I, personally, do not label it a disorder. I look at it as a desire or a fetish. Mental disorders are usually impairing. Infantilism isn't impairing, unless of course it's taken over your life and you're obsessive about it and can't fulfill your daily responsibilities. If that was the case, I'd call it a disorder. But if it's just a desire you feel and you like to pretend you're a baby or wear diapers or be babied by your wife, SO WHAT?
However, I've read on multiple internet articles that it is labled as a "sexual disorder" (this is, of course, for those of us who are sexually aroused by the thought of being a baby). Infantilism is also mentioned in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders. So I think most would probably call infantilism a mental disorder. I really think they misunderstand it a lot too, though, so I wouldn't pay attention to what they say about it.
No, it's not your fault. Did you wake up one morning and say to yourself, "I'm going to be an infantilist for the rest of my life! ^_^"Originally Posted by lilbabymikey
I highly doubt it.
