Ah, every adult baby's dream. Finding that special someone willing to take care of you and treat you as you "real" age. I have been a caretaker now going on 10 years and I tell you it has been a roller coaster of a ride. I have have good cubs and bad baby's, furry and non, and I can tell you I truly enjoy taking care of others. Maybe that's why i became a nurse, who knows. To this day not a week goes by, however, that I don't get at least 3 new requests from people asking me to be their Daddy. Now I for one and willing to give everyone a chance, but sadly most of these meetings end poorly. So I figured I'd toss out a few tips for those people seeking someone to take care of them or just too shy to ask.
Rule 1: Tell me your real age. Do not ask to be "babysat" by a legal adult if you are a minor. I cannot stress this enough folks, Paraphillic Infantilism is considered a fetish. If you are underage and RPing this with an adult, they can get into big trouble. So please be honest about your age up front or wait until your 18.
Rule2: Daddy needs time to himself I love taking care of my little ones, I really do, but I am human too. I have a life outside of this scene. Just because you see your Daddy or Caretaker online does not mean they automatically want to babysit you. Just like a real child, you can be exhausting. So please, no clingy babies.
Rule 3: Give a little, Take a little There are those of us, who prefer the caretaking role. That being said, the vast majority of caretakers are AB's themselves. Most do not want to play the role of the doting parent all the time. If your caretaker is like this, please do some role reversal. It will keep your relationship fresh and keep both of you satisfied.
Rule 4: Money Doesn't Grow on Trees There is nothing I like better than taking care of my charges. I might even get them gifts here and there, be it artwork, or occasionally something nicer (example: I bought one of my cubs a pacifier from pacifiersrus.com). If you caretaker does this for you, know it is a nice gesture. No matter the role I play, I am NOT your parent. It is not my responsibility to provide your needs. Just like many artists hate requests for free work, so do we hate requests to constantly buy you things.
Rule 5: Goo goo, gaa gaa Baby talk is adorable, I use it frequently to make my little ones feel small. However I don't use it all the time, ecspecially in online RP. It gets hard to read and slows things down. Please if your taking the time to type something out make it legible. Your Mommy or Daddy will appreciate it.
Rule 6: Act your age Nothing kills a session with me more than when an AB takes a role beyond its specification. If your playing an adult being treated as a baby then adult things are fine. However if your playing as an actual toddler or physically regressed into one, please note that most caretakers will find it unseemly to have "adult" play with you. It makes me extremely uncomfortable when I see a session heading in this direction and I will end it immediately if I do.
That being said I sure many of you have your own guidelines when looking for a Mommy or Daddy. Hopefully, I gave you some insight into what it means to for us. As always is you have any questions feel free to PM me here or on FA.
