Doc McStuffins AdoptionDoc McStuffins will become a big sister again, this time through the miracle of adoption!  On Friday, March 4, Disney Junior will kick off a month long series of Doc McStuffins episodes about adoption.  They will tackle topics like how to burp a baby and change dirty diapers to emotional insecurities siblings may face when a new baby or child joins the family.

I can’t help but wonder, what will the new baby McStuffins name be?  Will it be a boy or a girl?  We look forward to finding out!  4/1/2016 Update:  It’s a girl and her name is Maya Alana McStuffins!


Doc McStuffins is an animated children’s television series produced by Brown Bag Films. It was created and executive produced by Chris Nee and premiered on March 23, 2012 on Disney Channel and Disney Junior. The series is about a girl who can “fix” toys, with help from her toy friends.  The series receives positive reviews due to the show’s concept and the main character, as well as its portrayal of African-Americans.

The new episodes will premiere each week, beginning on March 4th and continuing through April 1st on Fridays at 8am EST on the Disney Channel.  I know I’ll be setting up my DVR to record these episodes!  Will you?

Check out the full episode schedule below (all episodes will air at 8:00 a.m. EST on Disney Channel):

“Baby McStuffins” – Mom and Dad announce that they are adopting a baby and give Doc a new baby doll to practice her babysitting skills.

“Runaway Love” – Doc’s little brother Donny worries that the arrival of the new baby will take attention away from him so he hatches a plan to run away. Meanwhile, Doc is so busy helping her parents prepare for the new baby that Lambie also starts to feel left out.

“Hooty’s Duty” – When Doc realizes that the arrival of a new baby means a new group of baby toys will also be coming home, she seeks to put one of her own toys in charge of them, and Professor Hootsburgh proudly volunteers for the job.

“Bringing Home Baby” – The baby’s gender will be revealed during this special 22-minute episode. Mom and Dad get the call that the new baby is on the way, so Grandma McStuffins arrives to take care of Doc and Donny. Grammy Award-winning singer and actress Dawnn Lewis (“A Different World”) guest stars in the new recurring role of Grandma McStuffins.

“Baby Names/Night Night, Lala” – The McStuffins family comes up with the name for the baby and baby’s new toy, Lala, has a hard time adjusting to her new environment.

    Awwww, my daughter loves Doc McStuffin, I just told her about this and she forced me to let her watch the video. LOL (Great now she’s going around telling everyone Doc McStuffin is having a new baby. Look at what you started! Sigh.)

    But I like that they’re tackling adoption.

    I can wait, my daughter is really struggling since her new brother arrived a few months ago and this may help her. Both of mine are adopted so subject close to home

    I only wish they were considering adopting an older child, because there are so many in need! Glad to hear that Disney is wiling to expose young kids to such a need, and that they will grow up with generous hearts and minds to care for ALL.

    So cute! I think it’s really cute, especially for kids, because most of them love cartoons. The adoption theme is also really interesting, it shows how it’s important to talk about it.

    I’m so pleased about this storyline. Our daughter, whom we adopted as an infant in 2010, loves Doc McStuffins! She has watched the episodes thus far with interest, and they’ve helped reinforce many things we’ve told her about adoption.
