our children and these are a wonderful embodiment of the strength and courage of mothers and the sheer magic and wonder of birth.

Selina said...

i love just how sweet they all are! and that they breastfeed of course.

Teresa said...

I love the fact that she gives birth. This was how I originally was introduced to MamAmor, through the birthing aspect, the breastfeeding, babywearing, tandem nursing, and everything else wonderful about MamAmor were pleasant benefits to an awesome doll.

Destiny said...

These dolls are amazing! I had never seen them before one of my friends "shared" this contest. I like that these show how real mommies give birth, feed, and carry their babies. Amazing detail so neat!

Beth Hauser said...

We love that our mom can VBAC- it was such a GREAT teaching aid for me before baby #3 was born and breastfed last month :)

Mama K said...

She's adorable! I like her sweet face and hair! But the fact that she's a doll that shows and supports natural mothering means a lot! There a re a lot of cute dolls out, but not many who give birth, breastfeed, and babywear! What a great idea!

Patricia said...

Hum... the thing I love the most ?? Probably the breastfeeding part :) She is the mom I want to be, better than the Barbie I wanted to be as a child. I would LOVE to see my 3 boys playing with this doll :)

katie said...

The natural birth and breastfeeding....and the sweet smile of contentment as she wears her baby. All is as it should be.

Momto6! said...

I love the continuity of the connection between mother and child. From pregnancy to birth to nursing to babywearing, the element of connectedness is still there!

Kara Seaton said...

Breastfeeding. All other dolls come with bottles, which is foreign to my kids as they rarely ever had one!

Dragonfly Damsel said...

As a CBE, doula and normal birth aficionado I have been wanting to start purchasing your precious babies to teach with-- I will keep my fingers crossed that I would win this to start me on my collection!

LadyBugPeace said...

I love MamAmor dolls they teach kids from an early age that birth and breastfeeding is natural!

Unknown said...

My favorite aspect of the MamAmor dolls is that they are always smiling! Whether they are giving birth, nursing a baby or toddler, or carrying their babies in a sling, they are always joyful before their families! I so would love one of these dolls!

Natalie Spiteri said...

I like all 4 motherhood aspects of MamAmor - pregnancy, giving birth, breastfeeding and cudly arms! Just like a M-A-M-A...
When I saw your beautiful dolls first, it crossed my mind - probably a snap was designed after the niple and the baby mouth and this idea made me smile!
I've got a boy almost two years aga and enjoy being a mother SO much! I thought, I'd buy MamAmore when I get a baby girl, but to be honest, I always wanted it for myself!

ZoesIncubator said...

I have to admit that aside from the obvious (birthing) I love how she can breastfeed and the way you can position her arms to cradle the baby. As I'm expecting I'd love to have something to show My 2 year old where her siblings are coming from and how she came into the world. I'd also like to encourage more play breast feeding for her and her dolls.

Zipper said...

I love that she breastfeeds. I feel like in many childcare environments dollies and bottles go together because they are easy. You want to be able to model and work through concepts of caring for, but for my family at least it doesn't feel authentic since my still nursing three and a half year old is comforted and cared for in another way. I feel like MamAmor is a strong beautiful woman bravely nursing uncovered like so many of us do each day silently saying for our daughters and sons this is normal, this is ok. I think she is a beautiful celebration of womanhood and life. (My daughter being three and very into her science topics though will love most that MamAmor gives birth and the little placenta :))

April said...

I love that they can breastfeed! Little girls love to mimic mommy, when she is breastfeeding baby brother. It is so healthy to have dolls like this. I support and encourage you to continue this work!

celichat said...

pretty! unique! breastfeeding!...♥♥♥

MrsSharp said...

I LOVE that she can give birth! What a great teaching tool! :-)

Steve & Lee said...

These dolls are what little people should be exposed to.....they are real and true to nature in all it's wonderfullness......pregnancy, birth, breastfeeding, compassionate, loving, pure.....they are gorgeous xx

heidi said...

I love the realistic shape of her. Her womenly thighs and hips allowing children a wonderful vision of self body image. My neice lives birthing her and the placenta that follows, my son loves the mummy to carry her baby in the sling :)

Julie said...

I love the 'reality' of these dolls. The pregnancy, the birth, the breastfeeding, the attachment, the placenta...it's all natural and a fantastic learning tool for my family.

I Thought I Knew Mama said...

I love all of the "naturalness" - especially the breastfeeding!

Esther Pelletier said...

I love how the babies come with attached cord and placenta! Makes them realistic. The breastfeeding and baby wearing are amazing. These dolls normalize what our society has medicalized. I love the attachment parenting.

adoyley said...

I Love all that MamAmor doll represents, that birth and parenting are natural beautiful things, and I love the VBAC mama's as I can show my daughter how she was born through the 'tummy' and my son that he was a VBAC, but my favourite part of all is the placenta, just gorgeous, can't wait to own a MamAmor doll !

Liza Gardner said...

Each time I look at your MamAmor dolls I just see how you have wonderfully captured a real Momma; her uniqueness, her personality, nurturing ways, and her over flowing love for her baby. Your dolls send out a positive message to your little ones that natural birthing, nursing, nurturing, and motherhood are all natural.

Sarah said...

Oh I love everything about this! I love that the baby has no pacifier or bottle. I love that there's a cord and placenta! I love that my kids could reenact their brother's homebirth and could "practice" for the birth of their next sibling! I love that breastfeeding, birth and babies are normal at our house....why shouldn't our toys reflect this? I also love that the give away falls on my son's first birthday and it would be an amazing memory of my first homebirth. What a spectacular give away!

Cassidy said...

I love that the MamAmor dolls look like the mommas I know and love, down to the slings! I feel like each of them might walk through the door of playgroup and sit down to breastfeed and chat with us. :)

Mama Britton said...

I love how beautiful and unique they are, just like how each Mama is. I love how the dolls breastfeed and also how hippie they are. I would LOVE this! Thanks so much for doing a giveaway.

Unknown said...

I love that when I asked my 5yo daughter what she liked most about the doll she said, "I like that it shows how the baby comes out of the mommy's belly." The fact that the statement flowed so naturally out of her mouth blesses me!!

Rachel said...

I love that she is shaped like a real woman, made uniquely just like we all are <3

1982Blair said...

I love the fact MamAmor dolls can be pregnant, give birth, breast feed and wear their babies these are all things that I love doing and are integral to my parenting style, it would be awesome to teach my DD about all of these aspects with the aid of a MamAmor doll

meghann said...

I love that Mamamor dolls inspire my own daughter to be nurturing herself. That she can gently nurse the baby, hug her baby, wear her baby and teach my daughter those gentle parenting musts. They're so wonderful.

GJ Hills We Are said...

They are beautiful reminders of what mothers do for their children, carry them, love them, feed them....

callibugsmama said...

I love how my dd can have hands on experience with birthing, breast feeding and baby wearing. I LOVE that she knows what a placenta is and where it comes from, she's only 2.5 yo!

celichat said...

pretty, smilling! breastfeeding, unique!!

the Melodious Mama said...

I love these dolls! They open a pathway in play to bring in elements of attachment parenting, natural birthing, nursing. They provide children with a warm, beautiful opportunity to express there nurturing nature. They are a gentle teaching tool for children, heck, even parents, who may not have experience with these things. Our daughter loves her doll so much and her brother is looking at her longingly. It would be wonderful for him to be able have a doll of his own!

Chris and Wanda said...

I love these dolls because they are always smiling...whether in pregnancy, labor, postpartum, nursing a baby or toddler, or carrying her baby in a sling, she is always full of joy and smiles! I want to be that kind of momma for my babies! Hope I win!

Vernita said...

The natural feeling of these beautiful looking and beautifully made dolls is wonderful. The birthing and breastfeeding and wearing...awe so special. <3

Akeyla said...

I enjoy that they are a perfect visual learning enhancer for children learning about childbirth. I would love to win this so I could add her to my collection for when I become a doula. I imagine it would be very helpful to have her around when there are siblings who are planning on being present at a birth and are learning about how things will go.

I love that these dolls are handmade and made of materials I would be happy to let my children play with. They are beautifully and lovingly made. I enjoy that they can be used to demonstrate vaginal birth, breastfeeding and in some dolls C-sections.

taymic16 said...

I love these dolls because they help make the concept of birth and breastfeeding a natural thing for the little girls who play with them.

Kate Althouse said...

It's hard to pick just one reason why I love MamAmor Dolls but...... I really do love their ability to breastfeed. It's sweet and it's such an important message for all to see!

MommaGina3335 said...

I love how they are a perfect example of art imitating life in a positive way. Natural birth and breastfeeding, two wonderful aspects of being a woman and becoming a mother I want to pass on to my children.

Adamarys said...

I <3 that MamAmor dolls not only breastfeeds and wear their babies, but they also have vaginal births after cesarean, just like me!

I love that they are so unique and one of a kind. There are no other dolls like this in the world! They are pregnant, give birth WITH a placenta and cord!!! AND they breastfeed. How incredible! What an excellent thing for a little girl to have...I think they are wonderful.

The mamamor dolls are great roll models for siblings. They can teach the young sibling the normalcy of birth, breastfeeding, and baby wearing. It teaches what's going to happen when mommy has the baby. I love the doll and everything it represents. Hope to get one soon.

Lemurkinsmommy said...

I love that the MamAmor dolls seem to just embody everything wondeful about motherhood, they look so calm and peaceful. I also love that they give birth, breastfeed and babywear <3

Kirsten said...

The fact that she represents the natural, beautiful way of giving birth and caring for a baby. Love all your dolls! If I don't win I will be buying onefor my daughter when I can afford it.

Jen said...

I love that she gives birth to her baby and nurses him/her. I also love that they can be attached, just like any other good mama.

Alisa said...

Besides everything (being pregnant, giving birth, breastfeeding, baby wearing...) I love that the baby comes with a placenta, so cool!

ikwe said...

I love that MamAmor dolls seem to represent a wild free-spirited mama who chooses her own path in motherhood.

Margaret said...

I love that she gives birth and breastfeeds! What a wonderful doll to teach the normalcy and wonder of birth!

Lauren @ Hobo Mama said...

I love the birthing! My son is fascinated by birth and I would love to have something tactile for him to maneuver. Also, I want to play, too! :)

I love these dolls they depict every aspect of motherhood.

BarefootHappyNess said...

I love that they embrace all aspects of motherhood, from their pure portrayal of the female body, in it's real ness, to it's ability to birth, nurture, feed, grow and carry our babies, showing that the beauty of being a woman is more than the size of your breasts and waist and the makeup you are wearing, it is in our true beauty which can't be imposed or distorted. I love your work xx

brysonmom5 said...

I love everything about her! My clients and their children would love to visit with her while at my office. She will be a doll that can show them normal :)

Kate Althouse said...

I love that these mamas breastfeed! So sweet and such an important message for all who sees these dolls.

itsonlyme said...

I love the play and learn aspect of this doll.

While I was pregnant last year, the one thing children kept asking me was, "how does the baby come out?" They understood that the baby was in my belly and growing. They knew that when the baby was big enough and strong enough it would come out, but how? I wish I would have had this doll a year ago. It would have helped me explain the natural workings. This is a fantastic doll. Birthing and feeding naturally is the two most important things to teach children about babies.

P.S. this is the first Mother's Day I will be a Mommy

Everett said...

I love every aspect of motherhood that MamAmor dolls literally embody. Birth (I love that they normalize vaginal birth, but validate c-section mamas), breastfeeding, and most of all, love. Thank you for these amazing dolls!

Michelle Walks said...

I love that she practices attachment parenting in a way that our family can be reflected in her. That includes breastfeeding and using a sling.
I love that she is a tool that helps moms to mother, by being able to have a model that reflects their experiences (including birth & breastfeeding). Also, I love that each one is unique, which also is a great things to model for kids. :-D

kaishra said...

I love everything about these dolls. I love that they do everything that I did for so long, pregancy, birth, breastfeeding, baby wearing. I miss those days

Sophie said...

I love the birthing aspect: no other doll do it and it's like celebrating the joy of giving birth and passing this to my daughter. Of course, I also enjoy the fact she's breastfeeding her baby too as I've breastfed mine. I was looking to buy one for my daughter but it's to expensive for my budget... :( I hope I'll win this beautiful Isabella for her!!

carmkw said...

I love that the dolls give a realistic view of childbirth and encourage positive body image.

Lauren Moylan said...

I love that she breastfeeds, and I love how she is a great example to my three year old of the baby coming (and how it will happen) in June!

Leanne said...

I think it's all great! It's so nice to see natural, ethically made dolls that respresent real motherhood so well. They're the kind of dolls you can pass down through the generations x

Sesch Wren said...

As a birth doula I LOVE the birthing aspect! Its wonderful education for young children. Such a beautiful opportunity to talk about how birth happens. It opens up a conversation with children that I feel is so important. Birth, (and breastfeeding too) has become something that we do not see. For so many it does not happen in our homes anymore. Many times, the first birth a woman will attend is her own, having never seen a birth before. Birth has become undercover and perhaps a bit taboo, when so many of us here know it can be an amazing, triumphant, tender, overwhelming beautiful part of life. These lovely dolls allow us to break birth out of secrecy! We can use them to talk to our own babies about how they were born. Or just in general, how birth works! What does it look like, feel like and sound like? What questions do they have about birth. Starting these conversations at a young age can change our birth culture. MamAmor dolls are really groovy mamas, and I would love to share one with my beautiful 10 month old daughter.

carolinamomma said...

I love all of the natural aspects of your dolls. They are absolutely fantastic! As a mama of three little girls and a student midwife, Isabella will be very well loved :) thank you for the chance to win!

Little Crunchy - Kimberly said...

MamAmor dolls make birth and breastfeeding normal. That is what I love about these dolls the most. Yes, the hair is so beautiful, the special clothing is lovely, the matching baby is so cute. The best part though is that unlike Barbie, MamAmor makes normal female mothering normal! It really is special! www.littlecrunchy.com

Ashleigh said...

I think my absolute favorite thing about these beautiful dolls is their ability to breastfeed. I cherish my nursing relationships with my children so much, and I love that it is reflected in these dolls.

Katie said...

The mamamor dolls birthing feature is the one I can relate to the most, as it is in birth that a woman transforms in the ether and becomes a mother. The nurturing of breastfeeding is another amazing feature. I don't think I would be the mother I am without having a natural vaginal birth and extended breastfeeding.
If I don't win this drawing I hope one day to own a mamamor doll to educate my children about birth.
Thank you for making such beautiful, high quality dolls!
Katie

Andrea said...

Aside from the 3 B's of birthing, breast-feeding, and baby-wearing, I love their big wide Mama hips. They teach my daughter, and my son, about women and mothers.

mediator.mouse said...

I was sure I posted a comment a few days ago but blogspot doesn't show a record of it!
I love that MamAmor dolls are mothers. They breastfeed, babywear, give birth and snuggle their precious little ones. A lot of MamAmor dolls wear a nursing necklace like I do! I love that MamAmor dolls mirror the way I parent. They are so beautiful in so many ways!

Stephanie R said...

I love that these dolls do everything I do with my own babies - give birth, breastfeed, baby-wear. I also love that they do all of this with funky style.

cherticek said...

I love that a child that has this doll sees birthing and breastfeeding as NORMAL. I also love that she wears baby in a sling ;)

Arizona Athena said...

I love the placenta and the umbilical cord, as well as the fact that she births vaginally. So useful in teaching children that babies don't just pop out of a zipper! They are attached to mommy until birth :)

Pixieleah said...

I love that these are birthing dolls. Beautiful creations with a powerful message. Thank you for your love and creations!

alannagk said...

I love that she babywears. Keeping my babies close to me is one of my favourite parts of parentjng my little ones!

Our Life With Two Boys said...

i love that they encourage children to explore the pregnant/breastfeeding female body... and normalize the body's function vs. the mainstream sexualization of the female body...

TulaDoula said...

I love that MamAmor Dolls can birth and breastfeed. Isabella is beautiful.

mumabuba said...

MamAmor dolls represent the natural birth and mothering process, by being able to birth, breastfeed and keep their buba close. But they also represent the individualness of every muma by all being different :)

mommalove said...

I love when they have their hair up or are wearing head bands! As a mama who's chances to shower are few my hair is always tied up and my bangs wrapped under some piece of fabric to help me feel put together. I love that their faces show joy and happiness. Being a mama is my greatest joy. Who care if I don't shower often. I've spent my day caring for and being with my children.

Cheryl said...

My favorite aspect of motherhood is the little sleepy grins when baby is sleepily nursing

Erin and Kripa said...

I love everything about them! I love that there is always a way to have them connected. Pregnant, breastfeeding, babywearing.. I have been following you since you started and I think they are so beautiful. I think they would be such a fun tool to have when teaching pregnancy and childbirth to my teens in juvenile hall or to my private clients that hire me. They are gorgeous and I hope to someday have one.

nadinbox said...

I love MamAmor dolls because they breastfeed and to explain her c-section birth to my daughter. They are beautiful !

Emily said...

I love that there is so much variety. Every momma is diffrent and beautiful and so is every doll.

shauna said...

Beauty, detail, and coolness of these dolls aside... I absolutely love that they normalize the natural state of mothering: birthing, breastfeeding, babywearing... Most dolls do just the opposite. They also represent the natural state of the mother: all colors, shapes, & sizes. Beautifully done. Thank you for sharing your craft-tastic vision and hard work.

Shawnstribe said...

I love the fact that your dolls can aid me in telling my 2 adoptive daughters why they didn't grow in my tummy, and how another mommy grew them and talking about their births and all the unbeknowns that comes with their story.
A difficult journey but a beautiful doll to help replay the story for as long as need be
Xxxx

agreenaffair said...

I love that they are organic and can breastfeed!

HOOKED {by kristen} said...

I love how she displays her love for baby through birth, breastfeadind and baby wearing!

Lianne said...

I Love that this doll helps me share with my beautiful girl what I value most in motherhood.

Miss Jess said...

i love that their hair looks so much like mine, that they are such a good size for little hands and that they show the magical beauty of how mammas care for their babies in many ways. i especially love that a lotus birth is an option with the baby dolls. i love that my sons and daughter would love them.

stephaniebenelli said...

I love these dolls! I love the babywearing :-))

Sandy said...

I love the breastfeeding aspect :) I love your dolls , so beautifully hand crafted . I want to own one to share with my children. My daughter knows about breastfeeding because I fed her brother , but now I am done and I would love for my son to know also and I think this would help :)

Jeanette said...

I think what I like most about these dolls is simply how joyful they are. x

Medicine Woman said...

Her realism in all facets of natural mothering!

Sandy said...

I do not see my comment but I hope its here :) If its not - I love the breastfeeding aspect above all , she is beautifully handcrafted and all your dolls are amazing !

Jennifer U said...

I love these dolls since I found you a couple years ago. I wanted one so bad while expecting my second to teach my oldest. I never was able to purchase one and i would still LOVE to have one to teach my kiddos about babies and birthing and breastfeeding. I love how REAL they are. and they are beautiful and unique, just like every momma and baby. :)

Kayleikins said...

I love that the MamAmor dolls are so crunchy! They encompass many of the parenting aspects I plan to incorporate when my little boy gets here. I love that they show that giving birth, breastfeeding, and baby wearing are completely normal. :)

Tania M said...

I love everything about MamAmor dolls! They carry a baby in their body, give birth and breastfeed, all the gifts of nature to women all over the world! I think it's a innocent and playful way for young children to learn what life is all about, what we are made of and capable of! Happy Mothers Day!! I hope I am the lucky one!!!

oromoctodoula said...

I love that these dolls can teach kids including my own hands on what a mommy does by giving birth and feeding and carrying. As a doula I think it is super important for siblings to be involved and understand what is going on. These dolls help greatly in that education process!

Kat said...

Simplicity and diversity. She doesn't need lasers that shoot or buttons that blink, a mother, like every Mamamor comes innately with a simple elegance that can comfort and nurture, that can educate and inspire. A pure spirit that is there as a guide and a companion. Mothers, just like Mamamors are beautiful and unique. Each is cherished and loved no matter the color of skin or cloth, the thickness of hair or yarn, the taste for high fashion or simple dress, whether she is sporting the latest trend with a teething necklace, or prefers plain slippers and a sling. Both Mothers and Mamamors have one common goal, to educate, inspire, nurture, and to LOVE.

Cupcake Kawaii said...

I love that they are realistic! Why shouldn't my kids know exactly where babies come from?
I love the breastfeeding aspect of it also. I love that you are giving people an option to purchase these lovely handcrafted dolls. I absolutely adore the fact every doll has a name and a different way of birthing. Every doll seems to have its own life story and personality.

dimplesandcurls said...

I just love that MamAmor dolls are just like me: they give birth naturally, they breastfeed, they babywear. My children can identify with her, because she's just like mommy. I also love that there's a nursing toddler available. Again, just like us :) Thanks for having such a beautiful giveaway!

Paulina Zettel said...

I love mamAmor dolls because they seem like happy confident mothers!

Jeannine said...

MamAmor doll are absolutely perfect for my precious grand daughter!

Tye-Walker Family said...

I love how they are breastfeeding and babywearing mamas :-)

Nik Graham, Doula-in-Training said...

I love these dolls in their entirety. I am a birth doula and I think having one of these dolls would be a tremendous teaching aid with the older siblings in the families I work it. How wonderful that the doll can be pregnant, give birth, and then breastfeed! And the slings are an amazing touch as I am a huge advocate of babywearing. The MamAmor dolls are also one of the most beautiful creations I have ever seen. Thank you for this opportunity to win one. :D

judit said...

I love breastfeeding the most, however all aspects of motherhood is depicted in your dolls the way I like it. MamAmor dolls are pretty, sexy, they are full of love and careing. Unfortunately in my country- Hungary- breastfeeding, giving birth in a natural way, are still issues that divide society. I truely believe that we can make a difference by, showing others that these things are just natural, there is nothing to be shy about. I would love to have one of your dolls :)

email said...

I love the raw honesty and openness about childbirth and breastfeeding that she represents. The fact that she is for children and adults to play with opens so many opportunities for conversation and private thought that is a real gift.

Robin said...

These dolls embody so many aspects of parenting I embrace! I love the birth and babywearing the most.

Christine Powell said...

I love the way these dolls portray birth in a non-threatening way for children. I have been coveting one of these dolls forever! Thanks for the opportunity!

Kyria and Nick said...

I love that they breastfeed! And that they have slings! I would love to have one for my daughter to have so she can mommy it just like I mommy her!

copperdo1022 said...

EXCUSE MY CAPS MY PHONE IS STUCK LOL

ODDLY ENOUGH I LOVE THE FACT THAT IT INCLUDES A PLACENTA! I REMEMBER AS A LITTLE GIRL KNOWING THERE WAS AN UMBILICAL CORD, AND KNOWING THEY CUT IT, BUT NOt KNOWING WHAT WOULD HAPPEN TO THE REST OF THE CORD??WOULD IT JUST HANG OUT OF ME??! HAHA! I THINK THEY ARE BEAUTIFUL AND WITH BOTH MY HOMEBIRTHs I KEPT THEM, MY SONS I PLANTED AND MY DAUGHTERS I ENCAPSULATED :)

Erin Darcy said...

The MamAmor dolls are just incredible.. My favourite? That they are made with love and passion, that they are real little mamas for our babies to really role play with. To give my daughter a beautiful handmade doll that does everything that she sees- that she loves role playing already- nursing her babies, watching birth videos. I would love to have a MamAmor doll for her for our next pregnancy, I know that she would adore it!

I love that she represents the proud strength all mamas have inside! She open a path to discussion with young and old alike normalizing birth and breastfeeding! She shows little ones that there is no shame in being a proud birthing nursing mama!! And learning through play is pure love!! Plus they are totally beautiful, lovingly made one of a kind pieces of art! <3
