I love baby dolls! All of my children had baby dolls from a very young age. My first child was about 9 months old when we found out we were expecting our second (well, what we later found out was our second AND third). One of the best pieces of advice we received was to get him a doll. As the time for the new addition(s) approached, we pretended we were feeding and changing the baby doll. Then once our twins arrived, he could feed and change his baby right alongside mommy and daddy.
Dolls for every age!

It was a challenge to find a doll that would fit his little hands and was safe for someone who still put everything in his mouth. That is why I’m so excited about our newest toys from Käthe Kruse that recently arrived at Cotton Babies.
The Nicki baby doll by Käthe Kruse would have been perfect. This soft bodied doll is safe for even the littlest hands. Nicki Baby is dressed in a super-soft, one-piece sleeper and adorable pointed hat. She has an adorably simple face and cuddly body. Nicki baby is approximately 7 inches from head to toe (not counting the hat), so it’s perfect for little hands.
If you are looking for a doll that is great for play when away from home, you might want to check out the Rainbow Baby. This doll is slightly smaller than Nicki Baby, but cuddles a teething ring made of bees waxed beech wood – perfect for teething and easing sore little gums. The teething ring can be easily removed for washing.
Not a fan of traditional baby dolls? The Käthe Kruse Grabbing Star is a multi-sensory toy that can hold a pacifier, has fun a ring, shapes and faces to entertain your inquisitive baby. It helps baby recognize colors and shapes and to sort and feel while hearing rattles, bells, squeaks and rustling foil. Rainbow Baby and Grabbing Star are recommended for babies 3 months and up.
Use a Bink Link through the teething ring of either the Rainbow Baby or Grabbing Start to make this a perfect toy for the stroller, so you don’t have to worry about it hitting the ground. But even if it does, mom will love how easy it is to machine wash any of these great Käthe Kruse toys.
