Take care of your reborn doll’s daily life
First and foremost, be gentle with your reborn, much like you would treat an actual infant.Being too rough with reborns can result in limbs or hair detaching and can permanently damage the doll.
Avoid direct sunlight and extreme heat. A reborn is typically made from vinyl, which is susceptible to age and fatigue when exposed to the harmful UV rays of the sun or an excessively high heat. The sun can cause the vinyl to become discolored or to break down. Other heat sources, such as a kitchen stove or a hot car, can cause the vinyl to warp and deteriorate. Finding them a spot in the house that is removed from excessive heat sources and direct sunlight will prolong the life of your reborn doll.
Avoid objects that can stain your doll. When dressing your doll in new clothes, be sure to pre-wash them to avoid colors and dyes from transferring onto your doll’s vinyl parts. Highly pigmented items can stain the vinyl, so be sure to test certain materials and fabrics before dressing the doll. Rubbing a fabric on a sample piece of vinyl will determine if the colors will bleed.
Keep out of reach of pets and children. Nothing can ruin a reborn doll quicker than having Fido playing fetch with it. Unsupervised children can also be too rough with reborn dolls, so make sure that an adult is present to instruct them about the proper care and handling of the doll.
Keep magnetic parts away from individuals with hearing aids, pacemakers, or metal implants. These magnets can interfere with their electronic devices. You will also want to avoid getting the magnets near cell phones, tablets, computers, and hard drives to avoid damage. Some reborn dolls come with magnets already inserted into the head, so check with the artist or manufacturer to see if these magnets will be an issue.
keep your reborn doll clean
Even if you do your best to keep your reborn doll in the perfect condition you got it, it is inevitable that some dirt and dust will accumulate on it. Small amounts of dust is unlikely to cause any series issues but thick layers can slowly damage the paint and integrity of your reborn. By occasionally cleaning your doll, you can prevent the buildup of dirt and keep it looking immaculate.
If your reborn is just dusty, take a feather duster or lint-free dusting cloth and give it light but thorough wipe. Using cleaning products is not recommended as they may contain harmful chemicals that could stain or stripe the paint of your doll. You should be able to brush it down with a basic feather duster to remove the majority of dust and dirt on its surface.
If your reborn is dirty to the point where a duster cannot do the job then it is recommended that you use a slightly damped cloth to wipe away the stains. Be very gentle and do not scrub the doll as this will damage it’s paint and coloring, Always use a towel to dry it and try not to get the stuffing wet to prevent mold.
If your reborn baby doll full silicone is extreme dirty, you may want to consider sending it back to it’s original artists or find another reborn artist to give it a thorough clean and possibly replace the body and stuffing as needed.

Putting on tight silicone baby doll clothes will put pressure on limbs of your dolls and is likely for them to come off and or even in some severe cases tearing off your doll limbs.
Be careful while using dark clothes

It is recommended that you should first wash dark color clothes and dries them properly. After that, you need to do a rub test in which you need to take a piece of white paper and rub it against dark colored reborn baby clothes.
