Who says the newborn you fawn over has to be real? This Jezebel post about the British trend of childless women spending a pretty penny for life-like dolls that they push around in prams and tend to as their own frightened me.
Especially the clips from the documentary about the "moms," called My Fake Baby. In addition to toting the extremely realistic bundles of joy, called Re-Borns, on errands, the women dress and rock them. They also bask in the attention the wee ones attract and don't have to worry about waking up in the middle of the night or changing soiled diapers.
