Adult baby harness

Front view of my adult baby harness

In the world of adult babies, some people are into different levels of sub/loss of control-related play; we like to be taken care of to different degrees. I’m quite taken with the idea of daddy looking after to me to the extent that when we are out he stops me from running off and getting into trouble or lost. This is a real issue with someone as childish as me! Consequently, I was pleased as chips to get an adult baby harness and leash from myspecialharness.com.

I’d been looking around for a while for an adult-sized toddler harness and, whilst there are some nice ones out on the web, most you see are very expensive. Moreover, being made from leather with various appliques and the like on them, they go a bit beyond childish and move into pastiche – they are more extreme than real children would actually be seen using.

A friend suggested I look at the offerings from myspecialharness.com, and I was sold pretty much immediately. The adult-sized toddler harnesses were precisely ‘toddler’, quite literally a scaled up version of smaller toddlers’ harnesses. They are simple webbing affairs (without big panels for appliques)that you can clip around you, adjust the size of the straps then hand over the leash to your carer so you’re under control on your walk.

The harnesses are complete as they are, coming with a groin strap, a leash and a couple of straps for attaching the harness (and the little inside it) to things like chairs, pushchairs, beds, etc. You can choose from a range of colours (I chose multi-coloured because I’m a bright, jolly little) and there are also plenty of extras you can choose, like metal D-rings, wrist and ankle restraints and locking clips.

So what do they look like? I’ll show you my wonderful friend ABJane modelling hers and me in mine (click to see the full pictures):

After looking at the harness designs and optional extras I looked at the price. Rarely have I encountered an adult baby supplier who charges such a fair price for professional item that is quite childish enough. The unadorned adult-sized toddler harness and leash I got cost £25 including postage and making it a larger size than standard (as I am a 6’3″ tall, generally large three year old). That is a great price for an item so well made, that will clearly last, and I’ll get so much pleasure from. It’s so good not to be over-charged for inferior rubbish, as so many adult suppliers do – well done myspecialharness.com for treating your customers well!

All the communications I received from the owner of myspecialharness.com were friendly and professional; I was kept completely informed of the progress of my order. I ordered my adult baby harness late on a Friday (if memory serves), soon after I received an email saying my adult baby harness would be with me by the end of the following week – that seemed ok to me. Consequently I was chuffed as ninepence to get an email on the next Monday morning saying my harness was made and had been posted off; I received it on Tuesday morning. Champion chipmunk communication and super squirrel service!

I cannot recommend myspecialharness.com highly enough. If you want a high-quality adult baby item that delivers a real toddler feel to it and you don’t like being ripped off then this is the place to go. Even if you’ve never really thought about getting an adult baby harness I’d consider buying here as it’s difficult to get items with more childish attraction than a toddler harness and leash (well, perhaps nappies:) Put one of these on before you go for a walk and let your carer take control and you’ll feel so cared for and so much like the little person you are.

That’s the slight problem, alas. Daddy is unwilling to have me dragging him around central Winchester with me in mine; he doesn’t mind me wearing toddler clothes but apparently an adult baby harness is too embarrassing… Misery guts! Luckily, we regularly go for walks in the lovely countryside surrounding Winchester and he’s used it to keep me out of trouble on them. Hooray! I hope your carers are not unwilling to let you use your myspecialharness.com adult baby harness when you go out; it’s great to feel so little and cared for!

    I prefer the leather ones, they were what we had in my first infancy. Nylon webbing hadn’t been invented. But I do understand your daddies reluctance to be seen holding onto yours when shopping in Winchester.
    I think it is very sensible to not involve others in our fantasies. Thinking of their possible reaction.
    I however did see a teenager, who looked to be “special needs” in a reins although they were dark blue over a dark blue coat. And not to noticeable to a passerby in a rush.

  • Hi April, I do agree there are limits to what one can do in public. However, if you are just being yourself and not interfering with anyone ostentatiously then those limits don’t have to be all that limiting. I think the only problem with going somewhere busy with the harness on is that I’m liable to get rather excited, start dragging daddy around and shout and complain when he doesn’t let me go anywhere I want. He would find that a bit much.
    If I didn’t get too powered up I think it’d work wonders for my fear of going out. It’s certainly been great on our country walks.

    What about a ball and chain? that would slow you down 🙂

    I bought some of these reigns ages ago but mine are in boring blue. They certainly were well made and have lasted well.

  • A ball and chain wouldn’t be a very caring way of slowing me down so I think I’ll skip that option 😉

    The only thing I would really change about these is to make the straps wider. When you are a 6’3″tall little boy it’s nice if you can find things that make you look relatively smaller rather than emphasize your impressive hugeness. I’ve asked the Myspecialharness.com lady about this and she says she will look out for the correct materials. If she can make one with wider straps I’ll be a repeat customer for sure!
