No, its not weird.
It's okay to touch on your childish side a bit. Occasionally, I play with toys for a bit.

I don't think it's weird. A lot of the time, we tend to think that when we reach adulthood we should stop doing everything that seems 'childish'. But we don't always have to do this. There are even collector edition dolls that people take care of and dress up!

Some people might judge, but otherwise, it's just something that you do that gives you a sense of control and an expression of your creative side.

As long as you have other age appropriate interests in your life and don't spend time playing with your dolls over doing other things (like socializing or working) then it's fine.

I don't think it's weird; and I do think Celyn provides a couple good points!

There are such things as collector edition dolls, such as those antique ones from the 19th century, that are worth thousands of dollars because they are so rare or one of a kind.

The other thing, as Celyn said, as long as your interest in playing with dolls doesn't overtake your life and interfere from your daily obligations–such as school or work or social life–then there is absolutely nothing wrong with it.

This is quite normal, these are memories, and you are a completely normal person, if you recognize and give birth to a laugh, just do not pay attention to it.

I think it can be normal, though I'm curious as to why baby dolls give you a sense of control and if maybe there are other things going on in your life that you need to deal with. There's nothing wrong with playing with dolls, but if it's as a coping mechanism that you use as way to avoid dealing with issues, then I wonder about that aspect.

This is normal, do not think that people will speak badly about you. Their arguments are their arguments. Live as you want, Hammer on principles and psi how life will change for the better!

Brooke, I don't think it is weird at all. I have a question for you though. Do you want to have a baby like a real one of your own?

I think it is normal. I am 16 and sleep with my stuffed animal Stitch and don't think that is weird. It isn't harming anyone else that you are doing it so have fun with it.
