Hi, all. I just posted in the intro section, but I wanted to elaborate here.
I have no clue if I would be considered having an "AB" fetish or not. (Like I said in my intro post, I am so new to all of this so please forgive me if my slang/lingo is not quite right.) Let me just delve right into this and tell you all about why I am confused.
First of all, I'd like to say that I think I had a pretty good childhood, but for some reason I can't remember from ages 6-13. I don't know why, I am contemplating seeing a therapist soon, but still unsure.
From what my mother tells me, I had a pacifier until I could walk/talk and then I didn't want it anymore. I never sucked my thumb. Apparently, I used a baby bottle well into my older years. Just when I was watching TV, I'd put juice or milk in a bottle and use it, probably until the age of 12 or so.
I met my fiance five years ago (we are lesbians) and we have been together for four years now. We are extremely happy together and have a very wonderful and healthy relationship.
I had zero reason at all to suspect anything remotely related to the Adult Baby lifestyle until last year, other than the fact that around 2 years ago, I started using sippy cups, just because I could and I liked it. Then last year, I realized that I had become extremely interested in an ANR. I'm not sure if this community is familiar with it, but it is an Adult Nursing Relationship, or Adult Breastfeeding (AB for short, which is kind of confusing on this site!). I'm sure you can understand what that means, but after much deliberation on my part, I told my partner about my desires and she, to my surprise, welcomed it with open arms. She was taken aback a bit for a couple days, but after that she was gung-ho about the idea.
Anyway, so now I was drinking out of sippy cups and in an ANR (dry nursing, she does not lactate). Well, after that I started eating baby food. Just the fruit ones, because they were a low calorie snack and they tasted good. But I eat them with baby spoons because I like them.
The past two years I have also become more and more interested in watching kids' shows. I love it. It's all I watch unless my partner is home and even then I can sometimes talk her into watching them.
Fast forward to two nights ago... We went to the store and I went to grab some baby food. The pacifiers caught my eye and without looking much or debating, I just grabbed a two pack and threw them in the cart. Again, to my surprise, my partner didn't even bat an eyelash. I guess she just knows I'm weird and is prepared to deal with whatever comes along by this point... LOL.
Anyway, so last night after she had went to sleep I got one of the pacis and took it to bed with me and watched TV for awhile... And LOVED it.
So now I am a pacifier sucking, ANRing, sippy cup drinking, cartoon watching, baby food eating, crazy person!
I started to ponder if there were others like me, so I started looking it up, but all I could find were adult babies........ Which brings me here. I don't like diapers... At least I don't right now? I know I wouldn't want to wear a diaper or play with baby toys or be babied or taken care of... I just like to suck on a pacifier and watch cartoons, or drink out of a sippy cup instead of a regular glass... What does this make me? Is this how you started or am I just a bit strange and need to stop overthinking things? Why do you think I like all of these things?
Thanks so much to everyone who replies... Oh, and like I have said before, please forgive my ignorance when it comes to this subject. I sincerely hope I don't offend anyone with something I have said... If I do, I didn't mean to!
