Reborn baby dolls are often owned by moms who are unable to or will not bear their own babies for one reason or another and the mothers who have lost their babies. These babies are made of silicon and vinyl and feel exactly like real babies, extremely realistic facial features, and hairs the same as real babies and are purchased in place of real babies that they have lost or can’t be produced. Moreover, there is another group of people who simply prefer realistic baby dolls over the real human baby and this appears like an actual psychological disorder.
