A woman whose Tiktok handle refers to her as ‘Mummy of two reborns’ has received criticism for feeding her babies powdered formula’.
The woman's ‘babies’ are actually ‘reborn dolls,’ which are lifelike dolls that people buy after experiencing miscarriage or infant loss. However, Summer-grace and Reggie-lee, the dolls in ‘Mum to two Reborns,’ appear to be considered real human children.
In a recent clip shared by her, people are outraged, because she can be seen feeding her baby formula despite the product’s availability being less international. And the irony is that the babies aren’t real so the formula is wasted.
The video has 800k viewers and the audience is quite upset with it.
One viewer requested her to not use Kendamil (powdered formula) as the supermarkets do not stock them often and it becomes difficult for other mothers with ‘real babies’ to get them.
Another user shared that she has been to the supermarket three times in the last few days to get Kendamil for her real daughter but couldn’t find any. The third user suggested keeping the tin, washing it out, using milkshake powder or powdered milk, and not taking supplies from the babies that need them. Another user shouted at the woman to not waste valuable resources.
Even other Reborn Dolls owners commented that it's ridiculous that she is using real formulas and creating a bad reputation for other reborn doll collectors.
Her other videos show her morning routine with five kids including changing diapers. This again prompted viewers to ask her to reuse the diapers because they're scarcely available in some places now.
One user asked her to simply reuse the nappy so that it will be less expensive for her.
