BBC documentary explores the very real world of fake babies.
Want a baby, but not interested in all the fuss and muss? Then the new trend: fake babies, is for you! Fake Baby, A BBC documentary, follows women who instead of caring for human infants, are content to care for "reborns," sculpted hyper-realistic baby dolls. Like real babies, these dolls don't come cheap and can cost into the tens of thousands complete with tricked-out fake heartbeats.
Says one Mum about her cherished inanimate object, "She never grows out of her clothes, never soils them, it's just fabulous. The only difference is, of course, these guys don't move."
Yes, luv, that's because they're made out of plastic resins.
It's not only childless women who are jumping on the fake baby bandwagon. Some women who've already had children, but are experiencing "baby lust," are plunking down cash to become mommies all over again. Hopefully, they have the good sense to tend to their real, flesh-based children when they're done playing house.
