How common is babysitting??

I'm a little who usually takes care of herself. After separating ways with my ex-daddy, my guy bestfriend used to babysit me. I have immense trust in him and didn't have any problem with slipping in little space. Now he's in relationship with a wonderful woman so before he asked her out, I suggested he should stop babysitting me. Little me is a dog running around when their leash is released. I tend to trip, fall and get hurt, more emotionally sensitive and make bad decisions which I regret in future. I've been thinking about getting myself a babysitter but from what my psychologist said, my trust issues is still deeply rooted. Please help this hooman T_T

I've wondered about this also, but having no ddlg experience, I hesitated to bring it up. From a big person perspective it might be a niche that could fit many, both time and experience wise. From a little person's perspective it could be a good resource in time of need. I suppose ideally, both should know what is wanted and what could be provided before beginning, and maybe someone(s) experienced available as a resource person. It could even be used as a trial period for people looking for more constant/permanent relationships.

I'm just a novice here, feel free to educate me, but hopefully some progress can be made to address legitimate needs.

Hi!

 

I have experience with caregivers babysitting. For me, there were times where it was fulfilling and nice and there were times where I was frustrated or emotionally hurt from the experience. It really comes down to making sure you establish some really good boundaries and discuss things completely (what to expect, things you don't want, ect)  before you accept a new babysitter. Interview the heck out of them! I have also found that there are various discord servers and what not that are geared towards babysitting, unfortunately I don't have remember the ones I used a while back but they are there! 

 

As always when it comes to your precious little side, take care of it! Treasure it, and protect it. If you feel like it would be too straining on your mental health to go through the impermanence of having a babysitter, maybe lean more into taking care of you for a little while longer and reflect on how you feel. When you are ready, caregivers will be there when you look. 

 

Best of luck <3

It's not something I could ever do as the relationship I have with my Daddy is too personal and emotionally intimate for me to want to share that with a babysitter. No matter how much I trust someone as an adult i just couldn't see being that vulnerable with someone other than my Daddy. Sharing that depth of experience with anyone other than my Daddy would just feel weird and uncomfortable for me. Ddlg is a Daddy and me thing, not a me and others thing.

 

I think a lot depends on what people want out of a babysitting experience and how they view their relationship to their caregiver.
