Admit that this is what some people have been thinking for a long time when they realize that... you play with dolls at your age!
But then, what drives a sane person to buy a reborn doll? And surprisingly, there are several reasons!!
First of all, no, reborn babies are not there simply to replace a baby that we have lost or that we cannot conceive!
NO! Reborn babies are there for so many reasons, here are a few!
-First of all, it has been proven that contact with a reborn doll calms anxiety, at any age! Whether you are an elderly person in a CHSLD, or a young child, it helps a lot! Because of the baby's weight, but also because of the smell! (Yes, Passion poupons reborn babies are scented with baby powder). In short, it smells like heaven and it helps so much to relax!
- Reborn babies are truly therapeutic, they help some people get through depression, mourning, grief, boredom...in addition to fulfilling the need to mother, which for some people is very powerful and invasive.
- As you know, people in CHSLDs cannot bring their pets, whether cats or dogs. But reborn dolls are welcome! What Grandma or Grandpa doesn't like to rock! And moreover, they can serve as a "bridge" between the attendants and the beneficiaries, especially suffering from dementia or Alzheimer's, to enter into communication together. It is not uncommon to see these patients entrusting themselves to the doll rather than to the attendants.
- Obviously, we cannot ignore what they are best known for, helping mothers who are going through the painful passage of losing a baby.
- Or those poor mothers unable to conceive a child. Why not fill this gap with a reborn doll? Who has never heard those famous stories where couples adopted a child and subsequently miraculously conceived a baby! The same thing has happened many times with reborn babies.
- People with Down syndrome and people with autism love caring for reborn babies!
- Little cocottes or cocottes who won't have the chance to become a big sister or a big brother one day, love reborn dolls!
- Baby coming soon? Why not use a reborn doll to teach softness and how to take care of it to the youngest in the household?
- Symptoms of depression will be alleviated by contact with a reborn doll, which is not to be overlooked!
Me, I had the chance to conceive 7 beautiful children naturally… but they have already grown up! So I like (what am I saying...) I love rocking my reborn babies in the evening while listening to television! For me, that's happiness!
So whatever the reason that makes you want or need a reborn doll... be proud of who you are, assert yourself and above all make yourself respected! There is no bad reason to do yourself good!
They must not forget why they were created at the very beginning, the cinema! So much easier to act out a scene with a reborn doll than a real baby! And if the job is done well, I challenge you to make a difference!
