Hey all...

Someone asked me this question at the Pamper Party... and I really don't know how to answer it... so I'll ask y'all.

Exactly how much of an AB do you consider yourself?

Now in the past when I heard the term AB used to label someone I always imagined a person who enjoyed full regression, baby talk, drinking from bottles, crawling around on hands and knees, being cared for, changed, etc.

As far as it goes for me... I don't consider myself AB at all. I mean sure I love my teddy bear and drinking from sippy cups and playing games... but I don't see that as regressing. I don't really require anyone to look after me or change me on a regular basis or anything... and baby talk annoys me to no end.

Thus I label myself a DL... but I am a bit suprised that some people consider DLs to have the sexual kink only. Diapers can be sexual for me... I find diapered girls to be very hot... and just the idea of putting on a big thick disposable and crinkleing around can turn me on if I fantasize about it... but it's not like I get even the slightest bit horny every time I diaper up. It's kinda like wearing your favorite pair of shoes or shirt every day. Nice... but life goes on... ya' know?

I guess when you get right down to it, not much. I'm more of a Kid Adult or Toddler Adult, at the youngest. Even when I use items associated with babies, such as a highchair or stroller, I still consider myself more toddler age than actually a baby.

I don't consider my self an AB, I am DL with some AB tendencies, mainly I like to wear diapers, and wet diapers, and I like wearing sleepers.

I'm an LG. My regression age is about 4. I don't exactly enjoy wearing diapers during the day, those stay to night, pullups during the day. Sippy cups, pacifiers, and that's about it. Read my Daddys Little Girl stories, and you'll get an idea.

Now in the past when I heard the term AB used to label someone I always imagined a person who enjoyed full regression, baby talk, drinking from bottles, crawling around on hands and knees, being cared for, changed, etc.

I consider myself an AB, but I don't particularly enjoy a lot of these things. Full regression is not my thing, nor do I care for baby talk or crawling. I rather like my adult-functioning mind and don't want to (or possibly can't) suspend it in the name of regression; in fact, I would consider it kinda humiliating, and humiliation is not my thing either.

*caution, this post is gonna turn long-winded*

But the thing is... I've never thought of a child's mind as 'lesser' than an adults. I realize (from class lectures on child development, personal research, etc.) that a three-year-old's brain simply isn't as highly developed, with regards to motor function, reasoning skills, etc., but... kids aren't at all 'dumb.' I have memories from when I was old enough to sit up but could not yet talk, and what I recall is a clearly functioning mind. I also remember how very simple things seemed. In this particular memory, I was sitting in our foyer and my mom was bringing in a purple crate. I recognized it as the portable toy box that she used, and I remember being very happy--I clapped my hands and probably made some sort of expression of pure joy. But the thing is I was processing thoughts without words; it was all pictures and emotions. Very strange; I don't think I could do that now if I tried. But what I do try to do is emphasize these qualities in my own adult mind--the simplicity, openness, and imagination of a child.

So if anything I do resembles regression, it would be this: an attempt to simplify my mind and put all of those adult worries (over-worked busy-ness and the stress that goes along with it) in their place. Really, it's ridiculous how busy one can get, and how much the stress can mount, that it overshadows and pushes away what (I believe) is most important in life--just being kind to others, remembering family and calling one's grandparents just to say 'hi,' keeping in touch with friends, appreciating very simple things (a sunset, beautiful surroundings), creating, loving, living... Seriously, life isn't infinite (for an atheist like me) and it makes no sense to be too stressed out to actually live it. But I think my idea of 'regression' is more in line with a kind of meditation more than anything else...

Obviously all this 'mind work' can be done without material things--diapers, paci's, sippy cups and all the rest. However, these things have become so deeply ingrained into my... personality, I suppose would be the best word... that, while not necessary for me to de-stress (I can find other outlets), if I can use them I most definitely will. But more importantly, I think there is an added component that is what truly makes me an AB: the sense of comfort and security that these physical objects give me. Sure, I can paint or draw or play guitar to de-stress... but none of these activities can make me feel safe--similar to being drawn into a hug by a friend or family member that I trust--like these items can. It's this component of safety and comfort brought on by using infantile items that really defines 'being an AB' for me.

So, to answer the question 'how much of an AB are you,' I would have to say 100%, not because I spend all of my time diapered in a nursery and fully regressed (I actually spend 0% time doing this), but because I try to allow my mind to take on a simpler outlook that a lot of people would call child-like. Also, the idea of 'being an AB' (deriving comfort from diapers, paci's, etc.) is so deeply ingrained into my concept of self, and on a subconscious level, that I would not venture to try to rid myself of it to become 'normal.' It would seem too drastic (and unnecessary) a move that would wipe out a significant aspect of myself, as much as if someone were to say to me that I could no longer be creative, could no longer be an artist or aspire to be an architect. *Shrug* it's funny how we start to define ourselves by what we love or what we do...

As for the DL aspect--I will have to admit that my understanding of the definition of a DL is one who fetishizes diapers and enjoys 'getting off' while either wearing them or watching someone else wear them, and this definition applies whether they also enjoy some AB activities or not. This is just what I've gleaned in the 10-ish years since I learned that there was a name for what I was, and I've met some exceptions (DF, you appear to be one) to my definition of a DL--but for the large part it seems to hold up fairly well. I'm interested in others definitions, though...

I like to consider myself AB. I haven't gotten to the point where I feel absolutely comfy regressing, 'cause I'm still a bit embarrassed when I do it with someone else, online or in person. But I like using pacifiers and drinking from bottles when I can. I want to get a sippy cup and a rattle, too. I just have such an urge to shake one sometimes. XD Kinda wish I had someone who'd moreso urge me and coax me into being more of a lil baby girl when I get in those moods.

But, rar. Besides regressing and stuff, I usually act childish anyway. I like babbling on like a lil thing when I'm in a good mood and my mother often complains she can't understand me 'cause I can talk too babyish and fast. And...uhh.. Hm. I can't think of what else. But rar. AB but not too AB yet... but often childish anyway.

I have to agree with ballucanb, “I don't consider my self an AB, I am DL with some AB tendencies, mainly I like to wear diapers, and wet diapers, and I like wearing sleepers.” I don’t have any sleepers myself but I’ve bought them for three different girls and the doll I sleep with now wears a pair. I might get some for myself in the fall. I also have a bottle I keep in my car for water on long drives.

I like bottles, sippy cups, plushies, pacifiers, footed sleepers, and of course diapers. I'm not sure how I feel about babyish talk.... haven't really tried it. I like being able to talk though... but I guess it's okay to make things sound cute sometimes. I don't really especially have any interest in crawling... indifferent toward it, I guess. Being cared for would be very nice, but I unfortunately have not experienced it. I like humiliation too, well to an extent anyway. And um, sissy stuff. (I'm more of an adult toddler than adult baby. Being unable to talk and stuff like that would kinda suck)

I don't really have many chances to do AB/DL stuff anyway though.... just wish I did.

I hardly consider myself a *B because I'm just not really into it anymore. I mean yea I do sleep with a teddy bear every night but I've been doing that for like ever. I just like to sleep with something :eek: Some have suggested that I'm just purging or something like that. I really don't know or care ^.^ If the interest does come back then it does, if it doesn't then it doesn't. So..... Yea I don't consider myself *B at all anymore.

As far as my AB side is concerned, I've come to realize that i'm a little more of a DL than i thought i was, but I still consider myself as an AB. I find more joy in wearing diapers and of course using them, while all the baby items that i own (footed sleepers, onsies, diaper covers, bottles, etc.) only add to the experience. The diapers are the biggest factor which is why i consider that i have a bit of a DL side. I used to wear diapers out in public a lot, but these days i can't find an appropriate time to wear these days with a stressing job and laborious school work it would be very uncomfortable to wear. Both of these require a lot of physical effort to complete so diapers would only get in the way with a majority of these tasks. Boy do i miss the old days...

As far as regressing back to an infantile state of mind, i really can't do that because there are so many things on my mind these days that i feel like i can't just forget these things because i know i'll have to get to these things sooner or later. However i do enjoy not worrying about them and thats where my AB side comes in. When i am sitting around in my diaper covered by my onsie with a bottle in my mouth i can relax and not have to focus all my efforts on the tasks at hand, but that still doesnt mean i can't do anything productive. Hell, i sometimes pay bills and surf the web in my diaper and footies.

Overall i would have to say that im 70% AB and 30% DL but i feel that my AB side will eventually take over.

umm im not sure how to approach this one......
i not really sure that im an ab but i do regressing to a child like state of mind
around 4 (u know that age where ur cute not annoying, and that age where its still not awkward to wear diapers... but then again i do still have (a lil bit) of a childish side to me.
not really sure how to label myself, i dont need to be cared for as mush as cared about i would say, and i dont really need to be changed either, so i guess thats kinda the pull-ups age?

I would consider myself mostly AB. I suck my pacifier and play with my stuffed animals. I'm also getting a bottle soon:D. When I regress I talk in baby talk (actually I just whisper). I usually regress into a toddler so I can walk around. When I regress into an infant I'm immobile and I can't talk, only babble. I don't have or want to wear any baby clothes or diapers so I don't go all out.

Kind of a complex question, actually.

There's a fair amount of stuff I enjoy and would like to try, but I always try to keep it in the realms of... well, sanity. I wouldn't gurgle, crawl around on all fours and eat food like a slob and then whine and cry about stuff, because that's just trying way, *way* too hard. In my opinion, It's not regression, it's just looking like a knob.

As for me though, There are some things I absolutely love. Using a pacifier, and cuddling up with Humphrey is awesome. Talking like a little kid, but not babbling like an actual infant. Watching kids shows, wearing a diaper, Pretending things, being cuddled up to someone, and even having a one way discussion with Humphrey can be some really enjoyable things to do. As I said, I tend to keep it in the realms of just having fun, rather than just trying way too hard.

I'm an adult child more than an adult baby. I enjoy playing at the park with my partner and I enjoy having someone to call "mommy" or "mummy" as I was never able to pronounce the other one being australian. I do wear diapers occasionally when mommy decides that I need them and I do tell her still when I need to go to the toilet. I feel as if I'm probably about the age of 7. Still young enough to feel embarrassed to be wearing diapers but still possible as a lot of kids still wet their beds at that age (I didn't but I know of one or two that did) I also drink out of a sippy cup because mommy gives it to me a lot so I don't drop stuff on the floor. Um...what else can I say? Not adult baby..adult child.

After being an infantilist for a while, I can honestly say I feel much more appeal toward the DL side of things, as opposed to the AB.

Keep in mind, my progression through the whole thing saw me starting out a 100% DL. My focus was with the diapers, my pleasure was contained solely with that. In fact, I don't think I even knew the AB side of things until I started doing internet searches. And speaking of, I realised I had a liking toward diapers a few years before I actively sort out information and other people on the internet. To any sense of the term, I was a diaper lover exclusively before anything else.

It wasn't until after finding a few information sites that I realised that being a diaper lover had a lot to do with having infantile tendencies as well - or "being an AB". In fact, I was surprised that such a thing even existed, but after hearing about it, it made perfect sense as to how it could be a component to being a DL. Maybe because I was a little taken aback by it, I didn't have any interest in it whatsoever. But as I explored more sites, the constant exposure to it made me fairly curious as the experience. At around that time I bought a few pacifiers, a bottle and investigated baby items at the shops. It definitely wasn't something I was fond of at first, but it grew on me and I eventually loved it.

For a while, I would have called myself more TB than being a DL. But as quick as it had come, I became less and less interested in it over time. Even now, I haven't used any baby item whatsoever in the past year. The reason escapes me, but I don't think it's coming back. My guess was that it never interested me to begin with and I'm just going back to that state of mind. That's not to say, however, that I won't ever do it again. If the situation permits, I'd be more than willing to pick up and use a bottle and pacifier.

So as you could imagine, I almost exclusively a DL nowadays. It suits me fairly well and I'm very comfortable with it. Probably about the closest I come is my liking toward footed sleepers and other toddlerish clothing apparel (as well as snuggling my teddy bears from time to time ;) ) I don't feel any "urges" to use baby items or be treated like a baby, but as I said, I'd have no objections against doing it. :thumbsup:

like when I'm alone I some times drink out of sippy cups or baby bottles or suck on pacifiers.

I am 100% DL. After reading about pacifiers and footed pajamas here, my curiousity has been sparked, but not enough to purchase any items at this time. As for diapers, I prefer the adult styles. Even my plastic and rubber pants have a distinct "utilitarian" appearance.

Hard question :confused:

Well I haven't tried really tried much of the AB lifestyle, though I do certainly try there is only so much you can do in a house that isn't your own or without a partner. I'd love too try full dependence or a weekend as a child. Theres actually not much I wouldn't consider with the right person.

When It's just me, as in lately. I tend to be more like Mandi and Care_a_lot and the other "Adult children". Around about 4 I suppose because I think thats the age where you can be at your cutest :) I tend to zone out too whats around me when I'm "Jade" and simple things like teddies or jigsaws keep me entertained for hours. I can walk and talk while I'm Jade but I tend to miss some small words from sentences, I also crawl quite a bit too reach things I want if sitting on the floor when I notice it.

I like things you can suck on like pacifiers, bottles, thumbs, small toys. But thats because I'm a thumb-sucker, always have been. Its very relaxing for me so of course it comes into the whole AB thing. Nappies can be a sexual thing to at times, girls wearing them are always lovely! Wetting tends too make me feel a little naughty too. Its pretty situational like others have said if I fantasies it can be sexual. Nappies alone do nothing for me, and tend to annoy me for an unknown reason :dunno:

So I guess I'm a "hot n cold" AB, I can be massive babyish one day and only slightly the next. Hot n cold... story of my life really :laugh:

I'm mixed or both AB and DL. All my diaper fantasies are about being in some situation where I am regressed, or at least incontinent and needing to be changed by a kind woman (or two!). I have wanted to fully regress since I was 3 and I have been sexually aroused by diapers and regression since I started puberty at around 12. Now i am 42 and wear diapers most of the time although I don't usually use them for their intended purpose as this would be inconvenient. Other times I really can't help but wet and mess myself whether diapered or not. 70% AB 30% DL, but AB is winning.
