This gives a whole new meaning to “second childhood.” It is way beyond the pale of baby talk. It is in fact baby walk.
A whole generation of Brits, all of them well past weaning, are dressing up (down?) in baby clothes, sucking on pacifiers, and whiling away their time in their cribs — and, no, I’m not trying to sound hip.
They are the stuff of a new Channel 4 documentary set to provide an unforgettable glimpse of the adult baby phenomenon, which according to the Mail Online, has already yielded its first sightings on this side of the pond.
The fly-on-the wall programme shows how fully-grown adults choose to embrace an alter ego that allows them to have their nappies changed, dress in a babygro and be looked after like an infant.

The film seeks to explore the motivations behind this stranger-than-strange fixation, but one has to hope that the producers at least nudged these loons in the direction of a therapist’s couch.

A trailer for the documentary below reveals that for some, the return to babyhood is an escape from the demands and pressures of adult life. “When I put a nappy on it takes me back to that time when I had no stress,” one of them coos.
The number of people involved in this cultish pursuit is staggering, with estimated running as high as half a million. Even though some of the exchanges between “baby” and mommy (or daddy) seem overtly sexual. In one scene in the trailer, a “dad” can be heard saying “We’re just gonna get [his female adult baby] changed real fast.”
Those who play along insist this not just some perverse sexual game. Would for them that it were!
