Question Asked By: Katy
Age: 17

Q:

Dear mummy

When I was younger my mum and dad caught me with diapers on when I was sleeping with my covers kicked to the side, so she woke me up took my wet diaper off and started spanking me asking why I am wearing a diaper at my age. When she finished spanking me she asked me where is the rest of the diapers because you will be wearing it 24/7 until she said so. That was 4 years ago and am still wearing my diapers doing all my 1s and 2s which I can't touch or change myself, which I have to ask to be changed. I asked her why because babies can't change themselves. It's her rules while I'm living under her roof if I am out with friends they will have to change me. I only wet at night so how do I stop my mum diapering during the day?


A:

Dear Katy,

Four years does seem a bit excessive. You could try talking to your mother and telling her that maybe she could stop the diapering. If not a total stoppage then at least only diapering at night, since you are dry during the day. Appeal to her maternal side. If all else fails report her to the child protective agency in your area. To be truthful what she is doing is illegal. The statutes are concerning endangering or willful harming of a child's health and unlawful corporal punishment or injury. These laws are on the books and what your mother is doing violates both of those. It is in the end, your decision. I hope all goes well for you. Good luck.

Question Asked By: Emma
Age: 19

Q:

Hi mummy,

I am 19 coming up for 20 and am still a baby and my mum still changing my diapers 24/7. She didn't potty train me at all, because she couldn't help babying me. So she changes me when I need to be changed and she can't trust me on changing myself. My question is how do I potty train myself or how do I change my own diapers?


A:

Dear Emma,

It is unfortunate that your mother has never bothered to try to potty train you. As a young adult about to enter society it can be a real hindrance. To potty train now will be difficult- if possible at all. When you feel the urge to go that is when you need to go and sit on the toilet until you go. With repetition your mind will make the connection to hold it until you are on the toilet. I do not know how long it will take. You might also consider talking to a doctor and seeing if they have any aids to assist you. Good luck.

Question Asked By: Mike
Age: 16

Q:

Hi mummy,

I can't stop wearing nappies. It's not that I want to stop. I just can't help wearing it is like a drug. I can't help it but to pee, mess in it. Is there something wrong with me? Is this normal?


A:

Dear Mike,

It seems in your life, your diaper is like a security blanket. When you are wearing you can relax and shake off the stress of the world. And yes you are quite right- it can be addicting. But out of all the things in this world that people use to escape- drugs, alcohol and the list goes on- diapers are not on anyone's police blotter as a dangerous item. So wear and be content knowing you are not weird or strange. In fact you may be more normal than the majority of your uptight and stressed out friends.

Question Asked By: Kim
Age: 17

Q:

Hi mummy,

My boyfriend wants to put me back in diapers because he say I would look cute in it. He has looked on websites with girls in it with diapers on. So should I do it to make him happy?


A:

Dear Kim,

The only reason you should have for wearing diapers is if YOU want to. No matter how much you love someone, you should never do anything just because they want you to. If the idea sounds good to you then I would say go ahead and try it. You never know, you could like it. But only if it is something you really want to try. Always be happy.

Question Asked By: Embarrassed
Age: 36

Q:

Thank you mommy for suggesting potty training, but even though I want to wear big boy pants it feels yicky when trying to hold back the urge push and pressure to release. No potty training! Plus my diapers have pretty pictures that big boys pants do not. Mommy are scented lotions, creams, and powders better for baby? Will it mask pee pee and poopy odors?


A:

Dear Embarrassed,

There is no reason why a baby can't smell sweet. All babies are you know! :) One lotion I happen to love is Johnson's & Johnson's baby lotion-lavender scent. Not only good for the skin but the lavender is relaxing and has been said to help little ones go to sleep. Be well.

Question Asked By: Diaperlover
Age: 14

Q:

I'm 14 and I wear diapers every other night. They are VERY tight and small. I was wondering if this can be bad for my privates if I plan to have kids around age 25-35. THANK-YOU!!!!!!


A:

Dear diaperlover,

I am sorry to say that yes, if you wear diapers or even underwear that is too tight it can do damage. The best option for you is to buy the next size up. If that size is an adult diaper and you wish to still have that baby print, consider using our diaper tapes. They are tapes made to be put on the front of adult diapers to make them more babyish. Whichever one you choose- please use a bigger size and be safe.

Question Asked By: Michael
Age: 15

Q:

Where can I buy diapers for my kind ?


Q:

Dear Michael,

There are a few places to buy diapers. You can go to a major department store, pharmacy or even your local corner market. And there is online ordering. If buying from a store and you wish to remain anonymous- consider buying from a store in the next town/village. That way no one recognizes you. If you order online have them delivered to a trusted friend's house if again you need it to be secret. Hope these tips help.

Question Asked By: Marcus
Age: 33

Q:

I'm looking for a live hypnotist to help me achieve total incontinence 24/7 for both bowels and bladder.  Have tried all premade online hypnosis with limited results and have been using only diapers 24/7 for over 2 years now. Or if you know someone who can make custom recordings that may be helpful.  (not the premade recordings that insert your name here poor quality trash I've already tried) thanks for any help you can give.


A:

Dear Marcus,

The hypnosis tapes don't always work, as you well know. I only recommend methods that are safe and reversible. I have a program that is totally safe. I have had members lose control in as little as 2 weeks. Of course each person is different. The link is http://www.deeker.com/Articles/twelve_month

Question Asked By: David
Age: 27

Q:

Hi I have heard it often said that when using diapers it always makes things much easier to have someone help change you (is what I prefer) Because #1 I was born with cerebral palsy. With this I have also struggled getting to the bathroom in a timely manner. I have taken steps to work wearing diapers into my everyday life. Ever since I have saved myself embarrassment and ruined clothes. My fear is how do I tell my dorm mates (people that I live with) how do I tell them about it without making it a  big deal. Also would you recommend I find a nanny or someone who can help change me when the situation calls for it?


A:

Dear David

In your case you can explain to your roomies that you have a medical condition that contributes to you having to wear diapers. And that the only reason you are mentioning it is in case they find any cases of diapers around. They'll know what they are for. They should be able to respect that. As for getting a mommy/caregiver that is totally up to you. If you feel you need one then by all means get one. In fact it might be nice to have someone if only to get a break from always having to change yourself. Perhaps on the weekends? I wish you all the best. Take care.

Question Asked By: Embarrassed
Age: 36

Q:

Dear mommy as I sit  here in a wet disposable diaper I wonder how I got here. I've even graduated to replica baby diapers. These disposables have no wetness indicators and has baby written across the front with teddy bears,stars, and pacifiers. There very cutsie in other words. I've struggled with my inner child or maybe I should say inner baby most of my life. Yet we get condemned by some people who think were sick, and maybe we are? Even if that is the case they don't understand what we go through. Most likely there is a deep emotional need to be a baby again, and unpotty trained. I'm no therapist, and not enough research has been done on AB's and DL's. The need to be diapered and treated like an infant is impossible to break. I have tried many times, and threw away many diapers hoping to kick the habit. I should see a therapist to help me me work through to find the root of the need. For those of you who struggle with this need I understand where your coming from, I too am stuck in diapers. I have used them for their intended purpose which includes pee pee and poop poop! Is diaper a security blanket for us? Are we sick or does this go deeper into our psyche? Maybe it's rooted in childhood? Changing time is a special bond between mother and child. Once you are potty trained something gets taken away. Maybe we were not ready for the potty at that time. Once again I do not have the answers, and it goes deeper than simple addiction. It pretty much happened in childhood, because as early as I can remember I wanted diapers. My mother even threatened to take me to the doctors when I used an old cloth diaper when I was 5 or 6. I was deathly afraid of doctors back then. After that it got buried only to be reawakened in my teen years by a dream. In any case I believe we can  be cured, but my plan would require a place many AB's dream of, but may have different opinion at the end. It's simple, you should go back to diapers full time 24/7. This means you need to unpotty train yourself. It sounds like an AB fantasy. A year or two in diapers 24/7 is not as fun as the fantasy sounds, but I think it would serve our needs. However I can't guarantee success? Therapists should look into this. Until a cure can be found I guess I'll just keep a drawer full of diapers. Thank mommy for all your help.


A:

Dear Embarrassed,

We all go through the soul searching at one point or another. Why are we what we are? Who knows. I have seen all sorts of people working as a nurse. People are the most vulnerable when they are sick- their defenses are down and they have no armor up. It is then that you see into their souls. In all my years I have come to a few conclusions. AB's are not deviant, weird or twisted. The ones who say they are are ignorant-learn your facts before you make a comment. ABism is misunderstood. There has been some positive exposure but not enough. Some still put AB's and pedophiles together. All that aside I believe that all an AB wants is to accepted for who they are. Love. Simple. When you were a baby, you were loved unconditionally. You only had to exist to be loved- no jumping through hoops or trying to please anybody. As an adult it seems everyone puts a price on their love. You know, if you dress this way or earn so much money then I will love you. Who wouldn't want to go back to when all you had to do was smile to get a hug? Of course I am no psychologist but I do believe there is some truth in what I say. Be proud of who you are. Wear with pride and if it happens to be 24/7 then so be it. All we can do is wait for the rest of the world to get up to speed until then happy diapering!

Question Asked By: Tim. S
Age: 37

Q:

Where can

I get adult diapers with baby prints on them. I want my wife to treat me like a baby. What do we have to buy for me to be a baby.


A:

Dear Tim,

Sadly there are very few adult sized diapers with baby print. But you are in luck- we sell diaper tapes. Tapes to apply to the front of your diaper with your choice of design. We have everything from baby bottles to trains to teddy bears. As for the general items you would need. diapers, baby wipes, bottle (if desired), pacifier (if desired). some even drink formula and eat baby food- it really is whatever your personal tastes are. You can do as little or as much as you and your wife are comfortable with. Good luck.

Question Asked By: Todd
Age: 19

Q:

I wasn't completely potty trained until I was 5 and stopped bedwetting at 6. I remember wearing diapers all the way back to the age of 2 and my toddler years I consider my best years of my life. I loved wearing diapers then. I didn't understand though that when I was potty training that I would lose diapers for forever. After I was out of diapers and pullups and into underwear I asked my mom for pullups, she didn't say no but didn't buy them either. I was hurt inside from not getting to wear diapers anymore but I didn't express it. My question is do you think that because I wasn't potty trained until so late and have so many memories of wearing diapers all the way down to age 2 that is the reason why I have a diaper fetish in the first place? Another question I have, as a parent if you were my parent during my toddler years do you think it was necessary for me to be out of diapers at that age or would you have compromised with me and let me wear them at home if I wanted to?


A:

Dear Todd,

No one is really 100% certain of why some persons become diaper lovers. Is it natural or something you learn? It is possible that wearing the diapers for so long gave you that sense of comfort and safety. And as you got older you wanted that feeling back. Who wouldn't? As for me I only potty-trained my kids when they were ready. When they showed signs of wanting to use the bathroom that was when I could actually start the training. If the kid is not ready, you would be wasting your time. So in your case I would of waited or as you suggested let you wear at home- maybe a pull-up. At least as an adult you can live your dream and be diapered to your heart's content. Life is short-be happy.

Question Asked by: Greg
Age: 18

Q:

I get paid once a month and I buy disposable diapers. I want to know would it be easier to buy and use cloth diapers?


A:

Dear Greg,

Cost is always a factor in deciding on cloth or disposables. Cloth is alot cheaper- you purchase once. The down side is you have to launder them every few days, so you lose the convenience. For disposables the winning factor is convenience- use and then into the trash. The down side is the cost. So bottom line is if cost is the ruling factor for you then cloth would be the way to go. With proper care and washing a good set of diapers should last quite a while before needing to be replaced.

Question Asked By: Michael
Age: 31

Q:

My question is my wife/mommy is totally new to the concept. She has accepted the way I am but she was looking for people to talk to and get ideas on how to be a good mommy. She is a little overwhelmed and is just looking for a hand to hold till she gets her sea legs :) Thanks 


A:

Dear Michael,

You are indeed fortunate to have an understanding partner. To be a mommy isn't all that difficult. As to how involved you become is really a matter of personal choice. Some have serious role play where the 'mommy' will feed baby food and a bottle. Others are just content wearing a diaper and having adult conversation. It is a matter of preference. Nothing you do would be considered right or wrong- as long as both of you are comfortable then it is right. If your wife has any specific questions she can email me or Stanley. Tell her relax and let her nurturing side come out. That is all the two of you really need.

Question Asked By: Baby Floyd J
Age: 46 going on 2

Q:

Dear mommy I stared school to get my GED and my teacher told me to leave my diapers at home. What can I do? My doctor told me to wear them 24/7 because I wet and poopy my pants. Should I get a note to give to my teacher? So he will know that I am incontinent?


A:

Dear babyfloyd,

I would ask the teacher why he is not letting you have your diapers. And tell him that you can provide a doctor's note for your need. It would be against the law for him to not allow you the proper medical care you need. So ask him and give him the letter. And by the way, way to go on going for your GED!

Question Asked By: Dakota
Age: 14

Q:

Hi my name is Dakota and I am 14 I have been wearing diapers since I was 11 but I can't get diapers, what should I do?


A:

Dear Dakota,

It can be difficult to try to get diapers as a young teen. For money- allowances, odd jobs and even recycling. To buy- buy from a store not near your home, order online. To store the diapers- find a secret place you are sure parents won't find like outside, basement, attic, another option is if you have a trusted person who could hide them for you. I just touched on a few things for more details e-mail me directly (Gypsy12143@yahoo.com). Good luck.

Question Asked By: Baby Floyd
Age: 46

Q:

Dear mommy I eat out a lot at restaurants. My question is when I eat out I make a mess when I eat. Should I use a bib? I eat like a toddler baby, I spill my food down my shirt and my drink. What can I do. Your friend Baby Floyd.


Q:

Dear babyfloyd,

Of course if you are making a mess the polite thing to do would be to wear a bib. It will help keep the restaurant clean and the staff happy as well as helping to cut down on the stain on your clothes. They sell many excellent bibs. a long one with a pocket on the bottom would be best for you to catch the liquid. One site you can look at is:

Question Asked By: Paul
Age: 13

Q:

Dear mommy, I want to start wearing diapers again. And I want to were them 24/7. How do I un-potty train myself. And how do I wear them at school without anyone knowing. You got any ideas?


A:

Dear Paul,

I only recommend methods that are non-harmful. There is one program that I support. Be aware it will un-potty train you for night and day. So be certain this is what you want. As for wearing them to school, it can be difficult to hide. A few tricks are to wear like a set of keys that hang to hide the sound of the diapers. Also wear a regular brief over the diaper to keep the sound down and also if anyone sees your waist- it's the brief logo they see and not a diaper. These are just 2 tips. I do want to again caution you about using the program- it will make you incontinent. But at least if you want control back a few years down the road, you can re-potty train yourself as with this method you didn't damage anything.

Question Asked By: Bill Nealon
Age: 34

Q:

Hi mommy I have been wearing diapers for 10 years but not all the time. I just started 24/7 last year. I have come across a few AB stories titled about getting fixed something about a valve or device put into the small intestine to help loose control of your bladder. I was wondering is this valve or device true or is this just a story line? If this is true could you please fill me in on the details of this device of where to go for the procedures. I happen to be what I call an explorer of things in life. There was something about the large intestine also but I won't go that far. Thank you Many Blessings


A:

Dear Bill,

I am a strong critic of anything that does harm to a person. I have not heard of this procedure. However you should be very careful of what you do to your body. It is the only one you have. I have known of people who have tried one of these extreme measures and ended up incontinent, many times having several painful bladder infections along the way. At first they were happy. But time went on and they married and started a family. Now it's to the store to get diapers for the baby and for themselves. Having to hide it from co-workers and all the drama involved. Ended up regretting the decision made years earlier. We do have a non-invasive program for incontinence. It is safe and totally reversible. Members who have used it have lost control in as little as 2 weeks. If you want to check it out, you can go to http://www.deeker.com/Articles/twelve_month_

Question Asked By: Tim
Age: 37

Q:

I wear diapers at night. I like the feel of diapers, is it ok to wear diapers 24/7? Is there diapers with baby prints on them.


A:

Dear Tim,

If you can fit into the Goodnites they have some nice designs on them. But if you wear adult size diapers there aren't too many with designs. We do however have a diaper tape store. Diaper tapes are strips of tape with babyish designs on them that you apply to the front of your plastic backed diaper- giving you that baby look. For only a few dollars ( $4.50 for 8 tapes and up US) you can get the look you're after. We have toys, flowers, baby bottles, trains, planes and many others. Check it out http://tapes.homestead.com/Catalog.html. There is another brand that sells the diaper with the print already on them called "Bambinos". You can give those a try. Take care.

Question Asked By: Aryn
Age: 26

Q:

Dear Mommy:

As long as I can remember I have turned to infantile comforts. I never sucked my thumb as an infant, but I remember doing it on the sly as a child. Around 10-11 years old I wore Goodnites once in awhile. I didn't physically need them, I just liked the way they felt, and made me feel. I bought baby bottles and pacifier's at that age, and up through my teen years.

Recently, I have started to feel like I need this stuff more and more. While I never quit completely sucking my thumb, I hadn't done anything else in a few years, save the rabbit that I sleep with.

Right now I wear diapers when I have the chance, have a pacifier and a bottle and continue to suck my thumb. It all makes me feel very comfortable and safe. Especially as I am dealing with some things in therapy from childhood that originates from around the time that I have my first memories of regression.

I feel very shameful about all of it, even though those who I have told understand and are very supportive. This isn't something that I especially like about myself, but I do really like the way it all feels and makes me feel. I don't want to give it up, and the thumbsucking I don't think I could. Is there something wrong with me?


A:

Dear Aryn,

As a baby we are loved and adored just for 'being'. We are lavished with attention and love and asked for nothing in return but love back. Who wouldn't want to live that their entire lives? You have a more sensitive and gentler soul and have realized all of this from the beginning. There is nothing wrong with you. I bet if compared to some of your friends you're probably the one most adjusted. In my opinion you held on to those infantile comforts to be reminded of when that time in life when just to be you was enough to be loved. The world can be a harsh and unforgiving place. To be able to get back some of that unconditional love we enjoyed as a baby is a gift. So curl up with your rabbit and suck your thumb! You're alright with me.

-Hugs Sandra

Question Asked By: Mathias
Age: 15

Q:

Dear Mummy. Do you have any good advice that can keep this diaper love secret but also a advice how to buy diapers without them knowing they're for me? I have all the money but I am just nervous and afraid that someone will recognize me.


A:

Dear Mathias,

When buying diapers, if in person go to the next town and buy them there. Chances are no one will know you. If buying online have them delivered to a trusted friends house- the friend can say it's for you and that the reason it's going to the friend's house is because it's a surprise gift for someone in your family. This way your friend doesn't have to explain to their parents anything. I hope some of these ideas help.

Question Asked By: Person
Age: 13

Q:

I love diapers but can't figure a way to get them into my apartment without my mom knowing. Could you tell me how to, or how to tell my mom I want to wear diapers again?


A:

Dear Person,

If you are able to buy some you could get them into the house in your backpack. Another option is if you know of a time when your mom is not home try to get them there then. You could of course find a hiding spot outside of the home. This works best for some who have moms that inspect everything. Another option is to leave them with someone else-this of course would have to be someone you trust to keep your secret. Should you tell your mom? Only you know the answer to that. Is she an open minded person and would listen to what you have to say about it? If not, I wouldn't mention it quite yet. I wish you luck.

Question Asked By: Johnny
Age: 19

Q:

I want to tell my mom I live with, her and my sister that is 18. Should I just let her catch me in the diaper or how should I go about it? Also I drink baby formula from a baby bottle 3 times a day, about 2 bottles each time is that ok cause that is all I have to eat. T Y


A:

Dear Johnny,

Are you sure you need to tell your family? You are over 18 and entitled to do whatever you want as an adult. If you want to tell them, I would just sit them down and explain to them why you like to wear and how it makes you feel. Be honest and be prepared. They might have questions. I wish you luck with that. Concerning the baby formula- the first thing is DO NOT under any circumstances drink the Iron-enriched formula. The iron content is too high for an adult and can cause health problems in some people. If you like the taste, by all means drink. However the nutrition in formula is not enough to sustain an adult- you will need to supplement your diet with actual food. The usual- grains, fruit, meats and veggies, all to maintain a healthy body and mind. I wish you luck.

Question Asked By: CZ
Age: 18

Q:

Dear mom,

My question today is about wearing around my girlfriend. She has helped me put some on and said she wouldn't mind helping me change, but still thinks its more of a problem or odd. Is there anyway to get her used to me wearing diapers or helping me change more?


A:

Dear CSZ,

Unfortunately we can't change someone's mind about something once they've made it up. What we can do is to educate them about it. Help them to re-evaluate their opinion. She is at least accepting of it. With time and information perhaps she might decide to change her feelings about it. Good luck.

Question Asked By: Alex
Age: 14

Q:

My parents do not approve of me being a tb/dl and I really want to stay in the scene because I really like it. So what would be my best alternative with diapers and such?


A:

Dear Alex,

I am not quite sure what you are asking. Are you asking about a diaper alternative? If you are then try purchasing some cloth diapers and use them instead of the Goodnites. The only cost on you would be of course the initial purchase but after that only the cost of laundering them. There are many companies that have good cloth diapers and plastic pants. If buying is not an option, consider making your own. You can use towels or old T-shirts, anything made of flannel really. I hope I have helped answer your question. If you need more info just write again.

Question Asked By: Etienne
Age: 12

Q:

Dear Mommy,

I want to start wearing diapers but I live too far from any stores and I can't order since I don't have my own address. So could you figure this out for me pleaaaaase?


A:

Dear Etienne,

Since going to a store is not an option and ordering is not an option, that leaves only one thing. You are going to have to make your own diapers. It is not as hard as you think. You will need some towels. If you think your parents might notice some towels missing, you can use old T-shirts or anything flannel instead. Cut to size and pin. You can experiment with the plastic covering- some use garbage bags others duct tape together vinyl. I wish you luck.

Question Asked By: Embarrassed
Age: 35

Q:

Mommy it's morning here and this little boy just woke up in a fully loaded diaper. I admit it doesn't smell to bad, but I can feel the familiar lump in the diaper. Must of peed and pooped last night, which is not uncommon. At least the diaper held. Have to admit potty training feels so far away right now especially since waking up with an empty bladder, and bowel feels good. I do hate the changes since the baby wipes are so cold. Anyway since my diaper is already dirty and holding I may need to pee shortly can I stay in this diaper for some time to pee? Probably won't be long, is it safe to wait before changing a fully loaded diaper?


A:

Dear Embarrassed,

In the mornings you should change as soon as you can. You have been in that same diaper all night. Now you don't have to get crazy and run to the changing pad or anything. You can take a little time to wake up, drink some coffee or whatever beverage is your choice. But within 30 -45 minutes I would definitely be changed. The longer you sit the higher the chance of a rash.
