    Hi. I'm new here and as well to being classified as a middle.
    My Dom and I want to know, what is the difference between a caregiver and a Daddy?

    To me Caregiver, Mommy, and Daddy are all the same thing. Caregiver is the more gender neutral term, however I've heard of female Caregivers being called Daddy. Have yet to hear of a male Caregiver being called Mommy, though.

    I guess "caregiver" is a more gender-neutral term, but yes a daddy is most likely a caregiver. When I think of daddy I think of caregiver, but some people who are in dom/sub relationships like to be called daddy sometimes as well. 
    For me, I have a friend who age regresses and it isn't sexual/related to kink so they use the term carer or caregiver instead of daddy/mommy, but people who are into DDLG (daddy dom little girl) are caregivers if they call themselves daddy 99% of the time! So feel free to use both as a couple, theirs no "difference" per se, just some people who call themselves daddy might not be a caregiver. 
    Hope that helped, best luck on your journey here!

    Caregiver is a category or style of d-types. Its usually specific to a cg/l (caregiver/little) relationship. Daddy is a title that some people use, and it's often found in cg/l spaces, but can also be used outside cg/l spaces. It often carries the implication that that d-type is more focused on nurturing than some of the other aspects of being a d-type. But there's always exceptions to that rule as it can be very personal and open to interpretation.

    Caregiver is a gender neutral term (although there are definitely girls who prefer to be called Daddy then Mummy/Mommy so any of the words is up to preference) but caregiver tends to also be used massively in the age-re community (although Daddy/Mommy is also used).

    I suppose what I mean to say it's what the category is, whereas Daddy is moreso a title. But then again caregiver could be a title in it's own right (but I also wouldnt look at someone and be like "come here caregiver" haha, but thats just me)
