Iris Drink and Wet |
By Phyllis Schomaker
20 inches (50.8 centimeters)
Iris is a unique reborn drink and wet baby made from the Maggie kit by Cindy Musgrove from Bountiful Baby. She is 20” long with bent legs, weighs 7 pounds 6 ounces, and wears Newborn size clothing. This baby is a full body vinyl doll with a cloth body inside so that it can be weighted and it feels like a real baby when held.
IMPORTANT…The drink-and-wet mechanics involve plastic tubing and waterproofing of the cloth body so there is no concern about the insides becoming wet. Just take special care while feeding that the bottle does not drip excessively down the mouth and neck which could possibly seep inside the cracks or damage the paint on her face. Hold the bottle so that the special nipple fits inside completely; use a bib or burp cloth to keep her face dry, and use only distilled water in the bottle. Anything else could possible build up mineral deposits inside the mechanics and cause it to stop working much the same way as coffee pot does. To repeat…THIS BABY WILL NOT BECOME WET ON THE INSIDE NOR WILL IT FORM MOLD DUE TO THE SPECIAL CONSTRUCTION.
DO NOT REMOVE THE BODY PLATE OR ANY PARTS OF THE BODY. To do so will ruin the doll. The heads of drink/wet reborn dolls are not as floppy and cannot turn as far as other reborns because of the tubing system inside. Feed the baby no more than two ounces at a time, slowly, gently squeezing the plastic bottle to send small swallows into his mouth. If you follow these guidelines, you will have a lot of fun feeding your baby and changing her diaper. Although this baby is relatively waterproof, DO NOT IMMERSE HER IN WATER as that would result in overloading too much water onto the parts.
Iris has been painted with Liquitex artist/professional grade acrylic paints after proper prepping with Liquitex matt medium and proper curing before sealing. After detailed painting in many fine layers to achieve a realistic skin tone, she has sweet baby creases, hand rooted lashes, and sparse blond rooted hair of the finest quality.
Iris comes home to her new mommy with two outfits, a special bottle and pacifier made especially for her, several diapers, and a cuddly receiving blanket. All other clothing and accessories in the pictures are photo props and are not included.

Even as a child, I LOVED dolls...but only baby dolls. I wanted to grow up and be a mommy to a rainbow assortment of babies...of all different races and colors. Blondes, red-heads, Native Americans, Chinese, African American, etc. would make up my family. Of course, at six, I didn't understand how this could possibly be accomplished. I only knew that all babies were beautiful, and I couldn't possibly choose only one.
I grew up, had children and then grandchildren. Now I have found a way to have a rainbow collection of babies. I LOVE making reborns and I have a collection made to look like my own grandchildren...and they will NEVER grow up on me.
