It’s the weekend and the adult baby or little boy in your life has been looking forward to some dedicated time with ‘daddy’. With the warmer weather, you know it’s time to get outdoors – a trip to the zoo or a walk to the park to play on the swings.
You’ll find that you don’t need to make things too complicated. Some of the best times I can remember were the simplest – and one of the simplest ways to show your little guy how much you care is to take him on a picnic.
Diapers in Public for the Adult Baby
There’s something special about being outdoors with its sense of freedom, adventure and exploration. But for the adult baby boy it can be liberating in more than one way: because wearing diapers in public can help him to feel free to express the little boy inside!
At first he might be nervous about being in diapers in public and will keep tugging down on his shirt to make sure they’re not showing. But after a while, you’ll see that he becomes more comfortable. He’ll realize that other people in the park aren’t really noticing….and will also realize that it’s OK regardless to just be himself, and to be proud to be his daddy’s little boy.
Rules for the Perfect Adult Baby Picnic
For your little guy to feel comfortable and to know he’s in his daddy’s care, it’s important to prepare. A few of my top tips would include:
1. Bring plenty of diapers!
Your little guy will get thirsty being outside and running around – and wet diapers will be the result. I often get asked about how I handle diaper changes in public and my number one rule is not to make other people uncomfortable or offend them.
In other words – diaper changes should be discrete. Public restrooms can be OK, or a makeshift “blanket fort” in your picnic area can be a way to retreat from public view for a diaper change.
This is also one of those many situations where a daddy will bless the person who invented snaps – they really do make changes so much easier, and your little guy will blush at the reassuring ‘click’ of the snaps between his legs.
But regardless of the how there’s no denying that a little guy will wet his diaper – and unless you’re prepared to let him waddle around with a soggy bum, you’re going to need to prepare to change him at least once.
2. Food Comes in Little Pieces!
Someone I know says that there are only a few food groups: candy, cookies and restaurant food.
You can probably guess that he’s NOT a daddy. Which points to another rule – the food you bring for the picnic should be kid-friendly.
That means cut up little bits of food, little sandwiches, fruits and veggies in little wedges, and any food that looks like animals. So are candy and cookies and anything that might be slightly messy!
(Bring a bib! Or at the very least, bring plenty of cloths with babyish or cartoon patterns).
3. You’re Not Alone at the Picnic
It’s not just daddy and his little boy of course – don’t forget the rest of the family! By now you’ll be used to the fact that your little guy can’t go anywhere without his plushy – but a picnic can be for an even larger ‘extended family’.
Bring along all your little guys stuffed friends (well, within reason of course). The memories you create of adventures in the park with lions and tigers and teddy bears will be amazing bonding moments between daddy and his little boy.
What Are Your Must-Haves?
But what do you insist that daddy brings to the picnic? Or if you have a little boy, what are some of his favorite things to do when you take him to the park for a picnic?
For me, it’s less about the ‘things’ and more about the memories:
– Of seeing a little boy running across the grass towards the swing set and the slight bulge of his diaper under his shorts
– Of the time in the late afternoon when he felt comfortable enough to lay on the blanket in just a diaper and t-shirt
– Or the quiet moment at home at the end of the day when he snuggled in my arms, tired out from a long day in the sun.
All of these memories make the experience of being a daddy to an adult baby or little boy the most rewarding thing of all.
