A story about growing up and needing diapers by Baby Butch
Billy Haines – Age 10
Suzie Haines – Age 10
Becky Haines – Age 8
Sara Haines – Mother – Age 30
Tom Haines – Father – Age 32
Mr. and Mrs. Haines have 2 daughters but cannot have another child due to a medical problem of the mother. The parents decided to adopt a son named Billy and give him the family name.
Billy is a small boy for 10 years old but well behaved. The orphanage highly recommended him as someone needing a good home. Billy has one problem worth mentioning, he occasionally wets the bed.
The orphanage keeps children in diapers thru age 5. Once a child starts first grade his/her bedwetting is dealt with differently. A thin rubber sheet is put over their mattress. Children’s drinks are limited 2 hours before bedtime. They are encouraged to get up and use the toilet when it is needed. The orphanage has a laundry and plenty of help to wash wet sheets, pajama’s, and blankets.
Billy is happy to find a home and what little he has is taken with him to the Haines home. Billy is 4’ tall, slim, and 60 lbs.
Sara his new mother is a stay at home mom. She is healthy and is 5’ 10” tall. Sara is medium build and weighs 160 lbs. Tom is a hard worker as a construction foreman. He is strong and 6’ tall weighing 200 lbs. Tom is usually working from 7 am to 4 pm.
Billy not only has 2 new parents, he has 2 new sisters. Becky is two years younger but about the same size as Billy since he is small. She is in the third grade. Suzie is the same age as Billy ten, she is in the fifth grade like Billy. She is much bigger than Billy.
A school bus picks up the children a block away and Billy will be joining them in elementary school. The Haines family lives in north Florida in a city called Wildwood. The neighborhood is a typical subdivision but not a large one. The home is single story with 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms and is very nice and modern.
Becky and Suzie moved in together and share a bedroom. Billy has a room of his own. The parents have the master bedroom right down the hallway. It is the seventh of November which is a Saturday. The weather is sunny and a bit cool outside at 10 am.
Yesterday Billy was moved from the orphanage to the Haines home. His first day with the new family was a happy one. His bed has a rubber sheet, Billy woke up dry and is happy about that.
After breakfast the family has a short meeting. “Billy I am proud you did not wet the bed,” Sara said, “we know that happens sometime so don’t be afraid to tell us if it does.”
“Yes mamm, I only wet the bed once in a while and don’t drink much before bedtime,” Billy responded.
“I am only 8 years old and have not wet the bed in years,” Becky said.
“I am 10 years old like you Billy,” Suzie said, “I have not wet the bed since I was a toddler 4 years old.”
Billy is a little embarrassed with the girls speaking up like this. It appears he is the only bed wetter in the house. Sara gives the girls a look that they know means to be nice.
“Some children still have occasional bedwetting problems until they are 12 or even older,” Sara explained. “This happens more for boys especially if they have lived a stressful life.”
“The orphanage did not use diapers on boys after starting first grade,” Billy explained, “they just washed the sheets and clothes for big boys.”
“You are a big boy Billy so I hope you can stop bedwetting,” Sara said, “I can’t have peed bed sheets and clothing to wash, it is so smelly.”
Knowing Billy has a bedwetting problem Sara has bought Huggies in their largest size. The new size 7 is for toddlers 50 lbs. and up. They will fit Billy perfectly at 60 lbs. and they are very absorbent. Sara will not mention that and see how things go.
“I bet Billy would look cute in a diaper at his age,” Becky said smiling.
“Mom is very strict so you better not wet the bed Billy,” Suzie said.
“Girls, girls, stop teasing your new brother,” mom said, “this kind of pressure is not good for him.”
Becky and Suzie know to stop teasing Billy and they do. They think he will be wetting the bed and end up in diapers. The girls go to their bedroom to play with their dolls.
“I hope you get to know a few boys in the neighborhood to play with,” Tom said to his new son. “We are glad to have you son.”
Billy goes to his bedroom which is much nicer than any one he has had before. Billy has a dresser with new clothes and there are more new clothes in the closet. Billy has a twin bed and a dresser with a lamp.
