Hi i have a baby heather and she works fine ,
hope this is some help ,
look at the back of heather
you will see two battery compartments the large1.5v box and above that a button stating grow up
press this once ist stage baby
press again goes to 1 year old
press again goes to final stage two year old

directly below the large battery compartment
two rubber buttons
one grey one red
red means enter the programme mode
the time she first says is the time set to work on
push the grey button to change hour keep doing this till you get the desired hour to match our time
press red enter button
does this quite quickly or she will say exiting program mode

heather then instructs you
on to morning wake up time
press the grey button to enter wake up time keep doing this untill you get desired wake up time
press red enter button
heather now knows her wake up time

press red button again for night time sleeping mode ,and follow the same steps as above till you want her sleeping time press red enter her sleep time is stored
if you press the red button again she tells you her developement status , baby 1year old or two years old , confused yet i hope this is clearer than it types

ok other functions
below her aa battery box the small thin batterys there is a switch
to the left it says off eyes closed
when switched to this the doll will switch off with her eyes closed
when switch is in the middle she s on and ready to play
when switched to off eyes open heather is switched off but her eyes remain open
still havent understood the clear round button but give me time

under her left arm if she is facing her away from you is her ticklish spot she likes that sometimes if she doesnt she will soon let you know ,
below her tummy is another sensor this is her hug sensor so if she asks for a hug gently push her tummy and she will know , heather can hear you and she will look around to hear your voice her eyes move left and right and her head turns as she working out where you are
also peek aboo if you d like to play, gently place your hand over her eyes she will respond ,
also horsey if she wants to play gently bounce her up and down and be careful these dolls can suffer from loose or detached legs ,
other tips if she doesnt have an original outfit pick one that wont restrict head movements , as for feeding , or hair brushing im working out if she does need original items or another doll item will do
have fun

    oh by the way , if heathers tummy is pushed , that wakes her up from sleep mode so i think this works on to switch her on ,

    make sure the switch is on middle setting

Item number: 250325259543
Go to ebay, put this number in to see the doll and explaination of how she works with batteries.

ALSO can tell you about dolls.
I googled and got a lot of hits on this doll.,9171,966162-3,00.html also has an article about the doll coming out that year for Christmas, This is the TIME magazine, Dec 1987.
"Mattel's Baby Heather comes with an internal clock that tells it when to be "hungry" or "sleepy," but if the clock is not set correctly, Heather may wake up its owner at 4 a.m. wanting to eat."

Hope this helps. Grandma J.

How to reset Mattel little mommy real loving baby doll's name

Turn doll on. Then using a bent paper clip or something similar insert it into the "Reset" hole next to the pwer switchand hold ther for about 5 seconds. Upon removal, you will hear a narrator say "Hi little mommy. What's your baby's new name? When you hear this sound (bell) say your baby's name..." follow the directions spoken. If the doll did not recognize the name the sequence will begin again.

Need instructions for my meebas - thank you!

take a screwdriver and stick it in the tip of the cap, then look for the piece that holds the cap on, and push it up. then take your meeba out, and from now on, the cap will open when you press the button next to the flowers on the rim. you can still play the game through all seven levels I THINK. i did this successfully, cause the dumb thing wouldnt turn on!
