No matter how much daddy might try, he’ll never be able to prevent the occasional night time diaper flooding.
As a daddy to adult babies and diaper lovers, this might cause some distress. Maybe the diapers aren’t the right kind, they weren’t taped up properly, they need extra boosters or your little guy was already wet when you put him down for the night?
I know I’ve come in to find a boy with his Toy Story comforter pulled up to his chin and when I pull it pack I find that the little guy has soaked his Goodnites, his PJs AND the bed!

In my last post, I wrote about the different types of daddy/adult baby experiences. One of them, the ‘huggy’ experience is all about comfort, care and babying. Now, I don’t want to leave all you toddlers and little kids out there stranded, so I’ll write more soon about experiences that include more play, adventures, and maybe even (*gasp*) training pants.
In the meantime I spent a lot of this week running back and forth to the post office to pick up parcels. Stuff that I ordered months ago seemed to arrive at the same time as things I ordered week back.
I decided to pick out a few of the things that I got in the mail this week and share them with you. I’ve chosen the stuff that feels more “huggy-like” as a way of following up on my last post.

If you had a weekend with daddy what would it be like? If you had to capture the experience you were looking for how would you describe it?
I was thinking about this when I ran across a Web site for a nursery – a place where little guys or girls can go to be taken care of for an hour, a day or a weekend. Now, I know nothing about the place other than what I read on the Web site so this isn’t an endorsement or anything.
Their concept includes providing different ‘programs’ depending on someone’s needs and interests. For example, their “cutey” program is described like this:
This program is based on the Toddler stage. Activities are more versatile, as kids start becoming independent.
The equipment is adapted to adult-sized toddlers. Potty-training is a strong priority of this program. Food gets varied, as kids start discovering new sensations through touch, hearing, smell, sight and taste.
Tenderness and care are required to facilitate this growing period
Each of the programs includes a brief list of clothing, games and food and has an attached schedule depending on whether you were staying for an hour, a day or a weekend.
I found the list of programs somewhat inspiring. Different boys are often in different states of mind: some little guys have more ‘toddler-type’ feelings, or maybe they need more babying over a weekend.

I had some time last night to finish some of my early spring cleaning – emptying out a bunch of boxes from when I had renovated, mostly, and tossing all sorts of old papers, faded magazines and the other junk you collect for no real reason, it just sort of collects.
Now, I’m not a pack rat. I have a kind of Zen feeling to my house but there were a few things I simply stored away to sort another day. These included old boxes from when I was taking care of an adult baby, which goes back a few years now from before I moved.
Last week, I was surprised to find how many diapers I still had (I’m guessing at least a few hundred). This week, I was surprised to find I still had a fair number of clothing items.
(Mind you, I don’t have nearly as many as I think I’d need if I had a little guy around the house.)
But it had me wondering about how adult babies respond and feel about wearing toddler or baby-like clothing. Maybe there would be a few things that would suit anyone – but don’t tastes in clothing vary from person to person just like for adults? Or does it matter to an AB? Is being babyish enough?

It’s Saturday morning in the adult baby nursery. The light coming through the windows shows it’s a sunny morning, but it isn’t too bright – the pale blue curtains keep the room comfortably darkened. The night light doesn’t seem as strong in the day, but it still accentuates the bars of the crib and the change table.
Saturday mornings can be special times for the adult baby. Not every diaper-loving boy will need a nursery nor want one, but for those who do it’s a very special room for the baby boy. For those who have their very own room waking up in a crib can be like waking up from one dream into another.

What are the critical supplies to have on hand for a diaper lover or adult baby? You may not be able to have (or necessarily want) a full nursery, but it seems to me that at the very least you should have a well-stocked changing area for your little one.

I recently wrote about what ‘dad’ is thinking when changing an adult baby or diaper lover and the different feelings that might be going through his son’s mind. This is a topic I’m sure I’ll return to again and again.
When there is care and trust between two people there are all sorts of ways to express it. You can buy someone flowers, tell them how nice they look, or just be there to listen at the end of a hard day.
Whatever the psychosocial reasons that people come to love being babied or just diapered, there is something that happens amongst all of the feelings and experiences: a boy has a symbol of his willingness to be loved and cared for, to trust in someone else, and to let someone else help to lift his fears about being vulnerable or child-like.
