Fot the Freudian concept of psychosexual infantilism. See psychosexual stages

Infantalim is where an older child or adult exhibits the cognitive and emotional behaviour of infants. This can occur through the absence of the usual processes of maturation, in this sense it is known as primary infantalism. It can also occur, usually under stress, through the defence mechanism of regression in which case it is regared as secondary infantalism.
