Well I mean, maybe if you further introduce the concept to her, she'll get a better understanding? My situation is similar (kinda). So, I age regress for trauma coping and comfort reasons, regarding mental health and such. When my parents basically found out (catching me in littlespace, with diapers) they had a lot of questions and complaints. My dad constantly argued that it wasn't needed and that I was fully functional (from a in/continence point of view) and that there were other, more reasonable coping mechanisms that could be used. I don't think he understands that this is also a valid way of coping in a sense of like, reliving your childhood, and just the feeling of being loved and taken cared of by someone you can trust and rely on. That's something I crave personally and using that as a coping mechanism has done wonders for my mental state and overall health.
As far as your mom being cold, maybe you should try easing her into the idea instead of pressing it in on her whenever she complains about it. And if she's constantly stressing you out, (I'm not sure if your parents trust you home alone or whatever) but if you can, take some time for yourself when you have a chance at privacy, or if you have a friend/cg that could help you out over the phone or over text, that could work? All in all, if she's not willing to accept the idea, you might just have to wait to pursue this lifestyle moving out (sorry to say :/) Just make sure to let her know that you'd appreciate if she'd respect your boundaries and vise versa, to avoid future tensions or awkward situations.
