A woman who lives as a full-time adult baby has revealed that she spends a whopping $300 a month on diapers and has her own nursery complete with a crib.
Paigey, a 25-year-old from the East Coast, has her own online subscription service that caters to members of the adult baby/diaper lover (ABDL) community, and her 426 paid subscribers help fund the costly expenses that come with her unusual lifestyle.
She begins every day by waking up in her crib, and after her morning diaper change, she spends her time playing with toys and creating online content for her followers.

Say what? Paigey pays $300 a month on diapers, but her 426 paid subscribers are the ones who are footing the bill
‘I’ve always collected toys and had a younger sense of humor, so all of my friends and family have been very accepting,’ she said. ‘If you act like it’s not a big deal, people will take your nonchalance in their stride.’
Paigey said that once she ‘became of legal age’ she started searching online to see if there were others with similar interests and found an entire community of like-minded people.
Her goal has always been to normalize the lifestyle since she adopted it in May 2018. By setting up her own subscription service, she hopes that she can help others feel less shameful while also making enough money to live as an adult baby.
‘One of the most prominent feelings people have is shame, so I decided to go public,’ she explained. ‘I made a YouTube channel. I made a website. It’s all about how to live your best adult baby life.

‘We like to play with toys. We’re brought joy by the things we did as little kids. I collect Polly Pocket and Barbies. I like to play with my stuffed animals. That’s what “little space” is.’
The full-time nature of her lifestyle means that it’s something does both in and out of public view. She isn’t deterred by the negativity she encounters from those who don’t understand her lifestyle.
However, according to Paigey, she has received an overwhelmingly positive response from her large online following.
‘I get emails every day from people saying thank you for being as public as you are,’ she said, though she admitted that she also has her fair share of critics.

‘Some people just don’t understand why an adult would want to act or live like a child. It’s all to do with the mindset of letting little things bring you joy,’ she explained.
‘We’re still functional adults. We have to do normal adult things like pay the bills, but we also have the added responsibility of maintaining our lifestyle.
‘I get a lot of people questioning my intelligence. They ask why a normal, intelligent person would live this way,’ she continued.
‘I don’t respond to negativity. It doesn’t warrant a response. Lines of consent are really important to me. In my daily life, I don’t push my lifestyle on anybody else.’

Paigey noted that even though she is an adult baby, she still knows how to conduct herself when she is outside of her nursery.
‘I may dress like a kid but I’m not going to be drinking a bottle of milk and sucking on a pacifier. I’m discrete when I’m in public.
‘There’s a lot of great media out there to help you find out where you belong in this community.’
Paigey said her lifestyle isn’t something that has affected her dating experiences, though she admitted she’s never had a partner who was ‘involved in ABDL.’
‘I’m engaged to someone who I’ve been with for five years. He doesn’t have this lifestyle, but he supports it,’ she explained.
