Our New Baby was the predecessor to Bitty Baby.
Our New Baby was released in 1990 and available in Caucasian (with blond hair), African-American, and Asian-American. The dolls were marketed as a way to get children to adjust to having a young baby in the house. The dolls were gender neutral, unlike the later Bitty Baby; it was expected that the doll could be a younger boy or girl.
Each doll came with a book titled Our New Baby, a pop-up activity book with a baby that matched the doll it was sold with.
Each Our New Baby Doll came dressed in a white cotton sleeper with a small pink and blue heart print. The sleeper was trimmed at the neck with lace and closed in front with a zipper. The baby also came with a matching undershirt and cloth diaper.
Clothing and Accessories
As Our New Baby was marketed as being a baby that could be either gender, clothing choices for the dolls reflected this. Each outfit was available in both "boy" and "girl" styles.

These only came in one style which was gender neutral:
A small stuffed toy bunny called Little Bunny was available as a separate purchase for Our New Baby. This was possibly the precursor to Bitty Bear; however, Little Bunny was not a character in its own right and was much more of a toy.
Children's clothing to match Our New Baby's clothing was released for both children and young infants.
