Introducing Toddy’s Treehouse

Welcome to the very last public episode of ABDLcast.

It’s been over one year since the previous episode was released, and it was a heavy topic: Mental Health and ABDL.

We received many comments, tweets, and other interactions on that one. I want to thank each of you who have reached out to share your own experiences with mental illness, and to offer support, friendship, and general kindness. There are some really wonderful, caring people that listen to this show. Unfortunately there are also a lot of people that are the exact opposite of kind. And those people… well, I just do my best to avoid and ignore them.

But, enough of that for now, I wanna talk about diapers and stuff! After all, that’s what this show has been all about.

A New Diaper For Toddy?

The biggest personal change since the last time I’ve talked with you is that I have been wearing diapers nearly 24/7 since right about that time. For about the last year I have been spending all but seven or eight hours per week wearing diapers. Of course, I don’t wear in the shower, or if I leave the house to go some place where it is not a good idea to wear a thick, crinkly diaper. Now that I think about it, 7-8 hours per week is probably being too generous!

When I do get out of the house I’m almost always wearing a diaper. And I don’t wear thin, discreet diapers; I wear NorthShore Supremes. And they are thick, though not overly crinkly, because they don’t have a tape landing panel. Before that I was already wearing diapers to bed every single night for at least a year.

You who have listened to past episodes will know that I rarely use my diaper. I wear for comfort, for emotional security, and for anxiety relief. It’s really a form of self-nurturing and self-medication. They always have been.

But after all the hundreds and, probably more accurate, thousands of NorthShore Supremes that I’ve worn I may be ready to make a change. I’ve been experimenting with some samples and I think I’m getting ready to order a case of a another brand of diaper.

Since starting ABDLcast I have intentionally avoided the designer ABDL diapers. I did not want to show favoritism for a specific company. Don’t get me wrong, I know I’m not quiet about my love for NorthShore Supremes. But they are not a designer, niche ABDL diaper company. It’s a medical diaper through and through. And they are still my favorite diaper of all time. But can that change? Of course it can.

I am getting ready to order a case from a well known ABDL diaper company. I have been trying various samples and I think I may have found a diaper that might work better for my needs. But in order to really find out I am going to have to wear a bunch of them. So, I will not mention the brand just yet. You’ll have to stay tuned for that.

I Got A New Pacifier

Another new thing in my life is my pacifier. A while ago I got an adult sized pacifier and I love it! I sleep with it every night. I couldn’t imagine not having it. In fact, I get quite anxious imagining not having it available when I need it.

Keep in mind that I am not AB or DL. I’m that little slash between them (AB/DL). It’s not a sexual fetish for me, and I don’t regress to a baby. Wearing diapers and sucking on a pacifier is just my normal. I see myself as the perpetual kid that wears diapers. The same goes with using a pacifier.

Toddy’s Treehouse

This is indeed the last episode of the ABDLcast. I will soon remove all past episodes from iTunes, Google Play Music, or wherever podcasts are found. I will remove them from our website and anywhere else I can. Until then you can download all the episodes for yourself. There will be no more ABDLcast.

Instead, I’ve built a treehouse! A secret fort! A private club for a limited number of friends who want to be a member. It will be a safe place for us to gather for diapered fun! One of our tag lines has always been, “Audio entertainment for ABDL’s,” and that is what we will continue to be, and even more so.

The treehouse is at patreon.com/toddystreehouse.

If you don’t join, I’ll understand, and I’ll miss you. I just hope that you can understand why we’re putting this show behind a diaper wall. I wanted to create a private listener club and this is the best way I could find to do it. And it will make it possible for us to create a better show than ever! And that is worth a diaper per month right there.

Coming Up At Toddy’s Treehouse

On the next show I’m going to start a series on the essay, What Is True Infantilism? by Kathi Stringer. This is an older article that I just love. It really speaks to me like no other that I’ve read. Kathi Stringer was able to articulate so many things about me that I have never been able to put into words myself. This is the essay that I had my wife read. When she finished it she said, “This really sounds like you.”

I don’t know how many episodes we’ll do on it. And i don’t know if you’ll feel as strongly as I do about this essay. But it should generate some good conversation between you and I. And that’s what makes doing this so fun!

So, until next time, Rest In Peace, ABDLcast. Long live Toddy’s Treehouse! I’ll talk to you there.

What Was Your First Adult Diaper?

It’s a special event in the life of any ABDL and one which many remember vividly. What was the very first adult diaper that you wore? On this episode of our podcast Toddy tells stories about his first experiences with adult diapers and recalls the vintage Attends of the 1980’s.

My First Adult Diaper

This image shows a grown man in an adult size diaper on New Years Eve in 1955.

What was your first adult diaper, and did it fit better than this man’s?

My first time realizing that there were such as thing as adult diapers was while looking through an old Sears catalog when I was about 11 or 12 years old. I cannot express the excitement I felt upon learning that there were real diapers that would fit me! I wouldn’t have to modify baby diapers any more. If I could get some of these delightful looking diapers, that is.

Attends Adult Diapers

I never did get to try those diapers from the catalog – which, if memory serves, were single tape per side! But a few years later – just as I was preparing myself for a driver’s license – I discovered Attends briefs and belted undergarments. Yes! more adult diapers. And they were available at the local Thrifty’s drug store.

No longer would I have to tape, staple, and sew two baby diapers together in order to wear a make-shift diaper. Now I could wear diapers that fit me like a diaper is supposed to fit. But what was my reaction to these adult diapers? Listen to the show and hear the full story.

What was your first Adult Diaper, and what do you remember most about them? Let us know in the comments below.

ABDL Entertainment

Also on this episode of the ABDLcast we discuss the result of a couple listener polls, finish our trip through Storyland, read a bunch of great listener feedback, share some news from the world of ABDL designer diapers, and a whole lot more.

How Involved In Your ABDL Activities Do You Want Your Partner To Be?

Many ABDL’s post on Internet forums seeking advice for how to get their spouse or partner to participate more in their ABDL activities. On this episode we explore the questions of how involved do you truly want your significant other to be, and have those desires changed over time? Plus Story Time, Toddy’s Diaper Time, and a whole lot more fun.

ABDL Achievement Unlocked!

If you spend any time browsing the various Adult Baby and Diaper Lover forums and message boards you will quickly notice a common theme in the thread titles. Many read something like these:

  • How can I get my girlfriend to diaper me?
  • How can I tell my boyfriend that I want to be treated like a baby?
  • Advice needed for getting my wife to be my full-time mommy

We have touched on this topic a couple times on the show in the episodes titled Talking About Diapers And ABDL and Telling My Wife That I Am An Adult Baby or Diaper Lover. Now we explore the question of how involved in your ABDL activities and proclivities (yes, there is a difference) do you really want your partner to be, and has it changed over time? We first asked this specific question during our previous episode and immediately received an email from our friend @Dypermann who was listening live on our ABDLcast Mixlr stream. He wrote:

I would like [my wife] to change me or be the one in charge and tell me its diaper time.  Just like, I’m sure, a lot of other folks want.

Toddy shares his thoughts on this topic in this episode, and we invite you to share your own in the comments below.

I Got Caught With Diapers

Last time we included a poll in the blog post asking if you have ever been caught with or wearing diapers. 62% of you said yes. Well it’s not good enough to just vote! We want to hear or read your stories.

QUESTION: What happened when you were caught with or wearing diapers?

Let us know in the comments or call our voice line using the link below.

ABDL Polls Are Open

This episode’s ABDLcast poll has been asked before on Twitter but we just couldn’t believe the results, so we’re asking again. There should be a poll embedded directly under this paragraph. I could see the poll in the last post on my iPad but not on my desktop using Firefox. Let me know if you have a problem seeing this poll (you’ll know you’re having a problem if you don’t see a poll). Please, only vote if you are a regular listener to the ABDLcast.

And until next time – Crinkle, crinkle little star :)

An ABDL’s First Time Buying Diapers

Do you remember the first time that you went to a store and purchased your very own diapers? That experience is something many ABDL’s recall as one of the most exciting moments in life. We talk about that and much more on this episode of ABDLcast, a podcast for adults who just like diapers.

PeterPanNeverGrowUp

First Time Buying Your Very Own Diapers

Our Twitter friend @LovesPampers suggested a great topic and we were all over it like glue on a diaper tape! Last episode we asked the questions he posed:

  • What age were you when you the first time you purchased diapers?
  • What did you do when you got home with that pack?

Keeping in mind that this is a PG (at most) show we were delighted with the comments that many listeners send in. For example:

I took [the pack of diapers] home and immediately tore into the box. Tore is probably not the right word. I carefully, gently opened the box, so as NOT to tear it. They the were. 12 Ultra Pampers diapers. All lined up perfectly. Their rounded tops, so smooth, so so inviting. – Diapered Writer

After I paid for both and she bagged my items and I walked straight home. My parents were away at the time so I tore straight into the diapers and took one to the bathroom. I locked the door and turned on the shower. As to why I did all this, I still don’t know but I guess I just wanted to be extra safe so that no one could hear a thing even though I was home alone. – tommyp

I paid the money and snuck them into my room. I felt a rush of embarrassment like my heart was pounding; my inner child wanting to burst out. – Fuyu the Wolf Rabbit

ABDL’s Share Many Similar Experiences – And That’s Good!

It’s amazing to read and hear stories from other ABDL’s and see the similarities with some of our own experiences. It is a good way to feel less alone, or odd, or whatever negative feelings many of us may have (had) about ourselves while growing up simply because we enjoy wearing diapers.

Toddy shares some stories around this topic, such as the neighborhood baby play; a cleverly disguised box of diapers under his arm; and a girl, a magazine, and a diaper ad. Oh, there is fodder for many more episodes contained in these stories. You’ll have to listen to find out more.

QUESTION: How involved would you like your spouse or partner to be in your ABDL activities or proclivities? Let us know in the comments below.

More Fun And LIVE

For the first time this episode of ABDLcast was broadcast live on our Mixlr channel. We had a lot of fun doing it and were happy to have quite a few friends tune in and chat with Toddy and Sammy during the show. We will be doing more live broadcasts – both for the podcast and just goofing around and having fun with listeners.

If you want to know when we will broadcast the best way is to follow us on Twitter @ABDLcast.

Enjoy the episode and remember, Crinkle, crinkle little star!

Creative Ways ABDL’s Get Diapers Part 1

Many Adult Babies and Diaper Lovers have stories of creative and unusual ways of getting diapers. We start a new series on this topic with a story involving a birthday sleepover and a scavenger hunt which resulted in the teeniest diaper Toddy ever saw. Hey! It’s an ABDL life.

Strange, Unusual, and Creative Ways To Get Diapers

I was maybe 10 years old at the time. All of us neighborhood kids were celebrating my best friend’s birthday and having a wonderful time at his party. Then his mom announced the next activity on the agenda: A scavenger hunt! We were divided up into teams and sent out in the neighborhood with a list of weird items we had to collect in order to win.

The list that my group had included my very favorite thing: A diaper. And I got it! But what happened when the nice lady brought it to me at the door is not what I had expected. Make sure you don’t miss this story in the first installment of this new ABDLcast series.

QUESTION: What strange, unusual, or creative ways have you ended up with diapers? Let us know in the comments.

Story Time And Diaper Time Make For A Good Time

We are still making our way through Story Land with Bugs Bunny. This episode finds us meeting a very crazy duck masquerading as a great detective who had something stolen from right under his nose, er, beak.

And Toddy gives some quick thoughts on the NorthShore Supreme Lite diaper. How does it compare to his beloved original NorthShore Supreme? Listen to this episode to find out.

The ABDLcast Polls Are Open

Starting this episode we – when the occasion arises – are going to include audience polls in the show blog posts. Some will be a simple multiple choice vote. Others, such as this one will require your individual answers. This question comes from @LovesPampers on Twitter:

Regarding your first time buying diapers, please answer the following

  • What age were you?
  • What did you do when you got home with that first pack?

Remember: keep your answer clean. These questions could potentially spark some wonderful conversation among ABDL folk. Please give us your answers in the comments.

ABDL Artist Wanted

We are looking for listeners to start submitting artwork for use in individual episodes of the ABDLcast. These will be included in the show note blog posts for each podcast we release. Use crayons and paper; markers and construction paper; digital drawing programs. Anything will do. Just make it clean, cute, fun, and kid-like. We’ll give you credit, of course. More information can be heard on this episode of the ABDLcast.

Survey Says ABDL’s Prefer Premium Printed Diapers

We did a poll to see whether ABDL’s preferred printed diapers or plain diapers. The results surprised us. We talk about that and much more on this episode of the ABDLcast.

This image shows a pack of NorthShore Supreme Brief diapers and the ABDLcast logo and episode number 9.

Polling ABDL’s About Printed Diapers

We conducted an admittedly unscientific poll on the Daily Diapers forum asking three questions:

  1. How old are you?
  2. Do you prefer diapers plain or with prints?
  3. Were printed diapers available when you were young?

Toddy thought that the answers would be evenly divided right down the middle – depending on the age of the voter. The thinking being that the older voters who had no printed disposable diapers in the 70’s and early 80’s would prefer plain, all while diapers. But those that had printed diapers while growing up would prefer diapers with prints.

Sammy said that the wild card would be those older ABDL’s who decided that they prefer printed diapers even though they didn’t wear them as babies or toddlers.

The responses were not what Toddy expected:

I only had plain white disposables when I was a real baby. However, I would very much like to see prints on a diaper that actually works for my body shape – Baby Brian, 38

White nappies when young. However I would love printed – babybub, age unknown

When I was young it was white cloth diapers and clear plastic pants as far as I know. Today, since I started wearing diapers several years ago, I like printed disposable diapers better – jess78, 52

Adult Baby To Diaper Lover Or Vise Versa

Because of the unexpected results we were reminded of a topic request made by long-time listener, Rachel Emily:

I’d be interested in knowing how many people in the ABDL community changed their identities over time. For instance, I started out as strictly a diaper lover with a toe in the “Adult Kid” category to identifying more and more as [an Adult Baby] as time goes on. I just recently got myself a baby bottle, so I think I’m venturing rather deeply into AB territory.

Another friend of the podcast, tommyp, seconded the idea. We heard them and want to address the topic next episode, but we need your help!

QUESTION: Have you changed your ABDL identity over time?

Did you start out as strictly a Diaper Lover (DL) that over time added age-play, regression, “baby” items such as pacifiers, plushies, etc.? Or did you begin as and Adult Baby (AB) and have found that you have lost interest in the “babyish” things?

Let us know your story in the comments below. We would love to share it with the ABDLcast audience.

ABDL Audio Fun

What would an episode of the ABDLcast be without Story Time, Toddy’s Diaper Time, Music, Chat? Plus we have some news about ABUniverse and more – including the end to the search for the perfect diaper. Hint: Northshore Supreme Brief, anyone?

Are Plushies An Adult Baby’s Favorite Thing Other Than Diapers?

We surveyed ABDL’s about the importance of their plashies and were amazed by the response. Adult Baby’s seem to overwhelmingly love their soft and cuddly stuffed friends. Listen to this episode of the ABDLcast to hear just how much.

My Favorite Things

This image shows vintage plushies and stuffed animals for ABDL's and Adult Babies.As we prepared for this show that old Sound Of Music tune kept going through my head, but I changed it to “Diapers, and plushies, and a nice, soft blankie…” I know it doesn’t rhyme too well, but I can make it work just fine :)

This topic has been brewing for quiet a while, and we’ve had many requests to talk about it on the show. We went to the ABDL subreddit on reddit.com as well as the Daily Diapers forum and posed a series of questions to get your thoughts. They were as follows:

  • Do you have any plushies?
  • Tell us about your favorite one
  • Why are they important to you?
  • What do you do with your plushie?
  • Is there something other than plushies that you just have to have?

Diapers And Plushies Are Fun

The answers were awesome! You simply must click the links above and read all of them to get an even fuller understanding of how Adult Baby’s (I’m assuming most of the responses were from those identifying more heavily on the AB side of the ABDL spectrum) feel about their plushies. But some of the highlights include:

My favorite is Dr. Quackers. My wife got him for me for the car ride home from the emergency room after I broke my ankle last winter. He’s since become a permanent member of the bed-sitters. – Mattykinss via reddit

I think that my plushies make me feel really small and secure when I crawl into my bed. I LOVE soft things… – Dapperkun via reddit

[W]hen you hold a plushie, you’re holding a piece of yourself. The piece of yourself that needs to be held. – WakkoWannaBe via DailyDiapers

I love plushies because they’re soft and cuddly and that’s how I indulge my AB side a bit.  – Cute_Kitten via DailyDiapers

QUESTIONS: What items do you need to help you feel little? Are they the things that you had when you were little, or did you develop an affinity later in life?

What Diaper Is That

We also give an update on what diapers Toddy has been wearing – including a diaper that has had tape issues 3 times in a row (!!), and the diaper to beat: the Dry 24/7. Plus a ton of listener feedback, updates, fun, and of course Story Time! All that and much more on this episode of the ABDLcast – a podcast for adults who just like diapers :)
