Are early memories involving diapers linked to wearing in adulthood?

For me, I dont have any memories about wearing nappies/diapers at all. Or was I a bed wetter or anything like that. So once I was potty trained, I was completely separated from them.

My earliest memories of wanting to wear once again was when I was about 5 or 6 when a younger cousin joined the family. I remember that my mum and I used to visit them quite often and I would see my cousin in his nappy, getting changed etc and I was just totally curious and really wanted to wear one for myself. I remember I used to steal them and wear them at home in private. This kinda continued with neighbours and other family members.

Back to the question of this thread, I dont think having early memories has influenced my wearing to this day. If I am honest, I am at a complete loss why I do. But that said, I have noticed "these days" that kids are being kept in nappies/diapers for longer and older and some of you have suggested this is why you wear them and those still kept in nappies/diapers will have better memories - would this increase the numbers of AB's/DL's in say 15 - 20 years?

I imagine it must play a part, at least for the DL part, AB may be more have other complex triggers, but for DLs at least, surly you must have some memory of how good it feels before desiring it again?

Now that I've been back in diapers more regularly, I feel that more memory is coming back, and I was actually diapered for bedwetting until I was about 5 (I stopped wetting much later, but the diaper stopped), and I think that contributed, but the point when it really 'clicked' was when I stayed over at a relative's home and had a disposable diaper, that was it.

Well from this very thread there is some evidence that early memory in diapers will lead to a life long affinity towards them. So by that I'd have to say yes. Within another 15 years we'll see an uptick of new dls as a result of more kids being able to remember being diapered..

I am one that believes they do. Personally, for me when I was between the ages of 3 to 5, (not exactly sure what age I was) but I had an issue where I would poop while sleeping. Instead of my parents having me where a diaper, I had to just wear plastic pants. I stopped having accidents like that, so it wasn't long lasting or anything.

Around the age of five maybe six, I discovered a pink diaper in a cabinet of the bathroom. I remember attempting to put it on while laying on the floor and my sister walked in. She actually ended up helping me put it on but my parents weren't as amused when I walked out and sat down on the couch. They made me take it off.

Around the age of 10, my friend's mom told me about his bedwetting and shown me his goodnites, which is why he had a problem with sleeping over at places. I had zero problem with it and actually took one without them knowing. I was curious once again.

There was another time around the age of 10, where my brother-in-law forcibly had put a baby diaper on me in front of my sister, brother, and possibly a friend. I was trying to fight it but he was to strong. I was upset and embarrased, my sister told my dad which he was none to happy to hear about it.

Just to play devil's advocate, there may be many many more people who have memories of being diapers but are no longer attached to it, and therefore wouldn't stumble on this forum and post here.

To give you an example, all iphone owners have a smart phone, but not all smart phones are iphones.

My infatuation with diapers began with plastic pants. I remember being caught in the bathroom by an elderly baby sitter wearing plastic pants and being belittled for doing so. I was a bed wetter until I was about 9 or 10 and often asked my mother if we could try plastic pants to avoid wet bedding and her suggesting that without a diaper to absorb the moisture it wouldn't do much good. After going through puberty I found other reasons to like plastic pants. Later in life I found myself needing diapers to deal with incontinence do to a spinal injury and began to use plastic pants for their designed purpose wearing them over cloth diapers. While I have these memories I often try to analyze the original cause of these desires but find that it evades me and that I'm quite content with the protection and comfort that these "fashion accessories" provide.
