This man of 31-year-old, has a rare way to forget the stress because out of your house it’s all an adult but within it, behaves and dresses like a baby. As if this weren’t enough, every night he goes to sleep in his giant crib, dressed in a playsuit with colorful mobiles hanging from the ceiling. In the morning, his mommy wakes him up and feeds him with a bottle or a spoon. He then changes into adult clothes when he goes outside. But he’s back home in evening and into his baby clothes again.
It’s play time and he’s occupied with Legos, stuffed animals and a giant high-chair. Stanley Thornton was 13 years-old when he was abused and started wetting the bed at night, so he started wearing a diapers. He then gradually began to realize that he liked and wanted all the comforts of baby. At age 20, he started day wetting and wearing a diaper full time. The strangest part here is that the woman caring for him is not really his mother. “I love him like he’s my favorite nephew”, she says. “He’s like my family member who lost his mother, and I’m like the aunt stepping in and saying I’m still here for you”.
Some see it as a psychological condition, and others call it a fetish, but Thornton says it’s only his method of letting go of stress.
