ABDLs - A Growing Community of Adults Who Wear Diapers

Man and woman blowing bubbles

Who Are ABDLs? – ABDLs known as Adult Baby Diaper Lovers are a community of adults that consist of two subgroups. One group consists of the adult babies in which adults act like a baby, wear baby attire including diapers and perform other baby activities. Diaper lovers consist of the other half of the group. Diaper lovers are not as interested in role-playing as a baby, but instead, prefer wearing diapers over regular underwear. Diaper lovers may have first started using diapers while managing urinary or bowel incontinence and have grown to admire the look and feel of diapers.

What do ABDLs like? – Often many ABs like super absorbent, loud or “crinkly” adult diapers with tabs. Poly backing is the preferred backsheet for this community. ABDL diapers are bulky, preferably with charming prints or designs. Stars, stuffed animals, and superheroes are common on these diapers. ABs also like onesies, pacifiers, bottles, adult bibs and other accessories they can use to feel like a baby. DLs are open to a variety of diaper styles, especially the tab-style briefs with cloth-like backsheets.

There is no one reason why individuals claim their identity as an ABDL but many of these individuals like the emotional feeling they get from wearing diapers or imitating a baby. For some, the texture of diapers makes them feel safe and secure.

Their community is active online, but is slowly becoming more face to face. Forum sites such as Reddit, Adisc, and Daily Diapers are some of the most popular online sites where ABDLs interact. Their forums consist of diaper reviews, photos, and discussion of where to find recommended accessories.
