You can't do anything about the size. Hopefully the seller provided the length and pictures before you purchased the reborn. There are 2 ways you can make it heavier. One check back with the seller to see if she will do it. This might be the best solution as you want the doll to still have the realistic feel and the seller has the same materials she used to weight the doll in the first place. Your other option would be to do it yourself. The head is attached with a cable tie. You can cut the cable tie at the connection nub to release the head. Then get a knee high nylon stocking and fill it with 2mm glass beads to achieve the additional amount of weight you want. Tie off the stocking to keep the beads in. Remove the polyfil from the top half of the body and insert it into the doll body. Replace the polyfil. Move it around until you get the feel you want. You may even need to add more. When you are satisfied reinsert a new cable tie thru the slot at the top of the body. Insert the head. Tighten the cable tie a little at a time until the head will still turn but won't come off.
You can go back to the store where you bought it and ask if you can exchange it for a bigger one. If they do not allow you to return it, then you will have to buy another one and make sure that it is bigger and heavier than the one you have.
