Over the years, I've thought about this a lot. Did my parents contribute to my infantilism? My conclusion is through various ways, yes. I am not saying they were entirely responsible, but they contributed. Let me explain. I was toilet trained at 2.5 years mostly because my brother was born at that time and they did not want two kids in diapers. Despite the numerous accidents I can remember, my parents refused to investigate the matter with a professional or allow me to go back to wearing diapers. As my mom would say many times, diapers were for babies. Instead, I was spanked for accidents and told to grow up. As fate would have it, when I was around 5 we moved next door to a boy who was just a little younger than me, but was still diapered full-time. I witnessed his mom changing him and giving him all the time in the world to get out of diapers. That's when things changed for me. I wanted to wear diapers no matter what my parents said. That's when I also wanted my mom to be like his mom. I've never considered it as wanting to be a baby. I just wanted support and security for my delayed maturation. I'm wondering how many other people were in similar situations.
