Totspot, Odadeo, Lil'Grams and Kidmondo are social networks where thousands of people in their 20s and 30s pretend to be their children. For example, Dominic Miguel Alexander Carrasco's Totspot page insists his favorite nicknames are Buddy or Big Boy and that his favorite book is Green Eggs and Ham. In real life, Dominic is only 7 months old and no doubt wishes he were back in that warm dark happy place. Kristin Chase, 29, does the same thing with her kid, Cameron.“It does feel a little funny to personalize it in his voice and be connecting to other babies as him,” Chase admits to the New York Times. If it feels funny, Kristin, perhaps you shouldn't do it — even if everyone else is. As Dr. Benjamin Spock once wrote, "The more people have studied different methods of bringing up children the more they have come to the conclusion that what good mothers and fathers instinctively feel like doing for their babies is the best after all."
