This is often characterized by, but not exclusively, props to help them achieve that mental state, usually the wearing of babyish attire, predominantly a nappy or diaper (either cloth or disposable ) and sometime suckling on a dummy, drinking from a bottle and playing with toys of a particular era that means something to them.
