Do you let your DS play with baby dolls?

I was just wondering how many of you mama's let your son play with dolls? Does your DH hate it? Not mind? I let my son have one baby doll and he loves to play with it. I dont see that there is a problem with it. Not trying to start a whole big thing ar anything like that I was just wondering is all.

My son has 4 sisters (soon 5) so we have lots of dolls around. Strangely enough, he wont or hasn't ever played with them. We never did anything to discourage it. He justs prefers to play with his trains.

Absolutely. He even nurses them.

My husband used to say things when he was younger (and didn't play with anything, much less dolls) about how it was weird but now he gets kick out of how sweet he is to all of his "babies". This includes everything from a stuffed doll that my Grandma made him to a small plastic stegosaurus, who he lovingly refers to as "Dino".

Daily you can catch him 'svat' (swaddling) something and putting it to bed. It's too cute. He will make a great daddy someday.

ETA: He regularly plays with cars, blocks, books, trains... as well.

My son plays with them, but after a few minutes he starts banging them against the wall.

yes, no big deal here. Although DH did laugh when I ordered their retro kitchen set from Pottery Barn for Christmas are there no male chefs out there???

ABSOLUTELY! Like Shannon's little guy, my son would "nurse" his babies, too. I don't see anything wrong w/ little boys showing an affection towards a doll of some sort. Not everything has to be trucks bangin' together, dinosaurs, or Transformers! KWIM?

We don't have any dolls but DS has a lot of friends that are girls so they have many many dolls. He thought the head of one doll was a ball and was trying to remove it from the body so he could throw it. When he saw the face he dropped the doll and kissed it. For the most part he doesn't have any interest in them or stuffed animals either. If it's not a ball or spin it's worthless.
