'Its just a phase, its just a phase...'

Postby mabo » Tue Mar 09, 2010 2:31 am

That is what I am currently repeating to myself every night when Caitlin wakes up anytime between 2 and 4am for 2 hours. She's at the stage where she can pull her dummy out of her mouth but isn't able to pop it back in the right way round, so ends up frustrated and then drops it or throws it across her cot :roll: :x

I cannot wait for her to be able to pop it back in herself and keep it in until she's satisfied.
When can I expect this to happen? Joshua never had a dummy or thumb and Anna was able to control her thumb from about 5 weeks so I have no idea when she'll catch on.

:babygirl:

ps, I know, I know, all babies are different bladibladiblah... :giggle: :roll:

We ended up ditching the dummy at 6 months for that reason.

Isabelle never learned to put her dummy back in and never found her thumb so we ended up ditching the dummy at around 11months...

Grace I can't remember but it seemed early to me - she's been popping her dummy back in for ages now and I'll often find her with one she's found somewhere and take it off her :roll: but once it falls out at night she's not bothered about having it back in...


With the night wakings - Grace so far has never done this but Isabelle was a bu99er for it! Like you say all kids are different and it is just a phase :)

:hug:
