A Weekend with Daddy for the ‘Huggy’ Adult Baby

If you had a weekend with daddy what would it be like? If you had to capture the experience you were looking for how would you describe it?

I was thinking about this when I ran across a Web site for a nursery – a place where little guys or girls can go to be taken care of for an hour, a day or a weekend. Now, I know nothing about the place other than what I read on the Web site so this isn’t an endorsement or anything.

Their concept includes providing different ‘programs’ depending on someone’s needs and interests. For example, their “cutey” program is described like this:

This program is based on the Toddler stage. Activities are more versatile, as kids start becoming independent.

The equipment is adapted to adult-sized toddlers. Potty-training is a strong priority of this program. Food gets varied, as kids start discovering new sensations through touch, hearing, smell, sight and taste.

Tenderness and care are required to facilitate this growing period

Each of the programs includes a brief list of clothing, games and food and has an attached schedule depending on whether you were staying for an hour, a day or a weekend.

I found the list of programs somewhat inspiring. Different boys are often in different states of mind: some little guys have more ‘toddler-type’ feelings, or maybe they need more babying over a weekend.

So I thought maybe I’d think about my own feelings or approaches about the different programs they outline, starting with the first: the “Huggy Program” which is described like this:

This program is based on the “baby” stage. Softness, tenderness and care are at the very heart of this program .

The environment is fully adapted to adult-sized babies. Food, clothing and activities are designed for this specific age. This program will bring back your most marvellous memories

The Start of Daddy’s Version of a “Huggy Weekend”
Entering daddy’s care you’re returning to a space of tenderness, care and the trusting love that comes from being in that wonderful needing and helpless place of your babyhood.

For some little boys, this is a natural state to return to. For others, being present in their inner babyhood takes some time, but daddy is there to gently bring you back to your warm, vulnerable and cared for self.

When you arrive, daddy immediately takes you to the nursery where you sit in a large over-stuffed double chair. He chooses a plushy for you from the shelf, watching your eyes to see if you respond to a particular one – the soft teddy bear maybe, the puppy, or the bunny rabbit.

He hands you your new favorite friend and then sits beside you and talks softly. He tells you that what he sees is a beautiful baby boy. He tells you that baby boys need lots of care and attention. He reminds you that baby boys need diapers, feeding, and plenty of rest and quiet play time.

He tells you that daddy will be there to take care of everything and that you should remember that daddy is only there for your care and that it is safe to let your worries and thoughts and concerns float away – daddy is there to look after you and his priority is to provide trust and care like a warm blanky.

He makes sure that you don’t have questions or concerns, and notices that you are shyly but surely entering a quieter place.

The Change
Daddy sits you on the change table. His voice is a soothing murmur. He uses short sentences.

He removes your adult shirt and then gently lies you down on the change table. You notice a soothing tinkle sound of music from the nursery music box. You feel a little awkward as daddy removes your jeans and underwear, but he gently shushes, calmly soothes, and as you hug your plushy you feel a pacifier brought to your mouth and you shyly take it.

You smell the fresh scent of baby powder and feel its cooling sprinkle on your skin. He doesn’t just powder your diaper area but your arms and chest and legs a little as well. You feel wrapped in babyish smells.

You notice the shelf near the change table with stacks of diapers and see daddy choose one that looks thick and has babyish prints. He seems to grab a stuffer as well, and when he lifts you and then lowers you the diaper crinkles beneath you and the thick padded feeling of the diaper is like a pillow.

Daddy rubs your tummy in little circles. You feel the tight anxiety inside start to melt a little, and you feel your muscles relax even more as the diaper wraps itself around you. The sound of the tapes being opened and then the feeling of them being snugly secured makes your legs curl in slightly and then out.

You feel a little as if your body is responding on its own, floating a little, involuntary curls and stretches.

You feel safer suddenly, more snug, there’s something transporting about the feeling of your diaper. And you think “my diaper, daddy has put me in my diaper” and you feel a butterfly in your tummy.

Clothes for Baby
Over the weekend, daddy will keep you dressed in snuggly, soft clothing. Onesies in slightly thicker, softer materials than an ‘average’ onesie. Cottony rompers.

You often find yourself wearing a play sleeper in the day – the feeling that even your feet are wrapped in soft fabrics and that everything feels ‘tucked in’ and snuggly reassures you. Daddy will often have you wear a cute little soft hat in a soft pastel color.

Daddy also has you wear clothes with attached mittens. They keep you warm but comfortable. With the mittens on, you find that you tend to grasp for larger, softer objects – stuffed toys or large plastic rings.

Your paci is attached to your clothing by a ribbon. Sometimes when you lose your paci you have trouble grasping it to put it back in your mouth, but daddy is usually nearby to place it back in your mouth for you.

Activity Time
Upon being diapered and dressed, daddy sits with you on the soft nursery floor rug.

The feeling of sitting with him gives you a little shy feeling. He plays with some of the baby toys on the floor – rings, animals and blocks. He uses words or short sentences.

But you find it hard to completely focus. You feel swaddled. The soft feeling of the clothes is so different from the street clothes you arrived in.

Your diaper seems to make very loud crinkling noises each time you move. You suck on your paci and find yourself focusing on it, then on the crinkly feeling of the diaper, and then on daddy.

You feel an emotional feeling inside but you’re not sure how to name it. Everything feels contained, as if you were inside the muffled feeling of a fleece blanket.

Daddy will sense these feelings in you – a sort of unnamed emotion, not quite able to bring ‘sharpness’ to your thoughts. He will give you a warm rub on your back, or very gently tussle your hair, or give your thick diapered bum a little pat.

Activity times will be fairly quiet. Explorations, simple, touching things, giggling a little at how daddy gives the animals their own voices.

Playpen time on your own brings out other feelings – you play in your playpen but you’re more aware of a feeling of being in your very own little space. There are the toys and the sounds and the spinning play things and the ones that make noises – but your senses are heightened and muffled all at once.

There is the swaddling feeling of the diapers and clothes, but also the crinkles of the playpen mat, and the sense that your playpen gives you a safe space.

After playing with you a bit, daddy brings you to the big chair and cradles you a little. He doesn’t say much, because he feels your body and senses waves of feelings. Maybe your ‘adult’ mind wants to say something and then it quiets down because you’re being cuddled and cradled and you feel snug in your diapers.

When he brings a baby bottle to your lips you have a flush feeling, but as you take the nipple to your lips you feel another transporting feeling. Everything becomes focused on the feeling of being cradled and fed, the warm milk, and you release yourself to your feelings as if something inside you is finding peace and safety.

Later, high chair time also makes you blush but then sort of float, as the feeling of a bib around your neck and daddy’s careful feeding makes you giggle, but also makes you feel helpless yet cared for.

The Crib
Being diapered, clothed, fed, and quiet play time on the nursery rug or in your playpen – you feel yourself floating through the incredible space where you are completely cared for.

If you had asked the adult who arrived whether he would need naps, you probably would have said no or that you’d ‘fake it’. But the adult was left behind and now you find that there are lots of emotions inside you, the calm comfort of being cared for, the swaddling space in which daddy has put you.

So when daddy puts you down for naps, there’s something reassuring and safe. The crib sends a well of emotion through you.

You almost feel like crying but it’s also a happy feeling and also a babyish feeling and when daddy raises the bars of the crib you feel an affirmation, a bubble of joy, a cuddly feeling of safety, and you know that daddy is looking after you or will be watching on the baby monitor and the warm swaddle of your babyhood sends you to sleep whether for a nap or at night.

A Baby in the World
When you leave daddy’s care at the end of the weekend, he spends lots of time with you before you leave. You sit on the couch and have a long quiet chat. You feel tender and vulnerable and a little sad. You express your feelings and discoveries and express your fears and needs.

Daddy tells you how proud he is of you. And he tells you that even when you’re out in the world, you will always be a special little boy with a soft and gentle heart.

And even though you feel sad, your mind starts to turn a little as you try to think of the answer to daddy’s last question: “is there anything special you’d like to do next weekend?”

  4. this makes me so sad, i really want to go to nusery wiv daddy. But i have no way of getting there. Im epileptic so i cant drive, i have severe dyscalculia, and Aspergers Syndrome so i have no understanding of finance, so my mum (real mum) handles all my finances. And she is not going to give me any money to go to a AB nusery. I told her i was an AB she dosent understand. She tolirates it, she dosent accept it, and wont eaven change me. I have no AB cloths, no toys, just my plushie and blankie, baba, paci and dipees. I wish i had a daddy or mummy to look after me, emotionaly / Psycologicaly im only 12 months old. Its difficult looking after myself.

    1. I am a girl and when i was 15,my parents finially had me baptized on Easter sunday at Easter mass with all of the other kids and teens.My parents,along with my gramma and great aunt dressed me as a ‘baby’! They put a 10 ply thick cloth diaper on me with white,adult size plastic pants over it,then a white tee shirt,then a poofy,white,short sleeve,midthigh length baptism dress and matching bonnet with lace anklets and white mary jane shoes.The plastic pants fit me blousy over my diaper and crinkled when i walked! My great aunt hung a pink pacifier on a ribbon around my neck that i had to suck on.When i bent over to recieve the water on my head,my dress went up in back and everyone saw my diaper and plastic pants! Most of the other preteen and teen girls were dressed as babies like i was,so i dint feel so bad in the outfit.

  6. Aww! My maternal instinct is overflowing after reading this. I want to cuddle with my “little man” in a rocking chair now.

  7. I really want to go to the nursery you know getted on diapers, suck a paci, drink from a baby bottle, beeing fed, take naps, but highly above of all what i mentioned being dressed as a little baby boy ohhhhh i really really want to go

  8. Never saw this post when it came out. IT sounds wonderful. Have to check this site out. I had a site that was the montreal site for French speaking babies – I speak some but as a baby does it matter. Their nursery sounded really cool! I have alot of the toys and some clothes (mostly onesies) but no care giver right now. I also live with a relative that I help care for too. But I am 24/7 and he is actually pull ups 24/7 and we have 3 diaper pails. Love to get away to do something like this. 🙂

  9. I love the idea of soft, extra thick onesies or sleepers to cover crinkly diapers/nappies as u hug into ur big strong daddy or ur cuddly bear as u go to sleep in uor cot/crib.

  10. How do I sign up for this where are you and how much I want this sooooooooooooooooooo bad really really do I want all of this. I have always wanted this from being 11 years old when I first desovered diapers now I still want it I always walk around with my nappy on when I can and my best teddy bear which I bought from mother care I like to call it chomper after the dinosaur from land before time which I watch all the time and I watch poke’mon all the time as well. Night time is the best time of the day for me because my full ab comes out because no one else can annoy me because I still leave with my parents they do know what I do but my sisters don’t know what I do I keep it to my self it took me 13 years to tell my dad I got a beer drunk it one day and admitted it to him it was so good to admit it to him I had dreams about it for years and years but it just came out one day because I used to get at least 1 day a week alone to top my nappies up and hide them under my bed in my bag then it turned to no days at all and I wasn’t stopping so I told him it felt strange but a sigh of relief as well. It’s still the same no time alone at all my sister had a baby and she makes my dad look after him 3 days a week and when my dad or my mum or my other sister nursers the 10 month old baby I always Look and think I really really want that as well. Also I would love someone to read me a bed time story I have always felt like this but even worse since my sisters baby was born. Also I play with toy cars and love to watch toy story. Thanks for listening to my life story from
    Baby john age 2 years ab
    John age 28 years adult years

  11. I am a true baby and that sounds like a outstanding weekend with daddy. The most loving daddy I have ever ran across. I would really love more than just a weekend, but, would be happy with just one or two I could remember.
