There are quite a large amount of ABs and TBs who are closer in age for their little selves to toddlers or younger kids than actual babies. These *Bs might enjoy playing childish games, wearing padding and so on, but they still don't quite feel like babies. Being a helpless one or two year old just doesn't appeal to them. I should know, since I'm one of them :P
What I've noticed from talking to other sissies and LGs however is that in my limited experience, a far larger amount of them have an older "little self" than is average for *Bs. In another thread here, someone made the point that babies wouldn't be as aware of gender roles as older kids, so sissies whose little self is only one or two would miss out on some of the fun in the form of teasing from playmates.
Another point that might lead to a larger number of older sissies and LGs is the amount of stereotypical girly activities that can't really be done by babies. One year olds aren't going to be fussing over their dresses, painting each other's nails, looking forward to having their hair done up and so on. The inability to enjoy these types of activities while playing as younger age might lead to more sissies having an older age than other *Bs. Babyish activities that don't really have a gender associated with them, like playing with toy cars, hugging plushies, being diapered etc. don't really have a similar unlikeliness for a younger age, so most *Bs won't feel any pressure towards older activities.
So is that just a coincedental relationship between the ages that sissies that I talk to would like to be, or is this a more wipespread situation? Does this mostly apply to sissies, or is there a similar effect with LGs too?
