Unusual Syndromes and Fears

Brett, 24, is an adult baby who admits to wearing diapers, sleeping in a custom-made crib and having his girlfriend, Cat, bathe, change and spoon-feed him. Is this a fetish Brett can grow out of, or is something deeper at play? And, 55-year-old Robin says she’s terrified of riding in cars. What’s at the source of her anxiety?

Baby Brett



Brett says that from the outside, his life looks very normal. He works the night shift at a nationwide retail store and has a degree in business management and a girlfriend of six years. “Most people who would meet me would think I’m a normal guy,” Brett explains. But Brett says those people don’t know the whole story; during his off-hours, Brett dresses and acts like an 18-month-old baby. He says his condition, sometimes referred to as a lifestyle, is commonly called “adult baby,” “infantilism,” or “adult baby syndrome.” Brett says he wears diapers and baby clothes and even sleeps in a custom-built crib. “I love to be treated like a baby,” Brett gushes.

Brett’s girlfriend, Cat, indulges his lifestyle, taking care of him, changing his diapers and feeding him, and admits she feels like his mother. “He calls me ‘Mommy, Mommy,’ all the time,” she says.

“Cat feeds me, bathes me, changes me, dresses me — basically anything that a baby needs, she does for me,” Brett says.

“Ever since I can remember, I’ve liked baby things,” Brett says. “When I see babies, I’m jealous; I wish that was me.”

From 13 to 16 years old, Brett says he faked bed wetting by pouring warm liquid onto himself. It was then, he says, he learned to lose control of his bodily functions.

Brett says everyone responds differently, but most find his behavior to be abnormal. He reveals the worst reaction was when he was called a pedophile.
