I also do this. I have no clue why and didn't realize it until my partner pointed it out. I feel like it's a remnant of being a child and feeling safe and comfortable. I have tried to stop doing it, but it's really hard. I just automatically switch into little kid mode. It doesn't happen in sexual situations, just when I'm feeling really comfortable and intimate. If my partner couldn't handle it and asked me to stop I had to take a little communication time-out and switch mental tracks. It definitely feels weird getting called out, but I understand that it's weird to be talking with a grown up 5 yr old. I really don't know how I would go about correcting it out of my personality or even if I should.
