Breastfeeding baby doll coming to a store near you

(CNN) – It looks like an ordinary baby doll, but it is far from ordinary. A new doll, that is about to hit store shelves, is ready to breastfeed.

The doll's maker says Breast Milk Baby teaches young children nurturing skills. 

A child has to wear a special halter to trigger the mechanism for breastfeeding. There are two strategically located magnetic sensors in the halter top. When sensors in the baby detect the sensors in the top, the baby makes a sucking sound.

The company hopes to have the new dolls in a store near you for $69.99 and requires batteries.
