A bit of personal info,
I was never to much into AB/Lil since I always assumed I could never get a caretaker. I eventually succumbed and fashioned myself a caretaker, I found a Little to take care of and me and her were very happy together. I was her Daddy and she was Daddy's little girl.
After some unrelated personal stuff, she desperately wanted to mother someone. This stretched to me before I thought of letting out my Little side.
Then we started; she very much enjoys being Momma, and I her Bug (She mis-typed "bud" and it stuck). We enjoy cuddling and bits of age/roleplay throughout our days from time to time. She even surprised me with a paci!
So the lesson to be learnt, never give up hope, or at least find some other joy.
I still get to he Daddy once in a while after all.
